Ibercisa will exhibit its latest technology at Nor-Fishing

Marine deck machinery company, Ibercisa, will exhibit its latest technology in electrically driven machinery at Nor-Fishing in August.

The company says that this technology is enabling it to gain a strong market position in Northern Europe, where the Danish, Norwegian, Dutch, Russian and Icelandic fleets are undergoing a period of renovation. Owners are betting strongly on introducing new technology to reduce running costs on vessels - and at the same time rendering them more cost efficient on fuel and more environmentally friendly.

In the Norwegian market - one of the most demanding from a technological point of view and difficult for foreign companies to gain access to - Ibercisa has already supplied fishing machinery for important owners such as Volstad, REM and Andenesfiske. The company has supplied a number of electric trawl winches, as well as gilsons, netting winches, leading line winches, auxiliary winches, net drums, cod-end winches and capstans.

In the Danish market, Ibercisa has signed a contract with the owner Rederiet Ruth for the supply of a package of electrical winches to be installed onboard a pelagic fishing boat under construction at Karstensens Shipyard. The 86m boat is the first to use three main trawl winches and four net drums, two of 34m3 and two of 40m3. The order includes a total of 27 electric winches, driven by frequency inverters and with AFE energy return system. Another vessel under construction at Karstensens, the Beinur will also be supplied with electrically driven machinery by Ibercisa.

Ibercisa has supplied the Dutch owner Parleviet with naval and deck machinery for its trawlers under construction at the Turkish shipyard Tersan. Two trawlers of 86m length and 16m width are given electric trawl winches with 340KW engines for 3,300m of 32mm cable and line pull of 44.9 tons at 39.4 m/min on the first layer.

Russia is another relevant market in Ibercisa's portfolio of recent orders. The owners, Collective Farm After V.I. Lenina: Collective Farm Andeg and JSC Murmanrybflot are introducing electrically driven machinery on their trawlers under construction.

In the USA, where the renewal of the fleet is under consideration, Ibercisa has recently supplied an electrically driven winch package for deck machinery for American Seafood, and has supplied the trawler Northern Jaeger with trawl and gilson electric winches, as well as for the vessel Seafisher for Cascade Fishing Inc.

In Iceland, one of the latest contracts signed by the Chilean-Icelandic company Friosur Grandi Group will include electrically driven machinery for the trawler Unionsur.
