Euronete is the world's leading supplier of fishing nets, wire and fibre ropes and related fishing gear.
WireCo WorldGroup (Euronete/Oliveira) will be exhibiting Eurocross® netting on their joint exhibition stand at DanFish this year.
Euronete, supplier of fishing nets, wire and fibre ropes, will introduce new products with exclusive benefits at IceFish.
WireCo WorldGroup Inc, producer of wire rope, electromechanical cable and wire products, has completed the acquisition of Koninklijke (Royal) Lankhorst Euronete Group B.V.
Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group and the Le Brun brothers have come to an agreement for the former to acquire the brother’s company – Group Le Drezen in Guilvinec, France.
Euronete says that it's commitment to the fishing industry is “Leading in a competitive Sea” and, due to this commitment, the company is continuing to develop new products and improve the present product range.
Euronete, the Fishing Division of the Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group and one of the world’s major producers of heavy duty nets for either bottom trawling or pelagic fishing, has lately increased the number of its branches around the world to ensure a better distribution all over the world.
After one year of developments, Royal Lankhorst Euronete Group has just launched Blue Fin Combination Rope, a new combination rope made out of double galvanised wires and with improved Eurosteel yarns to increase the abrasion properties. The company says that the new rope has already been tested in the UK, Portugal, Spain and the USA with very good results.
Euronete has introduced Euronema S.C.S. (single covered strand) to allow easy splicing. The new rope has a construction of 8x1, and each strand is covered with high tenacity PE Premium. This construction makes a nice round, has excellent abrasion properties and better spooling on the winches than a 12 strand construction.
Trawling specialist VÃ³nin Ltd has equipped the Finnur Fridi (see World Fishing, February), with toughened purse seining and pelagic trawling gear. Called the "Blue Whiting trawl", it has a circumference of 2,048 metres, 32-metre meshes in the forenet and is made of braided "Super 12" material in different colours. This gives a higher braking strength than the old material.
Euronete, based in Oporto, and making heavy nets for bottom trawls and pelagic fishing, report they have opened a new braiding factory in the north of Portugal.
The fibres used to produce fishing nets have changed so much in the last three years. This is due to new extrusion technologies and the improvements in HTPE raw materials with a new range of additives that can improve strength, elongation to break and abrasion.
