Aderco Sizes up the Fishing Industry
Aderco has responded to an increasing demand from customers in the fishing industry for smaller containers of fuel treatment with the introduction of a new one litre bottle, due to usage and storage restrictions on board.
The Pelagic trawler fleets have been using Aderco in 20 litre pails for diesel marine engine maintenance but there has been a call from compact fishing vessels and passenger boats to provide Aderco 2055G in smaller units. This is down to reduced use because of size and restrictions on storage in smaller vessels.
Andrew Deacy of Engine-Solutions/CorribHydServices, Aderco’s distributor for Ireland, sees this development as the next step in introducing the benefits of fuel treatments into another sector of the shipping industry.
“The introduction of the new one litre bottle came as a result of requests from ship operators and fishing fleets who were unable to store our larger 20 litre pails on their ships. We have always been very responsive to our customers and so the one litre bottle will be offered to vessels that will probably only use 2,000 to 5,000 litres of fuel each year. It is part of our continued partnership with our customers and we will also make the smaller bottles available for use in the agricultural, farming and construction industries.”
Aderco – the world’s leading diesel engine fuel treatment company – has also appointed Andrew Deacy of Engine-Solutions/CorribHydServices Ltd as its new distributor for Ireland.
Ireland has a growing marine industry that includes both Pelagic and inshore fishing vessels that can benefit from Aderco’s increasing development of its world-leading fuel treatment products. With a particular emphasis in the country on the environment, the use of a biodegradable product is of growing interest to Irish industries.
Andrew Deacy sees this new partnership as reaching out to more than just the marine and maritime sectors in Ireland.
“We are delighted to be distributing Aderco’s environmentally friendly fuel treatment products in Ireland and will be supporting increasing calls for fuel treatment products from fishing fleets, marine research ships and cargo vessels. One of the other really key sectors in the country is mining and quarrying and we believe Aderco products can make a significant difference in both performance and economy for diesel engines. Along with the widely recognised Irish farming and agricultural industry, we want to demonstrate that fuel treatment is the best method of ensuring operational excellence.”
Peter Stevenson, Managing Director of Aderco UK, sees this as an excellent partnership to develop the company’s presence in the important Irish market.
“Andrew Deacy will be an excellent representative for Aderco in Ireland and he has extensive knowledge of our customers in the important fishing, mining and agricultural sectors. With an increasing awareness of the environmental concerns in industry, his knowledge and our fuel treatment products, this will be a superb fit.”
