V and A Coldstore

Ice Plant

V&A Cold Store is proud to offer its growing clientele top quality (HACCP) flake ice daily.

Our three 27-ton ice makers operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to provide a daily production of 76 metric ton and a reserve of 100 metric ton in our ice bunker, with automatic rake and distribution system delivering 25 metric ton per hour. Free of any human intervention and possible contamination.

In anticipation of increasing demand in the future we have built in the option to expand our ice making and storage facilities and to complement them with a state-of-the-art tube ice manufacturing plant.


We understand that our customers need to keep turnaround time to a minimum, and we have therefore prioritised the speed and efficiency with which our ice is delivered.  In this particular regard, our quayside services offer a distinct advantage over other ice-making facilities in the Ports of Cape Town and Hermanus.

Believing firmly in the efficiency of technology, we have computerised the management of the delivery and sale of our ice.  Our customers are issued with a "smart card" which allows them to load their vessels 24 hours a day without human intervention. Thereby allowing them access to the ice when they need it and ensuring that the ice is free of any contamination.  As with similar smart cards, customers can choose either to buy their ice ‘pre-paid’, or they can be automatically invoiced on delivery.
