YANMAR ENGINE DRIVES NEW EYE-CATCHER IN NORWEGIAN WATERS
The new deep-sea fishing vessel “Remøybuen” owned by Hans Sigvald Remøy of Remøybuen A.S. in Norway, sets a new standard as one of the smallest boats with electric winches on board. In July, the ‘eye-catcher’ was ready to hit the Norwegian fishing fields with an eco-friendly, all-electric wind system and a YANMAR engine that is both environmentally friendly and affordable to operate.
The engine operates a large four-wing propeller with a diameter of 2.70 meters and offers a lot of gearing. “And that you can tell”, says ship owner Hans Sigvald Remøy. “From the first selection of the engine to the entire installation process, I am completely satisfied, not only with the performance of the engine, but also with the whole team of YANMAR and Maritim Motor, YANMAR’s dealer in Norway.”
Life Cycle Value and Environment Performance
The YANMAR 6EY17W engine is part of YANMAR’s EY series of medium speed propulsion engines. These engines are built with unique technology based on long history and reflect the concepts of ‘Increased Life Cycle Value’ and ‘Environmental Performance’, with such things as Long Life parts, easy maintenance and low NOx/CO2/SOx emissions. This significantly reduces the total cost of ownership throughout the engine’s entire life.
