Marco is supplying a new MarVac PC-180 fish pump to Newport Fishing Corporation, part of Frabelle Group, and one of the most important shipowners in Philippines.
The new fish pump will be used for fast and safe fish unloading from company’s sardine vessels.
The MarVac PC-180 fish pump, with a pumping flow up to 180 cubic metres and a 30kW power consumption, due to its positive displacement operating principle ensures a continuous fish suction and discharge, thus reducing handling and speeding up operations. The fish pump’s configuration is designed to minimise fish damage as well as ensure cleaner return water.
According to Marco, MarVac fish pumps have been designed to consume less power than conventional fish pumps and are cheaper to install and maintain, making them the best option on the market for fish pumping.
This is the second contract awarded by Frabelle Group to Marco in 2020. Both companies have been collaborating over recent years incorporating different Marco deck and fish equipment on Frabelle’s purse seiners.
