Monday, March 14, 2011
Rapp Hydema has just completed successful sea trials of electric winches for the F/V Thorunn Sveinsdottir, an Icelandic fishing-trawler. The substantial winch suite supplied includes Split Trawl (2), Sweep Line (2), Gilson (2), Cod-End, Out-Haul, Auxiliary and other winches, net reels, and Anchor Windlass. Rapp has been a long-time supplier worldwide of such devices—but this was a unique order. Rapp has some of its newest research-and-development achievements on display.
