Fish Meal Facility Upgrade

Cambridge, Tasmania

Skretting Australia recently increased the production capacity of their fish meal factory at Cambridge by 300 per cent. The works involved construction of new grinding, bagging and coating systems as well as a major upgrade of the storage and electrical infrastructure.

pitt&sherry was engaged by Skretting to undertake the detailed design of the new buildings and site works to accommodate the new equipment. This included careful coordination with the relevant equipment suppliers, as well as the specialist process designers. This project, valued at $40 million, was implemented in a tight time frame with minimal impact to existing production.

Key environmental components of the design works included design and documentation of site and building stormwater services, comprising a first flush system to trade waste, with remaining site stormwater directed to a reed bed for polishing prior to discharge to the local catchment.

Odour was controlled with the design and installation of an organic odour bed and recirculation fan to take air from the factory area, complete with an enclosure for noise mitigation.
