This will be Seaonics first delivery to the Faroe Island and we are excited that the process with Framherji and Vard have resulted in this contract. We are confident that the system will add value to the vessel and its operations.

This contract also confirms PM-winches as the preferred option for many vessel owners, due to its extraordinary performance. For Seaonics this will be the 14´th vessel with Permanent Magnet (PM) motor driven BigDrum™ Trawl-winches and is a result of targeted R&D and close collaboration with ship designers and ship owners.

Seaonics have more than 40 electric equipment-package deliveries for trawlers in operation/order and is the leading supplier of premium electric driven winches for the new generation of bottom trawlers.  "It is great to see that our winches are recognised as a premium product" says Knut Molnes, Sales Manager for Ocean Harvesting in Seaonics.
