Yanmar Europe has delivered its 160th engine for the Nordic region’s fisheries sector.
More than 45 engines, including this one, have already found their way into Norway through the Larsnes Mek. Verksted yard.
This 160th engine, a 2999kW 6EY33W propulsion engine, is part of an order of two, and is being installed on a new Skipskompetanse-designed wellboat ordered by Rostein AS for transporting of salmon and smolt.
In addition to the main medium-speed propulsion engine, Yanmar also delivered two Yanmar 6EY22ALW units for generating reliable electrical power on board.
“Yanmar has always proved to be a strong supplier of stable, reliable power to keep vessels going, even under the toughest conditions,” said Larsnes Mek. Verksted’s CEO Jarle Gunnarstein who has been a Yanmar customer since 1998.
“These engines are economical, clean and long-lasting. We can always call on Yanmar’s extensive technical expertise for service, maintenance, and installation, a high-precision job where sometimes we really have to push the limits of the engine.”
The Norwegian fishing industry is known for its willingness to adapt to the latest technology, according to Eric Tigelaar, department manager of Yanmar Commercial Marine.
“We are very fortunate and grateful to have such strong relationships in Norway. The advanced know-how and capabilities within Norwegian aquaculture and fisheries are extremely important for Yanmar. The Norwegian market challenges and motivates us to find solutions and further develop our marine engines, so that we are able to meet the expectations of our customers not only in Norway, but also worldwide,” he said.
