An expertly phased construction program and careful coordination between the core project team allowed the client to successfully double their ripening capabilities in just 36 weeks while maintaining all existing ripening and production commitments.
Fyffes Group Limited had scope to enlarge and modernise their existing Banana Ripening facility and awarded MTX the design, supply and installation contract. Upon completion of the initial construction phase of the project, which included a 3750m² extension to the existing facility and once all designs had been finalised, MTX were able to start work on the installation and commissioning of 36 No. 60 Pallet MTX Ripening Rooms.
The construction program stipulated that the rooms were “to be handed over to the client on a uniquely phased basis throughout the construction period enabling the client to relinquish existing rooms for decommissioning and removal” with the aim of reducing disruption to staff and daily production schedules.
