SKIOLD Aquaculture feed processing
Reinventing and optimising the production of aquaculture feed
For more than 140 years, SKIOLD has pioneered the feed manufacturing industry. Now the time has come for aquaculture feed, as SKIOLD proudly launches a highly competitive aquaculture feed concept and process plant that ensure the production of nutritious, first-class feed for an expansive range of species.
With a new concept and plant design developed for the global aqua feed industry, SKIOLD now aims to become the preferred partner for design, engineering, construction, and maintenance of aqua feed production plants. SKIOLD aquaculture feed extrusion plants are designed to produce a versatile range of nutritious pellets that meet the needs of various warm-water species, match fish feeding habits, and ensure optimum health and feed conversion rates.
Flexible and scalable modular solution
The SKIOLD aqua feed plant solution is based on a modular concept that can be customised to meet the specific production needs of aquaculture feed manufacturers and fish farming companies of all sizes. The flexible, scalable modules provide complete solutions covering every phase of the production process – from grinding to sifting, extruding, shaping, drying, and coating/cooling feed pellets. Plant automation and control systems keep track of production data, offering full traceability and tracking of raw materials to ensure fish farm productivity and food safety.
Horizontal design for improved performance
Contrary to similar solutions, the SKIOLD concept is based on a horizontal, on-the-ground construction. The one-level plant design yields a range benefits that optimise plant performance and ensure operational reliability. Primarily, the horizontal design ensures easy access to all points of operation, increases the efficiency of daily operations, makes it easier to establish a logic product flow, improves working conditions and ensures a safer work environment.
The horizontal plant design also offers a financial advantage as one-level constructions are less expensive to build compared to complex, multiple-level tower constructions. Furthermore, the modularised SKIOLD concept offers reduced construction time and a relatively uncomplicated building process which ensures that the construction project can be managed by local civil contractors. In combination, the modular concept and the one-level plant design also ensure an agile and flexible production that can easily be upgraded or adjusted to meet changing or growing market demands.
