More than 20 years since our first installation at Síldarvinnslan
Over 20 systems installed at Samherji's premises, trawlers and subsidiaries
''SVN invested in the ALVAR Mist Core system after extensive testing of the equipment conducted by the Icelandic Fisheries Laboratories which confirmed that the system delivered much better results in all tests. Three years later, we repeated the tests and the results were the same – a bacteria-free environment.
Our gain from the ALVAR system is obvious both from the quality and financial point of view, and in light of our experience, we have installed the Mist Core system onboard of our trawlers with great results. Cleaning the vessels is easier after we started using ALVAR. Our objective is simply that SVN will continue to be among the best when it comes to product quality and safety and the ALVAR system plays an important role in that strategy.''
Síldarvinnslan - Icelandic pelagic processor
“The numbers speak by themselves. We achieved very respectable microbiological results compared to previous years. This system has proven itself to be extremely effective to improve our cleaning performances.”
Factory Manager - Shrimp processing factory in Ilulissat, Greenland
''All our expectations have been met. I strongly recommend keeping this system active in Eastern Quebec. I also recommend using it in other production areas. It is especially useful in the cooker area.''
General Manager - Shrimp processing plant in Quebec, Canada
"The usage of the ALVAR system in Arnarlax began early in October 2020. After using the ALVAR system it has become easier to keep the slaughtering process clean. ALVAR has been very helpful in fighting Listeria. In general, the system has helped us with lowering all ATP numbers and keeping track of possible Listeria infections. In places where Listeria numbers have raised a red flag the system has helped us to find the patient zero (equipment/machinery) and with relatively easy actions we have changed the product line so that it will become easier to clean the origin of the infection. It is my opinion that the ALVAR system is a vital and good tool to get better results in the fight against Listeria."
Support Manager - Salmon processing factory in Bíldudalur, Iceland
''The ALVAR system has proven to be very effective in improving our disinfection performance and quality. Disinfection is much more manageable and cost-effective after we started using ALVAR. It has also been our goal that Jakob Valgeir continues to be among the best in terms of quality and food safety, and the ALVAR Mist system plays an essential role in this. The System is practical and straightforward to use and has minimized the amount of disinfectants used. We recommend the ALVAR Mist solutions.''
Factory Manager - Whitefish processor in Bolungarvík Iceland
“ALVAR installed a disinfection system in Oddi in August 2020. The system was installed in our salmon production factory and inside a FlexiCut machine in the whitefish processing factory. After the installation ATP levels have dropped and no obvious biofilm has formed on the processing line. ATP levels inside the FlexiCut machine have also dropped and remained steadily low since the installation. The system is easy and simple to use."

Sokolów - Meat processor member of the Danish Crown Group, Poland
‘'We are very impressed how good the ALVAR disinfection system is working on board. We operate a high-capacity shrimp factory onboard, and the cleaning and disinfection have become much easier. Significant less dirt is building up on belts and bins during production. We are saving a lot of time on cleaning cookers, equipment and tunnels. The belt cookers are much cleaner now after hours of operation. ‘'In the words of one of our managers: ''Too bad we didn't have this system from the beginning. I have been working with these cookers since 2014. It is the best I have ever seen for the cleanliness of these cookers. I wish I had my time back.'' ''.

"The ALVAR disinfection system was installed in Eðalfiskur in September 2020. Its initial purpose was to disinfect hard to reach places where ATP numbers were unacceptable. After installation, ATP numbers have dropped dramatically but cleaning has also become easier and less time-consuming. It is my opinion that the ALVAR disinfection system contributes a great deal to safety in the production of salmon."
