Customer Solution: Reimagining the Modern Food Processing Factory with Norsk Kylling
When Norway’s leading poultry producer, Norsk Kylling, planned its new production facility, the company had clear goals in mind, create a signature building that put sustainable food production, Norwegian agriculture, and animal welfare first.
JBT proved an ideal collaborator—providing a dedicated team to support the project at every step. Energy-smart solutions were core to the build, as Norsk Kylling wanted to leverage renewable solutions.
“Among other things, we invested in electrification and focused on energy flexibility, primarily through energy storage,” said Norsk Kylling’s Project Leader Håvard Staverlökk. “The plant is built for zero emissions and uses only renewable energy, and we have reduced GHG emissions by 100% compared with our old factory.” Learn more about our partnership.
Customer Solution: Saving Resources at HKScan
For our customer HKScan, a large producer of meat, plant-based, and ready meals based in Sweden, the LVS refrigeration system is an ideal energy-smart solution. The system has enabled HKScan to save on hot gas, leftover energy often available in large quantities in refrigeration systems, which can be used to defrost freezers.
“With its intelligent hot gas control, we use much less hot gas to defrost than our other freezers and we avoid having to place the freezer in que system,” said Tobias Janson, technical manager at HKScan Sweden. The company can now defrost up to three freezers at a time, enabling quicker turnaround and water and energy savings.
