for specialised training to operate the machine. Machine has
no need for maintenance or breakdowns which means they
don’t have any call out cost which is great for the bottom
dollar they have found the machine reliable.
Skretting, a Nutreco company, is a world leader in the manufacture and supply of aquaculture feeds. In 2019 alone Skretting produced 21.5 million portions of seafood per day globally.
Skretting has production facilities in 18 countries on five continents, and manufactures and delivers high quality feeds from hatching to harvest for more than 60 species.
Operating a large processing plant in Cambridge, Tasmania, Skretting found themselves struggling with an increasing volume of bulk bags and a rapidly-deteriorating vertical baler which was fast becoming a WHS hazard as well as a labour-intensive bottleneck in their operations.
After a period of consultative engagement with Waste Initiatives equipment specialists, the operations and commercial team at Skretting approved Waste Initiatives recommendation for a highly-automated, bespoke SC3000 Compactor and specialised loading bins to suit the site material handling equipment and the waste profile being fed into the compactor.
A special purpose hopper was designed & fitted with auto-start photocells fitted to enable the operators to feed the compactor and drive away with no need to leave their forklifts – a significant efficiency gain for the site.
