On February 4, the ceremony of raising the state flag of the Russian Federation took place on the trawler ‘Barents Sea’ (project KMT01). The first domestically built large-capacity trawler-processor was completed at the Vyborg shipyard in the Leningrad region.
Trawler-processor “Barents Sea” was handed over to the Customer by shipbuilders of Vyborg in September 2020. The vessel was built within the framework of the state program of “investment quotas”, which provides for the allocation of additional quotas for catching biological resources to companies building vessels at the shipyards of the Russian Federation.
The vessel is equipped with a factory for full cycle processing and freezing and the latest trawl complex. The trawler uses a number of the latest solutions that increase the efficiency of the vessel in the fishery, for example, an integrated system of variable frequency of the internal power grid, which ensures fuel savings during crossings, as well as equipment that allows using a computer to sort frozen products by type and form pallets that will be transported from the hold to the upper deck of the trawler through the elevator shaft, from where they will be unloaded ashore, double reducing the time for unloading products from the ship.
