MARCO has supplied a new model PM-065 cork line stacker for one of the tuna boats owned by fishing company Pevasa. The new unit is to replace the vessel's current model PM-4000 stacker, which was one of the first installed on the western tuna fleet.
MARCO cork line stackers are automatically synchronised with the drum rotation, enabling lines to be hauled in more quickly. Model PM-065 has a range of 6 m, a single articulation and its own hydraulic power unit. The control panel for the unit incorporates a radio control system to make it easier for operators to work. The unit has been installed on the Playa de Aritzatxu, a tuna boat built in 2001 with a length of 86.7 m, a beam of 13.85 m and tanks capable of holding over 2000 m3.
Pevasa is a Spanish firm with a fleet of 6 tuna boats, which is one of the most innovative shipowners in the sector. It was one of the first firms to fit cork line stackers on its tuna vessels, along with electrical controls for deck machinery. The firm's newest vessel, the Playa de Ris, was one of the first tuna boats to incorporate the innovative MARBOX monitoring system, which enables operators to check in real time and record the working parameters of the hydraulic system of any item of deck machinery.
MARCO is a world leader in fishing equipment, deck machinery and hydraulic systems for the fishing and shipbuilding industries. For more than 60 years, MARCO technology has played a key role in the development of the industry; the company's equipment is recognised as sure to be reliable and robust in the toughest marine environments.
