The construction of the modern crab catcher “Russian Crab”
At the Onega Shipbuilding and Shiprepairing Plant in Petrozavodsk, metal cutting was begun for the first crab-cattle carrier of the Russian Crab Group. The new fleet will comprise seven ships of project 5712LS. Moreover, each of them will be able to catch and transport live crab twice as much as is possible on ships of the operating fleet. The factory also began to manufacture sections of the body.
According to the press service of the Russian Crab Group, the entire series of vessels will be equipped with modern equipment, including tanks for storing live crab with a capacity of up to 120 tons and an innovative scheme for unloading live products at low temperatures. In addition, the project provides for an enlarged open deck for a large supply of traps and ridges, as well as a comfortable, spacious residential block.
The design of the crab boat was developed by the St. Petersburg company Damen Engineering together with specialists from the Russian Crab group of companies.
Dmitry Trubnikov, General Director of the Russian Crab Group, said that the construction of the first of the series of crab catchers started within the framework of the schedule stipulated by the contract. He expressed confidence that the interest in the project, the professionalism of the partners and the technological readiness of the Onega shipbuilding and ship repair plant will systematically replace the existing fleet with modern ships, increase the efficiency of quota development and working conditions for the crew.
The commissioning of the first crab-cattle carrier is scheduled for operation in 2022. Vessels will be operated in the basins of the Sea of Okhotsk and the Bering Sea.
