St Petersburg shipyard Severnaya Verf (Northern Shipyard) has started cutting steel for the fifth in the series of new trawlers being built for Norebo Group.
This trawler is expected to be delivered to its owners in 2022, and is one of the series of ten ordered by Norebo, with six intended for northern waters and four for the Far Eastern region’s fisheries.
These 81.60 metre LOA, 16 metre breadth trawlers are designed for demersal and pelagic fishing, and with factory decks capable of producing fillets, H&G, canned goods, fishmeal and fish oil.
The 6200kW trawlers are planned to have a catch throughput rate of 150 tonnes per day, with a 100 tonne/day freezing capacity. Accommodation is for a crew of 80 on each trawler.
Severnaya Verf currently has 14 fishing vessels under construction. In addition to the ten trawlers for Norebo, the yard has four Marin Teknikk-designed longliners in build, the first of which was launched in December last year.
