Work starts on fourth Norebo Kapitan trawler

The Severnaya (Northern) Shipyard in St Petersburg has begun cutting steel for the fourth in the series of Nautic Rus-designed trawlers for fishing company Norebo.

This fourth trawler’s keel-laying ceremony will take place in November, with completion scheduled for 2022. There are ten trawlers altogether in the Norebo series of 81.60 by 16 metre vessels with the designer’s distinctive EnduroBow arrangement.

Alfreð Tulinius of Nautic Rus was at the yard as the first plates were cut, and monitors with interest progress on the three vessels already at varying stages of construction, starting with lead trawler Kapitan Sokolov, and followed by Kapitan Geller and Kapitan Ostashkov.

The Kapitan Sokolov series of trawlers are designed to have 6200kW main engines and to have capacity to process 150 tonnes of fish per day, with 100 tonne/day freezing capacity as well as canning, fishmeal and fish oil production on board.

The Severnaya yard currently has fourteen fishing vessels under construction, with the ten Norebo trawlers, plus freezer longliners Gandvik-1, Gandvik-2 and Gandvik-3 for RK Virma and Marlin for LLC Globus.
