Yarn-on-Yarn test


Abrasion resistance test


Breakage strength test


Because each manufacturer has their own product specification during Akvaservis independent rope test, several variables are considered such as:

  • Rope diameter,
  • Weight per meter,
  • Quality of fibre,
  • Quality of rope impregnation,
  • Expected minimum as per manufactures specification and maximum actual achieved breaking strength,
  • Rope elongation and elasticity.

Gear Research & Development

Trawl simulator

AKVASERVIS use Computer-aided design (CAD) and trawl simulators to assist in early process of gear design creation, modification, overall estimated performance analysis and optimization of gear design prior any physical construction.


Flume Tank

AKVASERVIS often use scale-models to perform gear tests. Tests are carried out in the North Sea Centre in Hirtshals, Denmark (operated by the Norwegian Institute SINTEF).

Flume tank test enhanced understanding of trawl performance in practice, both from a gear-engineering and a vessel-management point of view. AKVASERVIS clients have solid understanding of their actual gear performance. They also have practical information in areas such as catch efficiency, fuel consumption, bottom impact, target species and size selectivity.

At the facility alterations to the gear and its impact to other areas of the gear can be easily studied. Also, the flume tank test support further gear development.

Underwater Video Recording


AKVASERVIS often makes use of underwater video cameras to transmit trawl images during actual fishing process. Rather than simply observe the trawl in artificial flume tank, realistic video contributes to the better understanding and assessment of trawl performance which then leads to further gear development.

Real practice tested products


AKVASERVIS uses its existing long term clients to test trawls in different types of seas catching various fishes with different vessels sizes. Only after practical gear approval and feedback we recommend and promote our trawls to other/new clients.
