On 2 June 2020, Nakhodka Ship Repair Yard JSC (NSRY, Nakhodka Primorsky Territory) laid down a series of eight crab catching ships which are to be built for five years under the investment quota programme, says press center of the Primorsky Territory.

According to Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister - Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Far Eastern Federal District, it is a milestone event for both the Far East and the entire country. Modern Russia has not yet seen the construction of such a big series of ships intended for operation in the Far East and in the North-West of the country.

The ships intended for catching and transportation of live crab will have Ice2 class and will be deployed for operation in Russia’s Northern and Far Eastern basins. Each ship of the series will have nine tanks for a total of 100 tonnes of live crab. The ships will feature improved seaworthiness and fuel efficiency.
Total gross tonnage of the crab catcher exceeds 1,000 tonnes, its length is 57.7 meters, width – 12.6 meters. The ship will be equipped with a conventional propulsion unit. Endurance - 30 days.
