Maggiolo Launches Anchovy Catcher for Exalmar

Pesquera Exalmar, one of the major fish meal and fish oil producers in Peru, has acquired a new anchovy seiner from Construcciones Augusto Maggiolo, an 80-year-old shipyard in Callao. The newbuild replaces F/V Nueva San Telmo, an older vessel that was lost at sea in 2020. According to Nicola Rubini, Maggiolo’s general manager, the entire concept of F/V Mariangella – which takes over Nueva San Telmo’s fishing permit – came from the shipyard’s team. ‘Exalmar asked us to develop a vessel with a high level of comfort for the crew and a modern design,’ he explained. Maggiolo’s engineers came up with an audacious configuration for the waterline and bulbs, which had been submitted to tests at the University of Chile, in Valdivia. They also selected an advanced propulsion system for F/V Mariangella, taking care of the propeller design themselves. Photos, >click to read< 17:40
