Russian Fishery Company has taken delivery of the first unit in a new series of 11 factory trawlers designed by Norway’s Skipsteknisk.
Delivered by Turkey’s Tersan Shipyard, Vladimir Limanov is also the only vessel in the Project ST192 series to be built outside of Russia. The remaining ten vessels will be completed by Admiralty Shipyard in Saint Petersburg.
Skipsteknisk claims the trawler is designed to emit 50 per cent less CO2 per kilogram of catch compared to previous generations of factory vessels.
The vessel will be capable of frozen fillet production at sea. It will also be the first Russian-flagged vessel capable of producing high-quality pollock surimi.
As with all Project ST192 vessels, Vladimir Limanov has capacity for around 15,000 tonnes of fully-processed products including fillets, minced fish, and surimi.
