Rapp Marine has achieved a notable first by securing the orders to supply full electric deck machinery packages for two twin-rig midwater trawlers to be built by Karstensens Shipyard for Danish owners.

To be built for Astrid Fiskeri AS, Skagen, the 69.9m Rockall will feature extremely powerful, customised, electric trawl winches and net drums in relation to the vessel’s size ship’s size. The extensive array of deck machinery for Rockall will include 3 x 80t split trawl winches and 4 x 60t/80t net drums, in addition to electric tail end, mooring, auxiliary, net sounder and anchor, and hose reels.

Rapp Marine will supply a similar set of deck equipment as that on the 63m pelagic trawler Themis, owned by Themis Fiskeri AS, Thyborøn, including 3 x 60t split trawl winches and 4 x 34t/60t net drums.

Morten Stenkjær of Rapp Marine said: “We are very happy that we have signed not one but two new orders for the supply of complete electrical deck machinery packages for the pelagic trawlers Rockall and Themis. These deliveries are important milestones for Rapp Marine.

“We are grateful to the owners, Astrid Fisheries and Themis Fiskeri, and also the builder, Karstensens Skibsværft, for the confidence they have once again shown in Rapp Marine.

“The pelagic fleet has traditionally been a loyal user of Rapp Marine hydraulic deck machinery over the years; machinery which was continuously developed in accordance with the clear requirements of, and feedback from, the fishing fleet. When we developed the electrical equipment for the fishing fleet, Rapp Marine based the technology on the same experiences, philosophy and reliability that has stood us in good stead over the years.

“It is extremely gratifying that the pelagic fleet is now acknowledging the significant technical and commercial benefits of installing electrical deck machinery for twin-trawl pelagic fishing on new build
