Tersan Shipyard has signed a contract with Russia’s Pacific Fishery Company for a factory freezer trawler with the hull number NB1109.
Pacific Fishery will be the first Magadan-based company to order a super-modern pelagic vessel. At 90.65 metres by 18 metres the ST-119 PFC vessel is designed by Skipsteknisk for trawling Alaska Pollock in the Sea of Okhotsk, as well as herring, mackerel and pollock in the Pacific.
The vessel will be arranged for pelagic and semi-pelagic trawling, using two main trawl winches working in combination with ice trawl gallows and two large pelagic combined sweep line-net drums.
The catch chilling system uses a DeepChill liquid ice system and there will be an advanced pollock factory on board. In addition, pelagic lines will be installed where herring and mackerel will be filleted or round frozen.
The trawler will be capable of freezing 250 tonnes per day and her fishmeal plant has a capacity of 110 tonnes by raw material. The vessel will have accommodation for 111 people and is planned to be delivered in the second quarter of 2023. Tersan Shipyard now has 21 active projects in its order book; two of which will be delivered in 2020.
