    Kaliningrad, Russia based Baltic Shipyard Yantar (member of United Shipbuilding Corporation)  has signed a contract for building a large fishing freezer trawler for Preobrazhensky Base of Trawling Fleet PJSC (Vladivostok). Under the contract signed on 1 December 2017, the trawler is to be delivered to the customer in October 2021. The keel-laying is scheduled for Q4’2018.

    The concept design of the trawler has been developed by Hotchya Marine Engineering. The vessel will have a length of 113 m, width - 21 m, full displacement – about 11,000 t. The vessel will be fitted with fishing equipment, fish processing plant and freezing holds for product storage.

    The contract for construction of three trawler-seiners of Project SK-3101R was signed by the shipyard and Fishing Collective Farm named after V. Lenin (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky) on January 22, 2016. According to the statement, Russia is building a series of fishing vessels of this type for the first time in more than 20 years. The hulls of the second and the third vessels named Udarnik and Komandor are under construction. The series is to be delivered to the customer in 2018.   

    According to the statement, Yantar is the first Russian shipyard to revive construction of fishing ships for domestic customers after a long period of time. The shipyard is currently building a series of three trawler-seiners of Project SK-3101R for Fishing Collective Farm named after V. Lenin (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky). The lead trawler named Leninets was launched on 17 November 2017.

    Kaliningrad-based Baltic Shipbuilding Plant “Yantar” (Yantar Shipyard) was founded on July 8, 1945 on the basis of a Koenigsberg unit of German’s Schichau Werft. Yantar Shipyard specializes in building and repair of warships and civil boats. Throughout the years the Shipyard has built 160 warships and more than 500 merchant vessels. The Russian Government holds majority stake in the shipbuilding firm through Western Center of Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation.

    United Shipbuilding Corporation (USC OJSC) is the largest shipbuilding company in Russia. It was set up in 2007 with 100% federal ownership. The holding comprises 40 companies and organizations (major shipbuilding and shiprepairing companies as well as leading design bureaus). Currently, USC consolidates the bulk of the domestic shipbuilding complex. The Russian market is the main focus of the state corporation though it also exports its products to 20 countries worldwide.
