Russia’s Vyborg Shipyard has floated out a new freezer trawler slated for local fishing company Arkhangelsk Trawl Fleet.

Karskoye More (“Kara Sea”) will be the fourth Project KMT01 freezer trawler to be built for the same owner. The first two vessels have already been delivered while the third is undergoing final outfitting.

Upon completion, the 86-metre ice-class vessel will have a fish factory equipped with an automatic palletising system for added efficiency in handling and offloading catch.
