Norebo Group and Severnaya Verf signed a contract for the construction of four longline vessels of project 200101 for the Kamchatka company AO YAMSy of the Norebo Group. The company plans to invest about 11.6 billion rubles in the construction of new vessels. The vessels will become part of the Norebo fishing fleet until 2025.

Main characteristics of project 200101:
Length - 63 meter
Width - 14 meter
Speed - 13 knots
Gross tonnage - more than 2900
Main engine power - up to 3 MW
Total processing capacity on the ship - up to 50 tons / day in terms of catch
Productivity freezing - up to 50 tons / day
Crew - 39 people

Norebo longline fleet is already fishing for cod and halibut in the Far East basin. The fleet includes eight German-built longliners. The new longline vessels will be equipped with state-of-the-art factories to enable deep processing of catches on board (to produce both fillets and uncut fish). The development of this direction is very promising for Norebo. Longline vessels have been shown to be effective in areas where trawling is not possible. They also have several advantages over trawlers.

Longline fisheries can catch larger cod and halibut and minimize the by-catch of other non-target fish species. As a result, fishing can be carried out in areas closed to trawl fishing due to excess by-catch of juvenile fish. In the longline fishery, all caught fish is processed, and production is practically waste-free. In addition, longliners have virtually no impact on the seabed, no non-fish species by-catch, and the impact on vulnerable ecosystems is minimized.

Now Severnaya Verf is already building 10 processor trawlers for Norebo under the project 170701. The company plans to invest 38.4 billion rubles in the construction of trawlers. Taking into account new contracts for the construction of longline vessels, the total investment package of Norebo in shipbuilding projects may amount to about 50 billion rubles.
