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 which produces high quality stainless steel furnitures for galleys and laundries for marine use as well as handles turn key projects. Hence, Pronomar and Ünoks teamed up to design a professional drying room inside the crab catcher. Multiple dryers were installed to ensure employees no longer suffer from wet jackets, trousers, boots and gloves.

Working in wet and cold clothing is a very frequent problem on-board many vessels due to stormy and rainy weather. Additionally, low temperatures can result in many negative physical and social consequences for those processing the caught crab in the cold storage rooms. Therefore, providing warm and dry clothing definitely leads to a more motivated and healthier workforce.

Pronomar is beyond grateful for this successful collaboration with Ünoks and is looking forward to further common projects.
