    Pella shipyard (Leningrad Region) delivers longliner of Project PL-475 to its Norwegian customer (photo)

    Longline fishing boat of Project PL-475 designed and built by Pella shipyard (Leningrad Region) has been delivered to the customer, Norwegian fishing company Keltic AS, says the shipyard. The ice-class fishing vessel is intended for long line catching of bottom fishes in the Barents seas and in Northern Atlantic area.

    Main technical data: Length – 47.5 m; Width - 12 m; Draught max – 5.88 m; Speed – 12.5 knots; Crew - 20 persons; Endurance – 25 days; Range – 6,000 nm; Capacity of cargo freezing hold – 462 m3; Class notation - КМ   Ice2 AUT1 Fishing Vessel by Russian Maritime Register of Shipping

    The shipyard’s project documentation was developed on a par with the best international practices in designing, construction and operation of state-of-the-art longliners. Design department of Pella shipyard adapted basic design solutions to meet the requirements of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.

    The vessel ensures the most efficient and sustainable fishing and guarantees comfortable and safe conditions for the crew.

    Key advantages of modern longliners:
    •    Fuel consumption per 1 tonne of fish caught is half as much as compared with bottom trawling.
    •    Longliners ensure sustainable fishing while bottom trawl ships destroy the bottom-dwelling communities of cod, haddock, halibut, etc.
    •    Fish caught with longliners is of higher quality as it is not deformed or squeezed like when being gathered into the trawl bag.
    •     Ice-class longliners can be used for sustainable fishery in the Antarctic waters for catching of toothfish, one of the most precious fish worldwide.

    Russia has few state-of-the-art longliners. 95% of fish in the Barents Sea is caught by trawl ships.

    Serial production of longliners is quite promising as they allow for more rational use of biological resources amid tougher environmental requirements worldwide.

    With her high automation level (AUT 1 according to Russian Maritime Register of Shipping) the ship can be operated by one person from a wheel house without engine-room watch. Apart from the crew of 16 persons the ship can accommodate 4 scientists.

    Central control room in the wheel house will have all navigation, fish-detecting and radio-communication equipment, as well as automation, signaling and video devices. All the mechanisms onboard the vessel comply with the requirements of Russian Maritime Register of Shipping.

    Two Palfinger cargo cranes will be installed on the upper deck for cargo operations.

    The longliner’s fishing gear supplied by Mustad (Norway) is about 30 km long and numbers 57 hooks.

    Leningrad Shipyard Pella was founded in 1950 and privatized in 1992. The holding incorporates a head company and a number of subsidiaries. The shipyard specializes in construction of tug boats for Russian customers.
