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. Now the ‘eye-catcher’ is ready to hit the Norwegian fishing fields with an eco-friendly, all-electric wind system and a YANMAR engine that is both environmentally friendly and affordable to operate
For the third time, the Norwegian operator HP Holmeset A.S. ordered a new longliner – called Geir – from the Norwegian naval architect Skipsteknisk.
"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."
"We are very happy with the performance of these engines, and I am very excited to install the second pair in our new boat"
"It cleans very well in troublesome situations and also has a lower fuel consumption than many of the alternative cleaners,”
It is a well-known fact that fish farming nets need to be cleaned periodically to maintain water quality and protect the fish against disease and here at International Aquafeed we are always seeking to champion success stories within the industry. One such story comes from net cleaning company Yatek.
