Robust and competitive solutions, from fishing boats to Live Fish Carriers
Fishing: an essential sector
Fishing is an essential sector for the economy. The records of the FAO bear this out, reflecting significant increases in apparent world fish consumption per capita, which have risen from 9kg in 1961 to more than 20 kg in 2016. All of the sectors of the fish food chain strive to maintain the consumption of this food, source of health and well-being.
Our commitment to fishing
Gefico’s water treatment and purification for drinking are a crucial part of the equipment fitted in hundreds of fishing boats registered under all of the world’s flags. This is a great source of pride for us, as well as an important responsibility and a growing commitment to this industry. Hence we have developed a robust, easy-to-operate and competitive range of solutions, specific to fishing, meeting the particular needs of the sector.
Gefico’s mixed solutions for fishing
Our mixed solutions for fishing combine reverse osmosis equipment with Gefico thermal evaporation units. This makes it possible to leverage the advantages that each technology provides, boosting the ship’s energy efficiency and guaranteeing an uninterrupted and economical water supply. Gefico units guarantee an optimal answer to meet the main needs of water in any fishing vessel, from small boats to large-capacity units such as the case of Live Fish Carriers (LFCs).
