Marin Teknikk AS (MT) has secured a new ship design and engineering contract with fishing company LLC FC Virma, based in the Karelia region of north-western Russia.

The MT1112 XL longliner design, with an 58.60 metre overall length and a beam of 13 metres, has been designed to the owner’s requirements. The longliner will be equipped with a Mustad autoline system hauled through a moonpool, a full fish processing deck including a cannery, large freezing capacity, Ice-Class and accommodation for 36 crew.

The vessel will be built at the Northern Shipyard in St. Petersburg for delivery by Q4 2020, under the Russian flag and Class.

The hull and diesel electric propulsion are optimised for low fuel consumption and low emissions. Marin Teknikk was a pioneer in adopting this technology for offshore vessels, and also for fishing as far back as 2000, with Frøyanes.

This vessel is the third ordered for the same owners, and follows an agreement struck in 2017 for two similar longliners which are currently at an advanced stage of construction at the Northern Shipyard, alongside another newbuild longliner for another Russian customer.

“We are very satisfied to have signed these agreements, which will secure jobs at Marin Teknikk, in addition to creating new activity within the maritime cluster. It’s also exciting to work close upon new markets and cultures,” said Marin Teknikk sales director Richard K. Gjerde, commenting that LLC FC Virma is fully satisfied with the design and engineering delivered from MT, and the project follow-up from MT’s side.
