Skretting – installing cutting-edge control and instrumentation with no downtime

Skretting is a leader in the fish feed industry, supplying high quality feed products and services worldwide. To enhance the nutritional value of their already high quality feed, they decided to add strict doses of newly developed micronutrients.

The client need

This addition of these micronutrients meant a change to the manufacturing process. Skretting wanted to do this at their Invergordon plant in Easter Ross, one of the company’s five UK sites.

The NES response

They asked us to extend the existing ASI control system – a data network system that allows multiple instruments and devices be connected using a single data cable. The control system can store, convey and dose the nutrients into the manufacturing process. We also installed the cabling, containment and controls for the 16 new dosing system conveyors.

The client benefits

We delivered this project on time and without any disruption to plant operations. We achieved this by listening, planning and working closely with the client at every step. No coordination issues and no accidents led to a quick start up after commissioning. The customer was delighted with the standard of work and helpfulness of NES staff on site.
