Rapp Marine signs new order with NEW "Odd Lundberg":
This is the third generation of owners from the shipping company Odd Lundberg AS, who have selected deck machinery from Rapp Marine.
- This is the first time the shipping company has selected a high-tech electrical solution, confirms a very pleased Morten Stenkjær, VP Sales at Rapp Marine AS.
The owner’s new pride is a combined ring-net and and pelagic trawler and will be equipped with a complete electric deck machinery solution from Rapp Marine. The new building will be optimized for the company's operation, Stenkjær confirms.
New "Odd Lundberg" follows tomorrow's technology
Mats Lundberg, who together with his younger brother Stian sail on board as Skipper and Chief Engineer, are both fourth generation fishermen in the family-owned shipping company Odd Lundberg AS, whose history dates back to 1918.
The Lundberg brothers tell us that the feedback from their colleagues, who have experience with other types of fishing vessels with electric winches, is that they are smoother in operation and fish better.
- Whether this effect is measurable will become apparent when the vessel is operating, but anyway it is an arrow pointing in the right direction, towards the future, says Mats Lundberg at Odd Lundberg AS.
-In the process of selecting equipment, we felt that Rapp Marine was the supplier that satisfied our requirements and had the most innovative solutions. It can also be said of the previous deliveries; that Rapp Marine has always been the one who has met our demands at a reasonable price, confirms Lundberg.
The new equipment contributes to increased earnings
- The electrical equipment has lower power requirements, and is more efficient, as the conversion to hydraulics has been eliminated. We hope this will reflect on lower fuel consumption and reduction in emissions of harmful gases. With electric winches we will have better utilization of the energy, as we have re-generation of the energy during the shooting / towing phases when fishing. This re-generated energy is returned back into the ship’s electrical distribution system and so reduces the load on the main engine, says Lundberg.
The shipowner company makes demands on service
-It is also reassuring to know that Rapp Marine is continuously working to improve service to its customers, says Lundberg. In our industry, we would rather have help yesterday when a problem arises. Therefore, the 24-hour service phone is very important to us, he continius.
Rapp Marine is a grateful and proud supplier to the shipping company
- We are very grateful that the company Odd Lundberg AS has chosen Rapp Marine as their third generation supplier, and in particular because they chose our electrical system as a solution for the future, says Morten Stenkjær, VP Sales at Rapp Marine AS.
-The latest technology will be used on all the equipment delivered from us aboard this modern vessel built at Karstensen Shipyard in Skagen, he assures.
-Rapp Marine is pleased with the trust Karstensen Shipyard has once again placed with us. Both Rapp Marine and Odd Lundberg AS have collaborated with the shipyard for many years and now we are looking forward to new cooperation with this new flagship, says Stenkjær.
Stenkjær further explains that Rapp's hydraulic deck machinery systems are systems that have been continuously developed over the years in accordance with clear requirements and feedback from the fishing fleet. - When we developed the electrical equipment for the fishing fleet we based the technology on the same experiences, philosophy and reliability that have stood us in good stead over the years, confirms Stenkjær.
Good user solutions that will work
-We think Rapp Marine has come up with a structure and design that will work. Design of the equipment is compact and clear in our perceptions. Servicing of the machinery is easy and easy for everyone to get into. There were some initial challenges as to how the system works and is designed, but Rapp Marine has been willing to listen and we have solved this in common, concludes Mats Lundberg.
About NEW «Odd Lundberg»:
The ship is a combined ring-net and pelagic trawler.
Rigged with both purse seine winches and trawl winches. This is new to the shipping company and will be a major increase in fishing efficiency. It will provide the flexibility to have two uses, both ring-net and trawl.
New "Odd Lundberg" measures 69.99 x 15.20 meters.
Built at Karstensen Shipyard in Skagen and delivered from shipyard in June 2019.
It will be a very efficient vessel with a strong focus on safety. Among other things, the ship includes enclosed working decks giving almost 3 meters of extra free deck space, an enclosed mooring deck and a built-in MOB boat hangar.
The boat will be delivered with an engine adapted to the company's operating profile, with the option of boosting extra power from the auxiliary motors if necessary.
More capacity than today's boat, particularly useful when the vessel is west of Ireland and fishes blue whiting with long lines.
