Rapp Marine has received two new orders for the supply of complete electrical deck machinery packages for the two pelagic trawlers, Rockall and Themis, announced Morten Stenkjær, VP Sales Fisheries Rapp Marine.

Rapp Marine signed the contract in March 2016 with the shipbuilder Karstensens Skibsværft in Skagen, Denmark, for these two newbuildings. Astrid Fiskeri AS in Skagen owns Rockall, while Themis is owned by Themis Fiskeri AS in Thyborøn.
Rockall will be to fully outfitted with deck machinery suitable for twin trawl fisheries.
“Accordingly, Rapp Marine has tailored the equipment to meet the company's needs and requirements,” Stenkjær said. “That means we will be delivering to Rockall extremely powerful winches in relation to the ship's size, which includes three 80-ton trawl winches and four net drums.”
Themis, meanwhile, is also equipped for twin trawl fishery from Rapp Marine, but with slightly less capacity on the winches.
Stenkjær said, “The pelagic fleet has traditionally been a loyal user of Rapp Marine hydraulic deck machinery over the years, machinery which was continuously developed in accordance with the clear requirements of, and feedback from, the fishing fleet. When we developed the electrical equipment for the fishing fleet we based the technology on the same experiences, philosophy and reliability that has stood us in good stead over the years.”
“In the fisheries market, we have previously delivered electrical equipment to bottom trawlers and supplied electrical deck machinery to single trawl pelagic fishing vessel in the United States,” Stenkjær said. “We have also delivered electric deck machinery to many vessels within the marine and offshore markets.”
