A new refrigerator ship “Tazovchanka” built in Tyumen on the order of the government of Yamal was delivered to Salekhard. It is intended for receiving, primary processing and freezing of fish with its following storage. The vessel will be used for fishing in waters of rivers of the Taz Estuary, as the press service of the head of the region reports.
The vessel is equipped with quick-freezing plate-type devices for shock freezing with the ability to load up to 8 tonnes per day, as well as two cold storage chambers for fish with the volume 100 cubic meters each. It will allow storing simultaneously about 90 tonnes of fish catch. The vessel will be operated by the agricultural production cooperative “Tazovskiy”, which has three fishing sites assigned to it.
“It will allow us to increase the amount of fish catch twice. The number of working places will increase by 10 people. But the most important thing is that it will be safe to work on this vessel”, said Aleksey Rozhkov, the director of “Tazovskiy”.
Potential of the new vessel was evaluated by the governor of Yamal Dmitry Artyukhov. According to him, this year three non-self-propelled isothermal vessels will be purchased for the fish factory in Salemal, Yamalskiy district and for the state farm “Baydaratskiy” in Priuralskiy district.
“Yamal adopted the large program on modernization of its fishing fleet. About three such production platforms will be created. There are plans to repair 40 existing vessels. In general, it will create conditions for increase in productivity and the new level of comfort for workers employed in this industry”, the governor underlined.
Within the program 24 non-self-propelled isothermal vessels have already been repaired during two years for enterprises of Shuryshkarskiy, Yamalskiy, Priuralskiy and Tazovskiy districts. The note: the length of the hull of the vessel “Tazovchanka” is 47 meters, its maximum load capacity is 200 tonnes. The vessel is divided into two zones: production, where fish will be received and processed, and residential — for accommodation of the crew. The vessel is moored at the berth of the fish-processing plant of Salekhard, where initial tests will be conducted on the territory of Yamal. This is no coincidence, since the enterprise commissioned a new distribution center that has started its work in full force since the beginning of summer navigation. Now the plant is using a new technology for freezing and storing of raw materials, which allows improving its quality significantly.
