Freezing holds

mmi-1.jpgInitially built as salting holds, only in 1960 were converted into places to store the fish refrigerated after a previous ultra-freezing process in the deck pond.
 
With a capacity for 200 tons, these holds have cooling systems (15 to 20 negative degrees Celsius) which act by the action of cold coils placed on the roof.
