Icelandic fish producer Ny-Fiskur plans to install a second FleXicut system from Marel later this year for its processing facility in Sandgerdi, Iceland.

The company specialises in the processing of cod and other fresh seafood and handles about 6,000t of raw material a year for export.

Ny-Fiskur was one of the first companies to invest in the FleXicut soon after its launch in 2014. It is the 10th to be sold in Iceland.

Since its launch, it has been continuously developed and now offers virtually hands-free processing all the way from pre-trim to end-of-line, including final packing, while optimising the use of each fillet, claims Marel.

“We already know how the investment will improve processing speed and product quality, and we expect the new features will give us an important competitive edge,”​ says Ny-Fiskur md Thorsteinn Magnusson.

“We knew right from the start that FleXicut has a lot to offer our customers in terms of productivity, handling and yield,”​ adds Marel’s Oskar Oskarsson.
