SeaQuest Systems continues to push ahead

Ireland’s leading company for the design & manufacture of deck equipment, SeaQuest Systems continues to push ahead, with deck equipment for Irish & foreign markets proving to be more & more popular within the fishing & aquaculture sectors.

Currently in production at the Killybegs based factory, are a number of projects for Ireland, the UK, Turkey, Faroe Islands, Denmark and Oman. Recently expanding production capabilitiesboth in terms of building & machineryhas allowed SeaQuest to build ever bigger equipment, as seen on MV Grip Arctic during 2019 with the crane delivered measuring in at 25m in length.

Already, 2020 has proven extremely busy for the company, with the final assembly well underway on equipment for the next vessel to be completed at Mooney boats for the Atlantic Dawn Group. The MFV Ella is to receive a full SeaQuest Systems deck machinery & hydraulic package, including winches, net drums, Powerblock crane, hydraulic systems, along with SeaQuest hose reels & 14-inch fish pump.

Alongside this, are packages, also for the Atlantic Dawn Group, to be delivered to Cemre Marin in Turkey. These new vessels will be supplied with SeaQuest cranes, hose reels, 24-inch fish pumps, and hydraulic systems.

MFV Finnur Fridi is to receive delivery in the coming months of a new SeaQuest Powerblock crane. As usual with SeaQuest Cranes, sections of the cranes are modified to suit the vessel allowing the maximum usage for the end-user.

Following on from DanFish in October, Karstensens Skibsvaerft has ordered a new Powerblock crane for a refurbishment project on the MFV Stella Nova, (ex. Carmona). At the request of the owners,  this crane will be fitted with a custom-sized Powerblock arrangement.

Some of the future packages to be delivered by SeaQuest Systems include:

–        MFV Antarctic, Karstensens Skibsvaerft, Denmark

–        MFV Gitte Henning, Astilleros Zamakona S.A, Spain

–        NB71, Atlantic Dawn Group, Cemre Marin, Turkey

–        MFV Juvel, Oman
