TH COMPANY´s “Tomorrow´s Shrimp Trawler” project will be funded by the Basque Government´s Hazitek business R&D support programme, co-financed by the European Regional Development Funds. The project's goal is to develop the necessary deck machinery, as well as the hydraulic system, to improve the operability and safety of the current shrimp trawler´s fleet.
Nowadays, these small trawlers fishing manoeuvre is being performed almost manually with the unique help of a small deck winch. This fact generates numerous inefficiencies due to breakdowns and increases the fuel consumption as vessels need to return to the seaport for technical assistance.
With the aim of being able to help the industry to evolve, TH COMPANY project looks forward to design and developed all the deck equipment needed to be able to improve and ease the fishing manoeuvre and reinforce operator’s safety.
For more than 50 years, Marco technology has played a key role in the development of the fishing and shipbuilding industries. Marco equipment is widely acknowledged as robust and reliable even in the toughest of marine environments.
Its emphasis on innovation has enabled Marco to develop key equipment such as the purse seine winch or power block, which facilitates tuna and sardine fishing operations and helps make them more profitable. The MARCO Puretic Power Block revolutionized purse seine fishing and have become an industry´s standard with over 20,000 units in operation in purse seiners across the world.
