- Yanmar announces the latest innovations to be shown at Aqua Nor on the 15th-18th August in Trondheim, Norway
- A large staff will be on hand to answer questions
- Test the new maneouvering system - take the boats for a spin in the fjord!
Yanmar will be attending Aqua Nor this year at several locations, with Yanmar Norge on stand A1-058, and the net cleaning robot distributor ØSTERBØ MASKIN AS on stand A-021.
Yanmar Norge will be presenting the ever-popular 6AYM, 6HYM, 6CXBM and the 6LY440, a light duty commercial engine.
Morten-Erik Haugen, Sales Manager Commercial High Speed Diesel Engines for Yanmar Norge AS says, “This event offers a great opportunity for potential customers to get up close to the engines and talk directly to the makers. Also for questions & inquiries for the Yanmar Medium speed engines your are welcome at our booth.
We’ll also be giving a free snow blower to everyone who makes a purchase on the stand, an idea which has proved extremely popular at the other shows we’ve attended this year.” Meanwhile at the Martec B-100 Skansen/Marina stand visitors can inspect the NorCraft 1066 SpeedMax fishing vessel, and even take it for a spin. The 10.66M machine features a Yanmar 6CXBM-GT rated at 509hp. Haugen explains, “We are particularly excited about this vessel because next to our engines it is also the public launch of the Martec Joystick DP which our dealer Martec AS has installed. It’s great that potential customers can actually pilot it around in the water to get a feel for what we have to offer.” Also in the marina will be a servicing and personnel boat, the SereCraft S8. Designed for fish farmers, this 7.9M vessel boasts a 370hp Yanmar 6LY2A-UTP engine coupled to a sturdy Yanmar KMH61A gearbox.
Ruben Antvelink, Area Manager, YEU will be the contact person at the show for all matters relating to the remote net cleaner. “This is another highlight for us,” notes Antvelink. “This robot can make a massive difference in fish farm hygiene allowing stocks to thrive and offer the farmer better yields. We’re really looking forward to meeting customers old and new.” To better demonstrate the system’s capabilities, the company is introducing a 3D model of an appropriately kitted out vessel, a 13M NorCraft 1300 WCAT fitted with 2 Yanmar 6CH-WUTE engines rated at 255hp.
The net cleaner can be seen close up at the ØSTERBØ stand, so fish farmers can really scrutinize the latest design and work out the benefits for themselves. Antvelink adds, “Cleanliness at fish farms is more important than ever now. This machine offers a cost-effective and reliable way of achieving this. Only one operator is needed and it works as much as four times faster than conventional models.” END
