Vyborg yard launches factory trawler for Arkhangelsk Trawl Fleet
The Vyborg Shipyard has launched the first in a series of factory trawlers being built at the yard for Russian fishing companies under the investment quotas initiative.
The 86 metre overall, 17 metre breadth KMT01 factory vesselâ€™s keel was laid at the yard in May last year and it is the first in a series of four for Arkangelsk Trawl Fleet. These vessels are among the first of a new generation of sophisticated fishing vessels
Barents Sea is designed to operate in northern waters and to be able to process up to 160 tonnes per day, producing fillets, fishmeal and fish oil, and canned products.
With the new trawler in the water at the Vyborg Shipyardâ€™s quayside, the work of fitting it out is continuing.
â€˜I warmly congratulate our partners, everyone who has and will take part in the further construction of this ship,â€™ said the yardâ€™s general director Alexander Sergeevich Solovyov.
â€˜Launching for any ship is the most important stage, the first contact with the environment in which it will operate. Seven feet under the keel and a good job done!â€™
