«Karstensens Skibsværft are very satisfied with the collaboration with Brunvoll. We believe that Brunvoll has a good product, which also satisfies our common clients. It is therefore obvious to Karstensens Skibsværft to continue with Brunvoll, as more or less the exclusive supplier of thruster systems”. Kent Damgaard, Karstensens Skibsværft
Arne Tennøy, Sales Manager Fishery & Aquaculture at Brunvoll, is very satisfied that such a large portion of the newbuildings in fishery choose Brunvoll Systems. He is glad to see that new customer relations are created while established relations constantly chooses Brunvoll solutions for their new vessels.
"Our products and systems are well adapted to requirements in modern ship designs. Karstensens design emphasizes reduced emissions and a green operating profile in their vessels. This corresponds very well with Brunvoll’s systems designed for optimum efficiency and low energy consumption“, says Tennøy.
Innovative fishing vessel owners are eager to improve their operation, and it is exciting to see that our retractable azimuth thruster is a success in fishing. Since 2004 when the purse seiner/trawler «Libas» was the first fishing vessel to install Brunvoll’s retractable azimuth thruster, several other fishing vessels have experienced the benefits of this way of manoeuvring. Especially high interest from pelagic trawlers and the longliners, and now also the Danish seine and bottom trawl vessels have shown an increasing interest.
“Efficiency and reduced emissions are important for the fishing industry, and Hybrid Propulsion Systems often in combination with a 2-speed gearbox, have proven to give significant energy savings. Brunvoll has long experience in designing hybrid propulsion systems optimised for the operation profile of the vessel", Tennøy continues. "Gollenes" will be equipped with a Brunvoll hybrid propulsion system.
In addition there are further two signed contracts, just awaiting some clarifications before public anouncement.
