Containerized flake ice plants.

This order was for two containerized flake ice plants for a shrimp farm in Madagascar. Since the transportation of the containers had to be done by narrow mud roads the planning of the shipment and packing of the containers had to be done very carefully. Otherwise the equipment would suffer damage from the long journey.

On site in Madagascar the containers were mounted on a locally built steel frame. Wagons and lorries drive underneath the container and ice is discharged through the electrically operated ice chute.

The ice is used to chill shrimps.
