Ramoen Unveil New Trawler


ramoen-celebrationAfter 2 years of planning, design and build, the new Ramoen trawler was presented at an official naming ceremony in Alesund, Norway on Saturday 29th October 2016.  The new vessel represents a £32million investment, and will be the sixth trawler to bear the Ramoen name since the very first Ramoen was built in 1912.

Designed & equipped by Rolls Royce, and built by the Astilleros Armon Gijon shipyard in Spain, the new trawler carries a tailor-made processing line to ensure the freshest, whitest fillets possible; state of the art x-ray cutting technology to offer precision graded fillets, loins and portions; and is also equipped to carry out valuable marine research.  In addition to this, the Ramoen has been design with strong consideration for minimizing its environmental impact by combining diesel and electric propulsion, as well as on board fishmeal & fish oil production facilities that ensure 100% of every fish is utilized.

After attending the official naming ceremony, Smales Chief Executive Lee Smales said “It is a privilege to be here for this ceremony and see the stunning new trawler that Ramoen have built.  The careful planning and technology that has been invested in, demonstrates Ramoen’s commitment to producing the finest quality fillets for the UK market, as well as being mindful of making the trawler and it’s production as environmentally friendly as possible.  Our two companies have been trading for many decades and we are looking forward to delivering new Ramoen fillets to our customers across the UK.”
