Catching Crabs in Dry and Warm Fishing Gear

Two years ago, a crab harvest fishing vessel was built by Tersan Shipyards for the leading Russian fishing company JSC Arcticservice, which has been active on Russian waters for quite some time. This fishing vessel was built with the main purpose of catching crabs in up to 400m water depths, but it can also process the catch on board. Following the catch, crabs are frozen and stored in a separate cold storage room. Due to occasional harsh weather conditions and rather low temperatures in the cold storage room, Pronomar collaborated with Ünoks Industrial Stainless Steel Equipments to equip this vessel with an efficient drying room solution for the crew’s workwear. Ünoks is one of the leading companies in its sector

The same applies to construction and civil engineering workers, since these jobs also include tough open-air activities.

Efficiently Drying All Types of Fishermen’s Workwear

Pronomar is looking forward to the first edition of the Skipper Expo in Limerick. With their innovative drying systems, Pronomar is witnessing an increasing interest in drying solutions for oil skins, jackets, bibs, boots, gloves and other gear. The drying systems, established from stainless steel 304 or 316, ensure a fast and internal drying of clothing by using a powerful warm-air blower. A large amount of air flows through the continuous stainless steel framework and is distributed directly into the clothing, reaching all areas from the arm pits to the tips of the boots and reducing unpleasant odors caused by bacteria growing in moist environments.

The MERUS Water Treatment Proves Successful in Hotel Industry

Many hotels deal with lime scale in their boilers, kitchen equipment, swimming pools, saunas and of course on the sanitary ware in the bathrooms. This could have a negative impact on the hotel customer experience, therefore everything needs to be done to keep the facilities clean and lime scale free. Recently, the Dutch Hotel Arena and QO Hotel both saw opportunities in using Pronomar’s MERUS water treatment to reduce lime deposits inside waterlines and other water-bearing systems. After installing the MERUS rings, the water treatment gives off an overlapping molecular frequency to the water, which slows the scaling process and keeps the deposits longer in suspension. With the MERUS water treatment hotel businesses are able to reduce their expenditures on

Sustainably Withstanding Water Obstacles With Merus Rings on the VOS Stone

Following successful installation on board ‘VOS Start’, Vroon contracted Pronomar to equip sister newbuild vessel, ‘VOS Stone’, with the Merus technology. These two subsea-support walk-to-work units were purpose built for Vroon, to support offshore operations and walk-to-work (W2W) projects in today’s Renewable Energy and Oil & Gas industries. Installation of the professional Merus rings was one of the last steps ‘VOS Stone’ had to undertake, since she was already contracted for offshore logistics activities and W2W support at the Arkona Offshore Windfarm park. On board various vessels and offshore platforms, the Merus ring has proven valuable in counteracting issues with corrosion, scaling and marine growth, such as mussels and barnacles, in pipelines. The technology consists of a treated ring that
