Freezer Trawler Maartje Theadora Reels in Quality with Naust Marine

Naust Marine recently delivered its Electrical Spooling Gear (ESG) system with controls and touch screen to German freezer trawler Maartje Theadora. With its length of 140.80 meters and width of 18.68 meters and a displacement of 9436 tdw, it is considered the largest fishing vessel in Europe.  

The vessel was built in 2000, and is mainly used for pelagic fishing and sails for Westbank HochseeFischerei GmbH, a subsidiary of the Dutch fishing group Parlevliet & Van der Plas B.V. 

Naust Marine’s ESG solution will ensure safe and reliable reeling and will be a good addition to the deck machinery already onboard. The Maartje Theadora will experience superior reeling by allowing the wheelhouse to easily adjust speed, for different diameters of rope/wire to ensure consistent reeling. 

This Electrical Spooling Gear (ESG) system was delivered as a stand-alone package which can easily fit the winch type onboard with minimum modification.
