IN BRIEF - Twins together in the dock

NETHERLANDS
Tuesday, April 23, 2024

STELLENDAM - The sister ships BL 936072 'Madeleine' and BL 937550 'Pax Dei II' together in the dock of Padmos in the Inner Harbor of Stellendam. 

The identical cutters under the French flag were built by main contractor Padmos and put into service at the beginning of 2021 and in the summer of 2022 by the De Boer families from Urk and Wattez from France. The skippers of both vessels are the cousins ??of the same name, Teunis de Boer. The first vessel in this series was also for the T. de Boer & Zonen family: the UK 124, also skippered by Teunis de Boer.

A joint docking was planned for next month, but now the dock occupancy has been exchanged with the UK 224, which is undergoing a major refit including repowering at Padmos.

Last week we steamed again to the French home port of Boulogne. The ships fish almost exclusively in the Channel. Due to the strong wind, the majority of the fleet stayed ashore on Monday.

The portfolio companies include the ozone and oxygen specialist Redox; feed analytics company Spillfree Analytics; the software player Seaqloud; Tempia, which supplies refrigeration technology solutions; the inspection and certification specialist Akvasafe AS; as well as Bio Marine, which, among other things, supplies oxygen and light systems for fish farming.
