Landau wins UK fishing vessel contract

Landau UK has won a three year contract with Defra and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) to provide engineering services for the testing of engine power of fishing vessels around the UK.

Landau will use its expertise and skill set to ensure EU Regulations 1224/2009 and 404/2011 which require fishing vessel output is recorded correctly on its registration and whilst on fishing licence. This testing, which will be undertaken at sea, will determine the overall UK fishing fleet capacity in terms of power, at any one time.

Landau UK will measure shaft torque and revolutions per min (rpm), as well as engine power calculations using established constants for the properties of the steel in the shaft. The recorded information will accurately access the output of the engine at the shaft. Landau’s investment in this equipment can be used on any shaft driven vessel for a variety of purposes from proving engine performance to fault diagnosis.

Commenting on this contract win, Ben Metcalfe, managing director at Landau UK said, "We are delighted to have secured this three year contract with DEFRA and the Marine Management Organisation (MMO), which clearly demonstrates our expertise in the monitoring and testing of fishing vessels on large-scale projects.”
