The Celiktrans Shipyard will be taking at IceFish 2020, the yard’s third time at the exhibition, and business development manager Volkan Urun is no stranger to Iceland.

Celiktrans has a track record of building for Iceland, having delivered three fresher trawlers operated from Reykjavík by Brim, as well as pelagic vessels.


Víkingur and Venus were built for Brim, while Ísfélag’s Sigurður and Síldarvinnslan’s Börkur were acquired from their original Norwegian owners.


“There are now four purse seiner-pelagic trawlers built at our yard with a combined tank capacity of 11,500m3  that are fishing in Iceland,” said Volkan Urun.
“This shows clearly what we are capable of delivering.”

He added that they see the Nordic region as one with a great deal of potential, which is one of the reasons for participating in IceFish again.
“Every exhibition is exciting for us,” he said.

“Every time I go to Iceland, I go salmon fishing or sea fishing, and sometimes I don’t catch anything – but I always enjoy it. It’s the same with the exhibition, sometimes there’s an order and sometimes not, but we always enjoy meeting customers and potential customers at IceFish.”
