    Severnaya Verf will build four more trawlers for Norebo

    Severnaya Verf shipyard shipping company Norebo, one of Russia’s leaders in the industry, agreed on construction of four more processing trawlers of Project 170701. Thus, the series has been extended to 10 units, says the shipyard.

    Under the contract, Severnaya Verf shipyard will build processing trawlers for Akros JSC, Blaf JSC, Roliz LLC and Sakhalin Leasing Fleet JSC (companies of Norebo Holding headed by Aleksandr Isakov). Each ship will cost over RUB 4 billion. They are to be delivered to the customer between 2020 and 2023.

    Ships of 170701 design provide for the most advanced fishing and processing technologies. The plant’s capacity is almost 1,200 tonnes of frozen fish (or 1,020 tonnes of fish and 334 tonnes of fish meal. Besides, storage capacity of the trawler is 95 tonnes of canned fish.

    Aleksandr Isakov said that the trawlers will be deployed for catching pollock and herring in the Far East fishing basin: Okhotsk and Bering seas. He emphasized that Norebo had been implementing the fleet renovation programme from 2017.

    The construction of trawlers of Project 170701 is financed by own resources of Norebo with the financial support of Sberbank of Russia allowing for long investments in upgrading Russia’s fishing fleet.

    According to Igor Ponomarev, Director General of Severnaya Verf, “The shipyard is interested in large series of ships numbering 6-10 units. That ensures optimization of expenses for designing, construction, procurement of equipment”, he said. 

    Severnaya Verf shipyard has signed contracts for construction of six fishing ships, processing/freezing trawlers, for the companies of Norebo Holding (Rybprominvest JSC, Karat-1 JSC, Alternative JSC Karelian Seafood JSC and Murmansk Region Fleet JSC). The Project designer is the Icelandic company Nautic. 

    With this new contract, the shipyard’s backlog of civil orders numbers 14 fishing ships including 10 processing trawlers for Norebo, three longline factory vessels for Fishing Company “Virma” and one longline factory ship for Globus LLC. According to the Russian legislation, works and services of domestic companies should make at least 30% of fishing ships’ construction cost. 

    The company has also started steel cutting for the second trawler ordered by Norebo (the first one, the Kapitan Sokolov, was laid down on 23 November 2018).

    Key characteristics of 170701 ship: length – 81.6 m, width - 16 m, speed - 15 knots, displacement – 5,500 t, main engine power – 6.2 MW, total production capacity - 150 tonnes of fish per day, freezing capacity - 100 tonnes of fish per day, crew – 70-80.

The company was founded on November 14, 1912, as Putilovskaya Shipyard. Since then the shipbuilding company has built more than 600 warships and commercial vessels, including cruisers, destroyers, minesweepers, patrol vessels and submarines destroyers, research and passenger vessels, timber cargo carriers, trawlers, container ships and Ro-Ro vessels, tugboats and floating docks.
