Faroe Seafood installs iSYM Pair Trawl on all eight trawlers
The Atlantic Fish fare exhibition in Faroe Islands in May 2007 ended up with a huge order for our iSYM Pair Trawl systems. During 2007 we will install the system on all of the Faroe Seafoods fleet vessels.
– We believe that with this system we will increase our catch efficiency, which of course is important in our line of business. Another reason that we have chosen iSYM Pair Trawl is due to the fact that we have seen how well it has worked for other vessels here in the Faroe Islands and how their investments are paying off.
When it comes to their expectations to the iSYM Pair Trawl, Jonsvein’s comments:
– We have great expectations of the new system. It’s important for us to have the latest technology on our vessels to catch more fish and save fuel. The skipper has a better workplace because he gets more accurate information about the distance between the two vessels, automatic control of the winches, and the radio technology which keep both of the skippers updated at all time.
