Thanks to the Al Mana Group’s experience in construction and a strong management team leading the project, the plant was completed in a truly exceptional time. Success was down to the close cooperation of all parties involved. After two years of planning and construction, the plant was commissioned in 2018, exactly 24 months from kickoff. Plant manager Said Jamous says, “The team members from Marel Poultry did a great job in supervising installation, commissioning and training. They were very helpful and did their job very professionally. The team made great efforts to train our staff effectively and used every minute to teach our people all possible knowledge on the equipment. Operational and technical training was very valuable and efficient. I’m convinced that our team, including our technicians and operators, is now well qualified to run all lines.”
In the Mazzraty plant, a semi-automated GP System takes care of live bird supply. After being shackled, broilers are killed manually according to Halal rules. As Mazzraty wants to recycle both materials and energy, the Marel Poultry scalder is the perfect choice. Thanks to its closed cover, steam can’t escape. Instead, the preheated air is used to agitate the scald water. Even heat generated by the motor is used efficiently in the process.
Full-blown evisceration department
The Mazzraty evisceration department is an excellent example of a completely automated process. All operations are performed mechanically with virtually no human input needed. Installed behind the Vent Cutter and Opening Machine, the Nuova eviscerator does its job precisely. This includes automatically rehanging viscera drawn from the cavity to a viscera pack shackle; giblet harvesting is also fully automated. The PGI always has been and still is a unique machine which removes intestines and gall bladder without the risk of damage to the liver. Heart, lungs, gizzard and liver are also harvested automatically by various Marel Poultry machines.
