… is a successful prawn fisherman based out of Hemmant, Brisbane. His trawler, 45 foot “Betty”, is powered by a new NT855 turbo-charged Cummins engine that was supplied and configured by Torquepower. “I like Cummins engines, they have plenty of low-end torque, and work as hard as I do!“ Torquepower Director, Ken Roberts, explains; “The original engine had overheated and on our advice, Hung’s best option was to replace rather than repair. His … naturally aspirated 14 litre Big Cam Cummins was no longer in production but its perfect replacement was a turbocharged Cummins NT855. It came with a range of spares and specialised tooling – exactly what an offshore fisherman needs.”
Peter Lee, is MD of Lees Fishing in Tan Can Bay.
His fleet of trawlers catch and process fresh King and Tiger prawns, sweet Spanner crabs, Scallops, Sandcrabs, Red Spot Crabs, Moreton Bay bugs and more. Seafood that is landed by the trawlers is processed, graded, packed and frozen at sea and unloaded on fortnightly or monthly cycles from the boats and delivered to the factory at Tin Can Bay. Product is then distributed all over Australia and into overseas markets. Torquepower regularly provides parts and service support for the Cummins marine engines that power Lees Fishing fleet.
