Trident Seafoods was seeking a reliable and effective refrigeration solution for one of its main seafood-processing vessels, the 338-foot Alaska Packer. Operating in the rich but unforgiving waters of the North Pacific, the ship plays a key role in Trident’s “From the Source to the Plate®” fishing, processing and distribution operations.
Trident Seafoods contracted with Logix to replace their mechanical, ship-board system that couldn’t deliver the blast tunnel uptime and temperature control parameters required in the demanding at-sea environment. Logix learned the details of Trident's needs and addressed them with a control solution that included adjustable dwell time “recipes," defrost-management tools, an intuitive user interface, and flexible data-reporting features that provide continuous feedback and ongoing improvements.Download full case study
The on-board Logix system virtually eliminated unplanned downtime on the blast freezing lines, helped provide insight into the freezer lines' status and operations, and ensured all processed fish maintains optimum processing temperatures.
The system virtually eliminated downtime on the ship’s two blast freezing lines.
“I don't think we were fully prepared for how much we got. We couldn't believe the system could tell us so much.”
