Armon "a new face at IceFish

Astilleros Armon is a newcomer to IceFish, making its first appearance there this year to showcase its series of new deliveries, including freezer trawler Ramoen.

"This year we have decided to take part in IceFish in Reykjavik mainly due to the increased demand  from Icelandic and North Atlantic clients for quotations for the newbuilding of fishing vessels," said the yard's sales director Ricardo Garcia.

"As fuel prices have stabilised, there seems to be a growing confidence in the market for commitment to new vessels."

With four shipbuilding and repair locations across northern Spain, Astilleros Armon is among Spain's leading shipyards with track record going back decades of building a huge variety of fishing vessels ranging from relatively small boats to large trawlers and tuna purse seiners, as well as complex processing vessels and sophisticated marine research ships that are densely packed with technology.

The latest delivery was the Rolls-Royce-designed factory trawler Ramoen, delivered to its Norwegian owners at the end of last year to target groundfish in the Barents Sea. It also has the first seagoing Valka X-ray portioning machine on board, making Ramoen a pioneer in taking processing at sea to a new level.

"We come from the fishing industry and the yard has built more than 550 fishing vessels in forty years," Ricardo Garcia said.

"We also have plenty of experience of building for the offshore market, so we are used to building to Nordic standards."
