    Kamchatka Governor Victor Ilyukhin reminded about long period of time when Russian shipyards were not building fishing ships adding that the situation is improving.

    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.   


    The hull of the Leninets, the lead ship of the series, is ready with equipment assembling to begin after launching.

    The SK-3101R purse seine / pelagic trawler was designed by a Norwegian engineering company Skipskompetanse A.S. that provided design, engineering drawings and technical assistance. The fishing vessel particulars: length overall: 50.6 m, beam: 12 m, main engine rated power about 2200 kW. The vessel was designed for trawl, seine and purse seine deep-water fishing.

    The caught fish will be stored in sea-water cooled cargo tanks of RSW type. This technology of storage will enable to keep the take fresh during long period of time, which is a unique feature for Russian ships.

    This multi-functional ship is tailored for operation in challenging conditions of the Far East.

    The fleet of Fishing Collective Farm named after V. Lenin currently numbers 14 vessels including 5 large and 9 medium vessels. FCF has already started training specialists for the new fishing ships.

    Renovation of the fishing fleet and modernization of fish processing are among the priorities to develop Russia’s fishing industry. With the updated law on fisheries state support measures are to encourage the construction of fishing ships at domestic shipyards. Investment quota mechanism is expected to be applied to construction of more than 100 ships. That will let renovate some 40-50% of Russia’s fishing fleet.

    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.

The Russian Government holds majority stake in the shipbuilding firm through Western Center of Shipbuilding, a subsidiary of state-owned United Shipbuilding Corporation.

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.
