Full electric driven en controlled fishing system
In co-operation with company VCU (Visserij Coöperatie Urk) Dromec designed and produced a full electric driven en controlled fishing system for 2 new build fishing vessels (LT-60 & LT-43). Besides all winches and fishnet reels used during Flyshoot and Twinrig fishing, Dromec also produced all the controls, software, graphic MMI (Man Machine Interface) and control panels. The prefered fishing procedure can be chosen on the touchscreen and handeling of the system can be done by two industrial joysticks. During pay out or pull in of the nets, the displays shows realtime length, position and force information by graphic animation. During the fishing proces, the control system watch over the lineforce and speed based on pre-set values and is capable of correct these if needed. Because of this realtime monitoring, damage on nets and lines will be avoided and position of the nets can be optimized for a maximum catch.
