Pescapeces S.A., part of Grupo Geopoxi, has selected MARCO to replace Pacific Tuna vessel´s existing purse winch by a WS-484 winch model to improve vessel´s performance. This is the 2nd contract awarded by Grupo Geopaxi to MARCO in less than one year, which highlights the Ecuadorian ship owner´s trust on MARCO technology.
Along with the WS-486 model, the WS-484 purse seine winch model has become an industry´s standard for 900 – 1200 Tn tuna vessels.
