Development of an energy saving trawl (39029)

Project Details

Description

The aim of the project was to test and document the reduced drag in a novel trawl design made by Herman Trawl. Detailed testing and drag measurements was conducting at the flumetank in Hirtshals where the new designs measurements were compared with similar drag measurements of a standard trawl of similar size.

The developed design demonstrated a relative large reduction in drag compared to similar sized standard gears. The specific effect was documented at different towing speeds. All measurements were made on scale models.

This project was coordinated by DTU Aqua and funded by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation.
