About MLD Trawl Steering System
MLD Trawl Steering System has developed a revolutionary trawl management system that will lift the global trawl fishery into the future. The first systems have been fully developed, delivered and put into operation with very promising results. The design of the system is inspired by aerodynamic developments within the aviation industry and ensures optimal control of the trawl through digitalization, resulting in reduced water resistance, optimal opening and perfect positioning of the trawl, as well as significant fuel savings.
MLD is a technology company that will revolutionize trawling globally, moving it in a greener and more sustainable direction in the coming years. The MLD technology is based on 3 patents, which give the remote-controlled trawl doors (robots) unprecedented flexibility. MLD gives trawlers full control over their trawl during fishing and thus the opportunity to achieve significant fuel savings and efficiency. As the first of its kind in the industry, the trawls also protect the seabed, as the remote-controlled trawl doors avoid bottom contact and thus the destruction of the seabed.
Since the beginning in 2015, MLD has taken an idea, developed the technology across a number of prototypes, into the first generation of commercial products, for which several orders have been received in recent months. The technology has great potential, and MLD has entered a collaboration with DTU Aqua, which will document the benefits of managing and controlling trawl doors over the seabed. This project is supported by the Ministry of the Environment's GUDP funds with DKK 4.5 million and the funding for further growth in the upcoming years is ensured. It is expected that steerable trawl doors will be a requirement in a few years for all trawlers and the development of solutions will become more and more complex.
