Marel at Aqua Nor 2011

The MS 2730 advanced salmon filleter and Innova production management software are among the products featured at Marel Stand F-544, at this year’s Aqua Nor exhibition, being staged from August 16-19, in Trondheim’s Spektrum centre. As ever, a team of Marel professionals will also be on hand to discuss the company’s full range of fisheries and aquaculture-related systems and products at the Trondheim event.

Taking salmon filleting to a new level

Launched at this year’s International Seafood Show in Brussels, the MS2730 offers several new features designed to take salmon filleting to a new level in terms of yield, throughput and automation. Capable of filleting up to 25 fish per minute, the unit comes with automatic adjustment for a variety of sizes between 2-10 kg.

Fish are placed belly-down at the in-feed for faster and easier operation, while a new set of circular knives cuts the fish from gut to tail. As the meat close to the centre bone is included in the fillets, the end result is high-quality fillets with improved yield and increased throughput.

• New cut ensures improved yield
• High capacity, 25 fish/min
• Automatic adjustment for sizes ranging from 2-10 kg
• User-friendly interface
• Multiple programme storing
• Variable pressure on fish during filleting
• Communicates with Marel trimming robot
