Unique catcher-processor to be built to Wärtsilä design

The Wärtsilä technology group is providing the design for a unique catcher-processor vessel to be built at the Yantar shipyard in Kaliningrad, and which will operate in the Russian Far East. This vessel will be capable of fishing for its own production as well as taking catches from other vessels.

The order has been placed with Wärtsilä via its Russian entity Wärtsilä Vostok LLC and the customer is the VI Lenin Collective Farm, which is currently constructing a number of pelagic vessels at the Yantar yard for Far East fisheries.

‘We have had positive collaboration with Wärtsilä during the concept development phase of the project, and we appreciate their support and technical know-how in designing this very modern fishing vessel. It demonstrates innovative thinking and will help in upgrading fishing methods, processing and logistics,’ said Sergey Tarusov, Chairman of the VI Lenin Collective Farm.

This new 121 metre, 5000 cubic metre storage capacity factory vessel will combine capabilities for twin-rig trawling for a variety of demersal species with processing capacity on board, with options to pump catches on board, as well as providing opportunities to take catches from other vessels for processing.

The order was placed this month and delivery is scheduled for 2023 and the vessel is part of the Russian government’s fleet renewal programme.

This new vessel also features a unique bow design that has been developed following extensive computerised fluid dynamic calculation and simulation. The design promises enhanced performance.

‘Agreement has been reached between all parties as a result of our negotiations. This project represents one of the most significant developments for the Russian Federation’s fishing fleet,’ said Ilya Panteleev, Head of Marketing at the Yantar yard.

‘Wärtsilä has a very successful track record in designing highly efficient and sustainable fishing vessels, and an impressive reference list to back it up,’ said Wärtsilä Vostok’s managing director Dmitry Firsov.

‘We have worked closely with the yard and owner to deliver a very extensive design package that meets the specific operational requirements.’
