The keel of a new factory trawler for Atlantrybflot, part of the FOR Group, has been laid at a ceremony at the Vyborg Shipyard. The 80.40 metre by 15.40 metre breadth trawler is the latest in a series under construction, built to a Skipsteknisk design.

Yuri Matochkin is designed for single and twin-rig trawling, with a 4640kW main engine, 1000kW and 520kW gensets and a 3250kW shaft generator, as well as a 600kW bow thruster.

Yuri Matochkin is expected to concentrate on demersal species, producing H&G and fillets in a factory deck with a production throughput rate of 100 tonnes/day, as well as cod livers and with fishmeal and fish oil production on board. The fishroom will have a 20500 cubic metre capacity and there is a 260 cubic metre meal store.

The keel-laying ceremony was attended by FOR Group’s deputy director general Andrei Popov and board chairman Dmitry Kozharsky, Nikolai Ulyanov and Alexei Timoshchuk.

‘Today we are starting the construction of a new vessel,’ Andrei Popov said.

‘It is gratifying to note that this has become a tradition for us. Today we are laying the keel for a ship for Atlantrybflot, a company in the FOR Group. Vyborg Shipyard is growing in its capacity to build some of the most sophisticated vessels in the civil sector. I have no doubt that the ‘Vyborg quality’ will fully satisfy expectations.’
