At the Admiralty Shipyards in St. Petersburg, metal cutting began for the fourth super trawler of the Russian Fishery Company (RRPK) from a series of large freezing trawlers. It is planned that the keel of the vessel will be laid on the slipway in August next year, and put into operation in 2022 year.

“We have received yet another clear confirmation that a large-scale, technologically complex, new project for the Russian shipyard is being implemented in compliance with the planned timelines. The modern and highly efficient fleet of the RRPK takes shape, and the shipbuilders of the Admiralty shipyards, with the support of our company’s specialists, gain unique experience in the field of civil shipbuilding, ”said Viktor Litvinenko, Director General of the RRPK.

A series of ten ships will begin to be commissioned from 2021 year. They are built in pairs, two vessels a year with an interval of three months between laying and breaks about a year between the pairs. Construction is under the state program of investment quotas. The total investment exceeds 65 billion rubles.

According to the press service of the RRPK, now the hull of the first vessel is assembled at 90% on the slipway of the Admiralty Shipyards, the second - at 55%. The overall readiness of the first two vessels is of the order of 40% and 30%, respectively. The installation of basic equipment and systems on the first vessel is already underway; preparations are underway for installation on the second. The launch of the first pair of super trawlers on water is scheduled for the spring of 2020.

Each vessel is designed for an annual catch of about 60 thousand tons of fish - this is twice the productivity of the vessels that make up the fleet of the RRPK and many other Russian companies today. The ships are equipped with a modern factory for the deep non-waste processing of catch into high value-added products. The capacity of such a factory is more than doubled in comparison with analogues.
