Morgère, has successfully completed the move to a new purpose-built manufacturing facility in nearby Miniac-Morven
Leading trawl door manufacturer, Morgère, has successfully completed the move from its historic base in Saint Malo, Brittany, to a new purpose-built manufacturing facility in nearby Miniac-Morven.
The move to the new 2,500m² facility will enable Morgère’s skilled engineers to utilise the most modern production techniques for its successful range of trawl doors and other fishing equipment, benefiting customers all over the world. The new, larger production unit also offers better storage and more efficient production line management.
Established in 1902, Morgère designs and manufactures a wide range of trawl doors and associated equipment suitable for demersal, semi-pelagic and pelagic fishing. Trawl doors in the range include the versatile Exocet and Osprey. The Exocet, which is successfully used by demersal fishermen around the world, has a lower angle of attack compared with a standard door while maintaining the same spread, which results in reduced drag that benefits fuel efficiency. Exocet is powerful and easy to operate.
The Osprey semi-pelagic trawl door system fishes on and just off the seabed and delivers excellent results for fishermen.
The key to the success of Morgère has been the intensive and sophisticated research work behind the design and development of their trawl doors. This includes the use of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) research focusing on the hydrodynamics of the new trawl door design to optimise performance.
Pascal Reverseau, managing director for Morgère, said: “The team at Morgère are delighted at this major investment in our new production facility, which will bring immense benefits to our growing number of customers. We have a long tradition of supplying high-performing trawl doors and other fishing equipment, and the Miniac-Morven facility provides an exciting opportunity for new growth.”
