    Severnaya Verf lays down second processing trawler of Project 170701 for Norebo Holding

    Severnaya Verf shipyard says it has started building the second processing trawler of Project 170701, named Kapitan Geller, for Rybprominvest JSC (a company of Norebo Holding).

    The first ship of the series, Kapitan Sokolov, was laid down on 23 November 2018.

    According to Vladimir Grigoryev, General Director of Rybprominvest JSC, the company is to take the delivery of the ship in the beginning of 2021. Just like the Kapitan Sokolov, the newly laid ship will be deployed for catching codfish and haddock in the North-East Atlantic area.

    Ships of 170701 design provide for the most advanced fishing and processing technologies. The plants 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.

    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.

    Igor Ponomarev, Director General of Severnaya Verf, reminded that two months ago NOREBO and Severnaya Verf signed a contract on construction of four more processing trawlers of Project 170701. Thus, the series has been extended to 10 units, says the shipyard.
     
    “It is the largest series in the latest history of the shipyard. Serial production, which has always been a specialization of Severnaya Verf, will let improve the shipyard’s performance, first of all, labor efficiency, with introduction of advanced construction technologies primarily available for large series”, emphasized Igor Ponomarev.

    The shipyard’s current backlog of civil orders numbers 14 fishing ships including 10 processing trawlers for Norebo (Kapitan Sokolov and Kapitan Geller), three longline factory vessels for Fishing Company “Virma” (Gandvik-1 and Gandvik-2 are under construction with Gandvik-3 to be laid down in late March) 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. 

    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.
