Research LK 62 - First Scottish pelagic vessel featuring electric-drive deck machinery

Research is also the first vessel in the world equipped with electric fish pumps, supplied - together with the deck machinery - by MacGregor company Rapp Marine.

Shetland Research marks new ground for Scottish Pelagic fleet

Three remote-controlled Triplex MacGregor hydraulic deck-cranes are also fitted. Two are positioned atop the trawl gantry; one is a net stacker crane for general gear-handling duities, while the second crane is dedicated to the handling of the fish pump.

Congratulations to Owners Research Fishing Company Ltd. with Skipper Gary and Richard Williamson and crew with the new Vessel!

A notable first for Rapp Marine
