Growing Icelandic fleet presents opportunities for Danish suppliers
The Icelandic fishing industry is in constant development. Currently, the Icelandic fleet is acquiring and building larger vessels. To meet the demands, Danish suppliers will be showcasing high-quality products and systems at the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition on September 13- 15th.
Acording to Martin Winkel, head of the Danish Fish Tech Group and organiser of the Pavilion of Denmark at Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 2017, Danish companies hold a strong position as suppliers to the global fishing industry and thus can meet the Icelandic demands with many years of experience within technology to the industry.
â€˜Exhibitors at the Pavilion of Denmark will present technologies and innovations for the fishing industry, including equipment for fishing trawlers and vessels, processing equipment as well as shipyards, said Martin Winkel.
Danish Fish Tech Group, part of Danish Export Association, is the largest Danish supplier group to the global fishing, aquaculture and seafood processing industries.
One of the Danish companies exhibiting at Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 2017 is Hirtshals Yard A/S. The company perceives the exhibition as opportunity to gain market knowledge and access to the fishing industry in Iceland and the north Atlantic.
â€˜There is a great market potential in Iceland where the fishing industry is growing rapidly, and the Icelandic fleet acquires more vessels from other countries,â€™ explained Rasmus Brohus, managing director at Hirtshals Yard A/S. â€˜We offer total solutions in ship repairs and bring experience from other North Atlantic countries, such as Scotland, Sweden and Norway. Thus, we can meet the Icelandic demands for sophisticated and high-quality updating.â€™
At Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition 2017, Brdr. Markussens Metalvarefabrik/The Blue Line is presenting hardware and various types of blocks to the commercial fishing industry, including its renowned blocks. The company has been supplying to Iceland for more than forty years.
â€˜The Icelandic fleet is building larger vessels. To keep up with the development, we need to produce larger and stronger equipment. For example, we supply 70 tonne blocks with 1200mm sheaves, which is a 20% size increase. At the same time, we meet the demand for Dyneema ropes by using stainless steel sheaves in all our blocks,â€™ said Preben Nielsen, sales director at Blue Line.
