Norte II Penitentiary (Pamplona, Spain) - Pamplona
- Project: Norte II Penitentiary in Pamplona
- Date: 2012
- Installation carried out by: Madrid Delegation.
When setting up Norte II management, the State Company for Penitentiary Infrastructures and Equipment (SIEP) publicly called for bids to find a supplier capable of meeting the supply and preparation demands of a large establishment, which also had the sufficient experience to meet the special requirements of a prison environment. The contract was awarded to Fagor Industrial.
Fagor Industrial´s work in this case was not an integral project, as the equipment level in prisons is always the same; its contribution was determined by bid specifications which were scrupulously complied with.
What Fagor Industrial did perform, together with another works coordinator designated by SIEP, was the work management to adapt the existing facilities to its equipment.
By contrast, much more responsibility and autonomy were possible in the training workshop, as Fagor Industrial has been the prescriber in the design of this kind of centre since the first one was commissioned two years ago.
The complex is divided into two main areas, the Social Integration Centre (CIS), for open-regime prisoners, prisoners in advanced integration and prisoners under conditional release; and the Penitentiary itself.
Fagor Industrial has provided equipment for two kitchens: a kitchen for food preparation for prisoners and prison officers, and a training workshop kitchen for use by a selected groups of prisoners in order to train professionally.
In addition, it has provided equipment for various rooms and residential modules all over the prison.
The equipment provided by Fagor Industrial for the Norte II Penitentiary comprises items ranging from the very large to the very small - including auxiliary cooking items such as knife sterilising cabinet, professional tin openers, or four spiral dough makers - spanning the cooking, oven, commercial refrigeration, dishwashing and storage areas.
For the cooking section, an electrical stove, eight gas stoves and one vitro electric stove have been provided, as well as eight gas and five electric deep-fryers, four gas boiling pans, three large-capacity direct heat boiling pans, six gas pans, four gas and one electric fry-tops, as well as a 4-metre central modulation kit and hoods for ovens, stoves, centrals, fryers, pans and boiling pans.
The ovens provided for the project include three mixed injection Concept ovens, two gas Concept Convection ovens, and one Visual Plus oven.
INDUSTRIAL REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT:
It includes a blast chiller, a refrigerated antechamber with refrigeration equipment, two freezing chambers, five preservation chambers and one mixed chamber, twelve freezer cabinets, three- and four-part refrigerated bottle cabinets and two combi refrigerators.
For dishwashing a hood-type Advance dishwasher has been provided, as well as an Advance dishwasher, an electronic rack conveyor dishwasher and a modular dishwasher, as well as two utensil washers.
Kitchen, snack, and cooking equipment regulation cabinets have been provided.
This equipment was complemented by work tables, countertops and shelves, as well as by a generous provision of transport elements, which here play a main role in the meal distribution structure, including self-service tray trolleys, waste trolleys and various tray trolley formats.
