Severnaya Verf starts cutting steel for seventh trawler of Project 170701 for NOREBO Group
Severnaya Verf shipyard says it has started cutting steel for the seventh processing trawler of Project 170701 intended for BLAF JSC (a company of NOREBO Group).
The keel-laying ceremony is scheduled for November with the ship delivery expected in two years.
According to the statement, it is the first of four trawlers of the series intended for operation in the Far East Basin. The ship’s design foresees a production capacity of up to 230 tonnes per day.
According to Pavel Kosolapov, Technical Director of Norebo, design concept of the trawler was developed in Iceland but all project documentation was developed ‘from scratch’ by domestic engineers and designers.
Norebo is to invest up to RUB 38.4 billion in construction of 10 processing trawlers. The series is intended for bottom and pelagic trawling, processing and storage of fish. The ships’ multifunctional fish processing plants are intended for production of fillet, minced fish, fish liver and fish flower.
On 31 August 2020 Severnaya Verf shipyard launched the lead processing trawler of Project 170701, Kapitan Sokolov ordered by NOREBO Group’s Rybprominvest.
