Construction of two crab catchers and a trawler will be financed by VTB in Kolyma

VTB will finance the construction of two crab catchers for the largest fishing enterprise in the Magadan Region - Morskoy Volk Group of Companies. The agreement on the parties was signed at EEF-2021.

According to the press service of VTB, medium-tonnage fishing vessels and a new freezer trawler will operate in the North Pacific Ocean with adjacent seas. Crab catchers with a capacity of one thousand tons each have already been laid down at the Khabarovsk shipyard. With their help, the company will master the catch quotas won at the auctions. They are designed for fishing for crab, shrimp and fish, storing the catch in chilled sea water and transporting live seafood to the port.

In addition, the new 96 m long trawler will be able to catch and process up to 450 tons of herring and other fish per day. The company's total investment in the modernization of its own fleet exceeds seven billion rubles.

 The agreement for EEF-2021 was signed by Denis Bortnikov, VTB Deputy President and Chairman of the Management Board, and Mikhail Kotov, General Director of Mag-Sea International LLC (part of Morskoy Volk Group of Companies).

As Denis Bortnikov noted, the food and fish industries are one of the key industries in the Far East, and therefore the bank is ready to develop cooperation in these areas. The volume of loans provided to the Far Eastern enterprises of the fishing industry in the segment of medium and small businesses exceeded 30 billion rubles.

According to Mikhail Kotov, the new vessels will provide not only high quality products, but also the comfort and safety of the crew, which is very important for the difficult work of fishermen. Also, thanks to waste-free technologies, the ships will achieve environmental friendliness of production. The crab catchers will be ready in 2-2,5 years.
