Specialist ship designer, Vard, has announced that it has signed an agreement to provide a new stern trawler to Russian deepwater fishing company Luntos.

The new vessel, a customised Vard 8 02 design has a length of 80.4 metres and a beam of 16.7 metres. Luntos operates out of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky in the Far Eastern Russian Economic Fishing Zones and Bering Sea.

Scheduled for delivery in Q2 2021, the trawler’s design has a modern working and living environment for crewmembers and a focus on the quality of the pelagic catch handling, keeping the fish in healthy condition until processing. Key features include two separate cargo holds for palletised, refrigerated and frozen fish, with a freezing capacity of 170 tonnes per 24 hours.

Working in partnership with Luntos, Vard has focused on incorporating the latest, most efficient technology to ensure the catch can be brought ashore with the minimal environmental footprint. The vessel hull has been designed for optimal efficiency during both trawling and transit and an environmentally friendly propulsion and power solution optimises energy consumption.

Vard Design in Ålesund has developed the Vard 8 02 design, while the build itself will take place at Vard Vung Tau in Vietnam.
