J & E Hall units impress in fishing industry project

J & E Hall commercial condensing units featured in a major project to future-proofed facilities for the fishing industry at Whitehaven's historic harbour in Cumbria. The units are providing the cooling for three cold rooms in the fish hall at the North Quay inner basin. The hall is used mainly for the short-term storage of catches by boats operating in the Irish Sea. The vast bulk of the catch is shellfish, with the remainder flatfish and whitefish. Bait is also stored on site.

The refrigeration equipment, operating on R449A was installed by Carlisle-based Refrigeration (Mitton) Ltd. The J & E Hall units were two JEHS 0250-B2-M3 and two JEHS 0200-B2-MS Fusion Scroll Commercial Condensing Units supplied by refrigeration equipment wholesalers FSW.

The initial part of the job was to dismantle the existing cold rooms, decommission the refrigeration systems and remove them from the site.  The new cold rooms were installed and then  all the new refrigeration equipment and the control panels. The final part of the contract was to relocate an ice-flaking machine to operate above the new freezer room which would allow the flaked ice to drop via a chute to storage bins within the freezer room.

Alex Mitton Director of Refrigeration (Mitton) Ltd said: " It was a very smooth and efficient project – something to be proud of – and from our point of view I don't think the job could have gone any smoother. We love the J & E Hall equipment. We have used it for years and I cannot recall any issues. It's always been readily available for jobs if you get an order and need to move quickly. The sales and technical support from FSW and from J & E Hall were fantastic as well."
