Vea – Large as well as small tasks – Hanstholm Skibssmedie solves the problem



Hanstholm Skibssmedie has a good and professional insight to our work, which implies that they always deliver a complete and quality assured piece of work – also when it comes to larger reparations, like our new reactor plant. We gladly recommend Hanstholm Skibssmedie to everyone who needs a stable and professional collaboration where quality is in focus. Thorbjørn (Lastname) - Vea


Hanstholm Skibssmedie has the competences to service and perform tasks on smaller as well as larger vessels. We also work with many different types of vessels for example vessel that does industrial fishing, trawlers and so on. Hanstholm Skibssmedie has worked with Vea since the start of the 1990’s. Vea is a family owned shipping company that has been built up through generations. The shipping company has a range of vessels and there is often family members onboard the different vessels. Vea is one of the biggest vessels that catch trash fish. Because of the large size of the vessels there are several engineers onboard that take care of smaller reparations and service tasks as a part of their daily work. This also means that the vessel collect tasks and arrive to Hanstholm at a planned date where Hanstholm Skibssmedie conduct the necessary work which cannot be taken care of at sea.


Hanstholm Skibssmedie has thereby conducted a wide range of tasks on Vea. However, one of the bigger tasks was when we did a 30.000 hour maintenance check on the main engine as well as installed a new reactor. Hanstholm Skibssmedie at that time did not have concrete experience with installing reactors but Vea had confidence enough in letting us take care of that task. So the vessel arrived in Hanstholm and the work began. The work proceeded painlessly and during the trail sailing as well as the tests we could conclude that the NOX spill from the chimney was reduced with over 90 %. In Norway there is a NOX tax from the state on engines over 1000 HP and Vea’s main engine has 3500 HP. Thereby, the investment could pay off within a few years.


Vea has collaborated with Hanstholm Skibssmedie since 1990 and we have thought all the years had a professional and trusting collaboration. Hanstholm Skibssmedie works stable and very professional with the tasks we get and we always get reasonable prices in relation to the quality we expect and that we get at Hanstholm Ship Smithy.
