Among its many ongoing projects, the Reykjavik-headquartered naval design bureau Nautic ehf has contracts in place for the design of new fishing vessels being built in Russia and Turkey.

Through the group’s Nautic Rus operation in Saint Petersburg, Russia, which employs 57 people, it is part of fishing company Norebo’s Project 170701 order for 10 new processing trawlers. These large vessels, being built at the Northern Shipyard, are designed for the complete processing of catches. They are capable of producing frozen fillets and other fish products, tinned cod liver, fishmeal and various by-products.

Each trawler has a production capacity of around 150 tonnes of fish per day, and a daily freezing capacity of 100 tonnes. New automated palletising systems have been incorporated to reduce labour inputs and increase efficiencies.

Alongside the construction of the 10 sea-going processors, Nautic Rus has also been brought in on Norebo and Northern Shipyard’s Project 200101 contract for the build of four 64-metre longliners, destined for operation in the Far East Basin.

Meanwhile, in Iceland, Nautic has designed a new fresher trawler that is being built at the Celiktrans shipyard in Turkey for Siglufjörður fishing company Rammi. This 48-metre LOA, 14-metre beam vessel, which features an inverted EnduroBow arrangement, is scheduled for delivery in the fourth-quarter of 2023.

Designed for bottom trawling and langoustines, Rammi’s new vessel will be equipped with four trawl winches, enabling it to operate with three trawls, and will have a 285-square metre catch handling deck.

Meet Nautic on stand B22 at Icefish to learn more about the above and other projects.
