Commercial fishing looks a little different than it did a century ago – and few companies know that better than Hampidjan, the trawler equipment supplier founded in 1934. Originally a manufacturer of nets, ropes, and long lines for fishing fleets based in its native Iceland, Hampidjan has evolved into one of the world’s largest makers of fishing gear and high-tech ropes, with sites on four continents.
1. Greater efficiency and productivity
2. Longer lifetime for greater cost savings
3. Easier trawling at the surface
4. Improved safety
5. Minimal maintenance and superior handling
Not buying wire for six years, making substantial fuel savings, and seeing better fishing is what’s called a hat-trick in soccer! Our comparisons show DynIce® Warps enable a 7.5% reduction in fuel consumption, which translates into a 360,000-liter saving over the 300 days we spend at sea every year.
