Salmon slaughterhouse in custom-built 40-ft container.
DC-Supply A/S – Danish Container Supply, has built several custom salmon slaughterhouses in containers – destined for the Faroe Islands at our very own workshop. Our unique experience in this field enables us to deliver highly particular and very customer-specific solutions, resulting in the final result being fully adapted to each individual customer’s wishes and needs.
Based on a 40-ft standard ISO container, this purpose-built salmon slaughterhouse project was planned and built in close cooperation with the customer in the Faroe Islands, where the salmon slaughterhouse will eventually be operating from. In the Faroe Islands, the high degree of expertise in salmon fishing and slaughter has been refined over many generations. Today, the industry invests heavily in continuous research and development to offer a product of the utmost quality. Here, it is of vital importance that the salmon is slaughtered in keeping with a minimal stress threshold for the fish, ensuring quality and shelf life are maximised.
From a 40-ft container to a fully custom-built salmon slaughterhouse
DC-Supply’s skilled craftsmen constructed this purpose-built salmon slaughterhouse starting with a 40-ft standard container. Our internal technical department carried out the calculations and 3D visualisation based on the Faroese customer’s specific wishes and needs, resulting in an extended amount of welding, fabricating and general blacksmith work in our own workshop that among other things expanded the container’s width and height.
A 40-ft standard container measures approx. 2.4 meters wide and 2.6 meters high – After our conversion, this custom-built salmon slaughterhouse measures 3.7 meters wide and 3.35 meters high. Providing plenty of space for the industry-specific slaughterhouse equipment installed after delivery to the customer in the Faroe Islands.
After the welding and fabrication work, the salmon slaughterhouse container is fully insulated and an interior lining is installed, along with waterproof vinyl on the walls and ceiling making the room easy to clean. A non-slip floor plate and drain in the floor finalise the interior, ensuring that the slaughterhouse workers have an optimal surface and work area to work in.
The slaughterhouse container interior is also comprised of an electrical package, LED ceiling fixtures, a stainless steel sink, and fixed supports for any slaughterhouse machinery that needs to be mounted on the floor.
Quality details create value for the customer – here is an example of 3D visualisation of a detail and the same detail on the finished container.
The visualisation work is carried out by our own internal technical department, and we also provide you with the opportunity to experience and interact with your container solution in virtual reality.
DC-Supply A/S custom-builds containers for slaughterhouses
DC-Supply A/S has delivered custom-built slaughterhouse containers from the Faroe Islands in the north all the way to Africa in the south. Another advantage of a container-based solution is that it is possible to establish slaughterhouse facilities within a fairly short time – even in more inaccessible and desolate parts of the world.
Whether you want a mobile solution that can be easily transported from place to place on land – or one that works directly on open water as seen here – or perhaps the slaughterhouse is to be permanently operated at the same location, it’s all entirely up to you. Regardless of your needs – with our custom-built container slaughterhouses, you will receive a reliable, cost-effective solution – fully tailored to your specific slaughterhouse production scenario or indeed, any needs that you may have.
