Get to know THE

Labrador Salt fish palnt

by Martak

One of Martak’s notable projects of the year was our project with the Labrador Fishermen’s Union Shrimp Co.!

Martak is excited to announce that the salt fish factory that we set up in Labrador, Canada, is up and running. Martak designed and customized a complete salt fish factory that fitted the Labrador Fishermen´s Union Shrimp Co. needs, based on their space and requirements.

Along with designing and manufacturing, Martak also sent their team of experts to set up the salt fish plant. One of the most critical factors of a successful plant is good operating skills and maintenance for the high-end technology used in the plant. Martak offers training by our experts on operating and maintaining the machinery.

Pall M. Magnusson explains how the project went

When did the project start?

The project began in November 2020.

Did you face any challenges? 
The most challenging part of this project was the timeframe. We had a strict timeframe due to the fishing season that started on 1st August, but we successfully got the salt fish processing plant up and running before the season began

This time we had from November 2020 until August 2021 would, in “normal” situations, be a longer than usual timeframe, and we could get everything up and running months before that, but due to the pandemic, it was a different situation

Covid restrictions made traveling more difficult than before. Canada had closed their borders, and we struggled with getting our experts on the site. The global supply chain had collapsed, resulting in a much longer delivery time than ever before. The extended delivery time of critical parts such as computer parts, electronic components slowed us down, but in the end, we were able to finish right on time! This was, of course, a global challenge, but I am proud of my team for handling this situation so well.

What was the most exciting part of this project?

It is always a pleasure making a complete range factory, where we get to design and manufacture the entire machinery line. Each processing plant is different depending on the client’s needs and the size of the space. When we build the entire line, we can maximize the space by customizing each machine, infeed, conveyors, and more for the optimum success of the plant.

The local community and our client were equally excited to see this project come together. Setting up the processing plant was just the beginning of our cooperation. Martak’s strives to build long-term relationships with their clients, and we will keep up with our technical support and maintenance in the future.

We are looking forward to the next fishing season and seeing this factory grow and succeed.
