Another modern trawler for Arkhangelsk fishermen is put afloat
The keel of this Project KMT01 vessel named Beloye More (the White Sea) was laid down in May 2018 at the request of Arkhangelsk Trawl Fleet AO (ATF).
The 17 m wide and 86 m long factory trawler with the state of readiness equal to 40% will be equipped with a state-of-the-art trawl system, as well as a fish processing plant, which will allow to process up to 160 tons of raw fish per day.
The installed equipment will make possible to produce fillets, fish oil, fishmeal and canned food without entering the port. It is expected that the trawler will be delivered to the user in 2022.
The total number of the Project KMT01 vessels ordered by ATF in the shipyards of Vyborg is 4: the Barents Sea, the Norwegian Sea, the White Sea and the Baltic Sea. The first three trawlers are already put afloat: the Barents Sea – in December 2018, the Norwegian Sea – in May 2019, and the White Sea – today.
"Arkhangelsk Trawl Fleet sets a good pace on the implementation of the important policy task. The shipbuilders perform their work qualitatively and in due time. It would be desirable that all the trawlers will be put into operation as soon as possible. I hope that the Barents Sea, which the shipbuilders will deliver to the user during this summer, will decorate the centenary of Arkhangelsk Trawl Fleet", noted Mr Igor Orlov, the Governor of the Arkhangelsk Region
Construction of all four trawlers is carried out under the state programme of investment quotas and the investment project Construction and Acquisition of Fishing Vessels being implemented by ATF, which covers the period of 2018–2021. The total planned volume of investments is more than 16.1 billion roubles.
In accordance with the decision of the Committee for Investment Policy and Development of Competition in the Arkhangelsk Region, this project was included in the register of priority projects of the region.
