Over 500 lots of seafood processing equipment formerly owned by Adak Seafood will be sold at auction on Tuesday, June 18, starting at 10 a.m. Hawaiian-Aleutian Daylight Time at the Hilton Garden Inn in Anchorage Alaska.

 

The equipment is located in a recently updated 250,000 square foot state-of-the-art processing facility in Adak, Alaska. Farmington Hills, Mich.-based Hilco Industrial, which conducts 75 machinery and equipment auctions in a wide range of industries annually, will conduct the auction.

Adak Seafood opened originally as Ada Fisheries in Anchorage in 1986. The facility, updated in 2005, is located on the island of Adak, the southernmost city in Alaska near the western end of the Aleutian Islands. The facility processed cod primarily, as well as halibut, blackcod, crab and pollock, Hilco says.

The plant's location is very accessible to the area's many fishermen, Hilco says. The area is one of the largest contributors to the world's supply of Bering Sea crab and pollock.

The equipment offered features nine fish sorting line with conveyors, sorters and 35,000-gallon holding tanks. Nineteen pollock lines also include several heading machines. Multiple crab lines are also available, which include giller stations, cookers, coolers, dip glaze tanks, chillers and an ice flake machine. A cod liver oil processing line, other heading machines, freezers, mixers and generators will also be available.

Interested parties can bid in person or register and participate in the auction in real time using HilCast, a live online and phone bidding system, Hilco says. For those who do not wish to travel to the sale or use the WebCast bidding technology, Hilco will also provide bidders the ability to place bids on each of the lots using a pre-bid submission option. Hilco says it will also provide bulk bidders the ability to purchase all assets in bulk subject to piecemeal bids.
