The doors are for Qajaq Trawl's vessel Markus, a twin trawler fishing for shrimp.

The contract is for Rock Trawl Doors' new model, Sea-Lion. Three pairs of Sea-Lion doors are already in use in Greenland.

The set of Sea-Lion doors for Markus totals 13.75m2 and each door weighs 6.4t.

The company plans to deliver the new doors to Markus by the end of October this year.

“I am very pleased with this contract, especially as it for our new model, Sea-Lion,” Hans Joensen, Manager of Rock Trawl Doors, told World Fishing. “Our customers are very happy with the three sets of doors already in use.”

Markus was built by Umoe Sterkoder in Kristiansand Norway in 2003. It is 70.5m in length and the width is 15.9m.

Rock Trawl Doors has many customers in Iceland and the company hopes to meet with them during the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition.

Seventeen Icelandic trawlers are already equipped with doors from Rock Trawl Doors.
