Case Study

About this job
New England Seafood is one of the UK’s leading importers and suppliers of fresh and frozen premium sustainable fish and seafood.Based in Chessington, Surrey, it sources 30 species of wild and farmed fish, as well as seafood, from around 40 countries and supplies leading supermarkets, including Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose, along with restaurants, markets and shops all over Britain.

Requirement
Fish needs to be frozen at an extremely low temperature in order to keep it in prime condition. However, the company noticed how the containers of fish were briefly exposed to warmer air when they were removed from their freezers prior to being loaded onto a refrigerated lorry. To prevent this, it needed a form of insulated shelter that would keep the atmosphere cold during this transfer process.

Tunnels
New England Seafood commissioned three of our lightweight retractable tunnels, one for each of its freezers. Each one was securely attached to the freezer and measured 4m in length when pulled out, but just 70cm when retracted. Skirting around the bottom of the tunnels and sliding enclosures on the front of each ensured that the air inside remained cold.

Outcome
Thanks to the protection of the tunnels – which could also be pushed back when not in use- the company was able to ensure that the containers remained as cold as possible during the transition.
