The first ST-192 supertrawler in a series of eleven

The 108x21 meter FV “Vladimir Limanov”, successfully delivered from Tersan Shipyard to the Russian Fishery Company (RFC)!

“Vladimir Limanov” has been built at the Tersan Shipyard in Turkey, and the remaining ten vessels in the series are due to be delivered by the Admiralty Shipyard in St Petersburg, with the first pair expected to be commissioned next year.

The new series of trawlers are significantly more efficient that the older vessels they replace, both in terms of production efficiency on board, quality and range of products, and in emissions, designed to emit 50% less CO2 per kilo of catch than the previous generation of factory vessels.

“Vladimir Limanov” will significantly contribute to meet the increasing frozen fillet production at sea demand. She will be the first Russian vessel to start producing high quality pollock surimi.

This new series of trawlers for RFC are purpose-designed, each trawler is having a capacity of around 15,000 tonnes of fully-processed products, including fillets, minced fish and surimi.

As designers of the new generation supertrawlers for RFC, the entire Skipsteknisk staff feels honoured and remains excited to follow FV “Vladimir Limanov” on her maiden voyage to the pristine far eastern waters of Russia!
