Refrigeration Plant Expansion at Morpol

Morpol is situated in Ustka, Poland and owned by the Norwegian Marine Harvest. With approx. 80,000 m2 and 3,000 employees Morpol is one of the world’s largest salmon processing facilities. After a successful growth period at Morpol, ALECTIA, who is now merged with NIRAS, was involved in the development of a Master Plan and subsequently a Conceptual Design for expansion of the facility, and, in continuation of these works, ALECTIA, now NIRAS, was given the task to expand and develop the belonging refrigeration plants.

Morpol’s existing facility, which is already of a considerable size, will be increased with a total of 10,000 m2. Part of this increase includes an expansion of the existing refrigeration plant – a task which ALECTIA, now NIRAS, has jumped into with our extensive experience in the area.

Several roles

It requires great experience as well as a good overview to make such a project proceed smoothly.

On the basis of our extensive experience and broad competencies, Morpol chose to assign the entire management of the refrigeration plant expansion to ALECTIA, now NIRAS,.

First of all we have made a so-called “Tender Specification” based on the Master Plan where, in details, we have defined how the entire refrigeration plant will end up looking and where the right requirements have been specified in order to get proper quotations from the local contractors.

Finally, ALECTIA, now NIRAS, is the supervisor of the project and thus monitors that the contractor meets all the project requirements. Our specifications and our extensive experience ultimately ensure that Morpol gets the end product for which they have paid.

”In connection with Morpol’s expansion we have heavily focused on the flow. The expansion plans of the refrigeration plant emphasize the compliance of the highest requirements for quality, efficiency and food safety, including a minimal energy consumption,” says Kim Istvan Kaibinger, senior advisor in ALECTIA, now NIRAS,.

The building works have been in progress since June 2015 and will be completed in February 2016.
