Nordic Engineering and Dalryba will cooperate in designing sea-going crab-boat
Nordic Engineering JSC and Dalryba PJSC have signed an agreement on cooperation in designing a sea-going crab-boat. IAA PortNews correspondent says the document has been signed today, on 14 September 2017, at the Global Fishery Forum & Seafood Expo in Saint-Petersburg by Vitaly Gvozdev, Director General of Nordic Engineering, and Vladimir Bud’ko, Deputy Director General of Dalryba, in the presence of Peotr Savchuk, Deputy Head of the Federal Fishery Agency.
Crab catching company Dalryba has its own fishing fleet and is interested in its renovation through applying the mechanisms of state support.
In October 2015, when chairing a State Council Presidium meeting on developing Russia’s fisheries industry, Vladimir Putin set a task to introduce a mechanism of support to fishing companies, particularly through providing quotas for catching aquatic biological resources with obligatory renovation of their fishing fleet.
Nordic Engineering will provide the customer with information about Russian shipyards which can be involved in construction of such ships, taking into consideration the shipyard’s technological facilities and loading.
Upon completion of designing the parties will discuss commercial issues and sign a contract for development of the project’s technical documentation.
The fleet of Dalryba numbers five vessels. Operating in different areas of the Far East Basin they annually catch up to 22,000 t of fish and marine products (including Pollack, herring, flat fish, calmar, salmon, shrimp and crab). Product output is about 17,500 t.
Russian designing company Nordic Engineering is founded by a Nordic Yards Holding GmbH (Germany).
