Aage Hempel Crame secures order for 175 units AIS Class A for the Portuguese fishing fleet.
The order is part of a bigger supply and will be coordinated by Equimar, the Portuguese Sailor Select installer and the APMSHM (Associaçao Pró Maior Segurança dos Homens do Mar) which represents the interests of Portuguese fishing boat owners. In this case, the supply will be directed to vessels 15 mts. LOA and above.
The model and manufacturer of equipment chosen by the fishermen and APMSHM has been Sailor branded once again. In particular, the new 6280 AIS Class A from Sailor-Cobham. CRAME was also responsible for the supply of 324 units VHF 6215 from the same manufacturer in 2011. With this order, the new radio products coming from SAILOR consolidate as a top choice among the Portuguese professional fishing fleet.
Antonio Falcón, AHC´s Area Sales Manager in charge of this negotiation said: “these type and size of initiatives take a very long time for execution as many parts must come to an agreement beforehand: fishermen, government, association, installer, supplier and manufacturer. We are very proud of this order and very thankful to all the members involved for trusting Aage Hempel Crame one more time”.
