Svend C at MEST Shipyard for Pit-Stop maintenance

Time is of essence for the fishing industry – and a vessel like Svend C has only a few days during the year allocated for repair work. 

MEST therefore welcomed the opportunity to undertake some intensive work over a long week-end – 10-15 September.  


Upon arrival at the quayside in Tórshavn, Faroe Islands, intensive repair work was done, including: 

  • Factory area: where extensive electrical work was undertaken as well as steel- and machinery work and plastic welding. 
  • Deck area: where service maintenance and repair work was undertaken on the Seaonics cranes and Seaonics electrical-winches. 
  • Engine room: maintenance  work including some steel work 
  • Fire extinguishing System: Inspection and certification of fire extinguishers 


Svend C is a 83,5 metres advanced long Stern Freezer Trawler owned by Sikuaq Trawl A/S in Nuuk, Greenland.
