Saint-Petersburg based Severnaya Verf shipyard says it launched the third processing trawler of Project 170701 on 16 September 2021.

The ship is intended for Karelian Seafood JSC (a company of NOREBO group). The delivery is scheduled for 2022.

Following the launching the ship named Kapitan Ostashkov will undergo outfitting.

“It is the third ship in a series of ten vessels and we see the shipbuilder’s competence growing with each new ship”, said Sergey Sennikov, Deputy Director of MC NOREBO.

Igor Orlov, General Director of Severnaya Verf, emphasized in his turn that the third trawler launched is the serial ship. “The ship is unique and interesting with all those challenges appropriate for the Severnaya Verf level and its capabilities in terms of implementation of such projects”.

The series of sea-going processing trawlers built by the shipyard for NOREBO will number 10 units. Six ships of the series are intended for operation in the Northern Basin, four ships – in the Far East Basin.

For the first time for Russian fishing vessels, a new hull architecture was applied - a capsule-shaped bow shape with an Enduro Bow tip. Thanks to this, the area of ​​the working space on board has increased and the seaworthiness has improved.
