    The lead ship of Project СТ-192, Kapitan Vdovichenko, was laid down on 23 January 2019 and launched on 27 March 2020.

    The serial factory freezer trawlers are being built under the state incentive programme: extra fishing quota in exchange for investments in newbuilds ('quota-per-keel' principle).

    Key characteristic of СТ-192 design: LOA: 108.20 m, BOA: 21.0 m, depth: 11.55 m; maximum draft: 8.35 m; displacement (loaded): 11,873 t, ice class - ICE 1 A; designed speed: 15 knots; main propulsion engine: 8,120 kW; crew: 40; plant personnel: up to 99.

Its primary commercial fishing grounds are in the Bering Sea and The Sea of Okhotsk, some of the cleanest oceanic areas of the entire globe.
