The delivery of Finncold MTM-1 thawing cabinet to the Saaremaa fish processing plant in Estonia.

  • News

Läätsa Kalatööstus, the dynamic fish processing plant on the island of Saaremaa was looking for a suitable solution for thawing the imported frozen raw material for almost three years. "Checking the options available on the market took its time, but we finally decided on the Kometos Finncold thawing cabinet," says the CEO Toomas Aul. "The overall expertise and references of Kometos speak for themselves and are in a class of their own," he continues.

"Today, a thawing cabinet is a must and has a huge benefit in the production management. We considered the purchase here in Saaremaa for a long time and once we reached the decision, Kometos quickly delivered us the thawing solution, which was easy to implement". 

Kometos has a long and solid expertise in various thawing and tempering solutions and strong process management skills.  The thawing cabinet assembly contains all the required technology including moisturizing solutions. Additionally, the Kometos Finncold MTM-1 thanks to its compact size can be easily placed in a lower than regular production space.

Kometos has further developed its thawing systems in order to better meet the requirements of the users

  • News

Thawing system innovation includes a new advanced aggregate with bus-controlled EC-fans, which blowing power may be adjusted from 0 to 100%. The aggregate may turn the blowing direction, if necessary, in order to reverse the back pressure during the process, and achieve a smoother thawing result, especially when the target temperature of the product is on the plus side.

For heating, the energy is used that already exists in the company, such as waste energy, hot water, steam. The system may also be linked to the company's glycol chilling system. In this way, the energy consumption of the process is only 10% of the normal energy consumption.

The innovation has been test-driven and tested at our factory in Kauhajoki, and the first delivery to the customer will take place next week.

Minimani engaged in a carwash business - guaranteeing the best wash in Vaasa

  • News

In the future, clients travelling with a car will also be able to enjoy carwash services in Vaasa, as the land plot of the hypermarket will accommodate a modular car wash produced by Kometos, with two separate washing lines.

Well over a million cars visits the Minimani yard in Vaasa per each year. "You would expect that some of the clients would like to have their cars washed on the same trip," reckons Heikki Tynjälä, the managing director of Minimani Yhtiöt Oy, eyeing the flow of cars

Minimani operates in five regions. Vaasa is the first, where Minimani is testing its own car washing business.

Branching out to the new territory was preceded by careful groundwork.

"We discussed various options with several equipment and hall manufacturers. The combination we finally selected - the Kometos Finmodules premises and Prowash machines - proved to be the best alternative for us," Tynjälä tells.

Two advantages in one go

Tynjälä with his procurement team opted for FMA-TUPLA, which is an unmanned and fully automatic car wash solution equipped with two parallel washing machinery lines.

The Kometos Finmodules car wash solution is completely modern and digital, as everything is run by a computer – general safety, payment arrangements and links to the building technologies and shopping systems. 

Guaranteed the best wash in town

The preparations took a couple of months. The asphalt paved yard was ready, but the Finmodules car wash solution also requires building permits, water, sewer, grease traps and sand separators. In this case the client took care of the foundation and connections, following the instructions provided by Kometos. Kometos delivered the hall onto the ready foundation slab, installing the car wash machines together with accessories for on-site test runs.

"We reckoned that the procurement would be profitable. The capacity of the equipment is more than enough: the two machines working at full capacity yield more than 20,000 washes per month," CEO Tynjälä estimates.
