YANMAR Europe B.V. has delivered its 160th engine for the fishing industry in Scandinavian waters. More than 45 engines, including this one, have already found their way into Norway through shipyard Larsnes Mek. Verksted AS.

The Norwegian fishing industry has a new jewel in the crown: the recently launched Stormhav, an almost 28-meter-long combined line and net ship. This netter/longliner replaces a 25-year-old vessel and represents a safer workplace for the crew and better conditions for onboard fish processing
When the Norwegian fishing company Remøybuen ordered a new deep-sea fishing vessel, they said she was going to set a new standard as one of the smallest boats with electric winches on board.

"Our ships have had YANMAR engines for over 20 years; also on board of MS Gunnar K. Why?
"They're nice engines. I'm very happy with them, everything's functioned great so far. That's crucial, as we operate day in, day out and our client wants to be sure of delivery. That means we need durable, reliable engines."
