Naust Marine in Iceland has contracted to supply a comprehensive package of deck equipment for the Wärtsilä-designed factory trawler expected to be delivered to RK Lenina in 2023.
The 121-metre Viktor Gavrilov is being built at the Yantar Shipyard in Kaliningrad for RK Lenina, on to the largest fishing companies based in the Russian Far East.
The contract with RK Lenina, worth a reported ISK800 million (€4.8 million), is for the design, manufacture and supply of the complete winch system and associated equipment.
A leading company in its field and a pioneer in electrical trawl winch systems, Naust Marine will be supplying Viktor Gavrilov with a package of 50 winches and an ATW control system.
The full package also includes three trawl winches, two net sounder winches, four net drums and 35 additional winches, as well as the anchoring system, four landing booms and ice gallows, trawl blocks, a stern gate, cranes and other equipment.
Viktor Gavrilov is being built at Yantar under the Russian government’s investment quotas initiative, designed to boost both fishing and shipbuilding sectors by offering fishing companies incentives to build new capacity at domestic shipyards.
