Hotchya Marine Engineering designs a medium freezer trawler
Hotchya Marine Engineering has completed the conceptual design of a medium fishing freezer trawler (HS 45T) for demersal and pelagic trawling, processing, freezing, storing, and transporting fish to port, as well as producing fish meal from fish waste. The vessel can reload product to transport freezers and receive fuel, supplies, and equipment at sea. The design effort was carried out within the framework of the “Development of Civil Marine Equipment in 2009-2016” federal special-purpose program.
The trawler is a steel-hull, all welded, single-propeller, one-deck vessel with an aft engine room and an insulated hold for transportation of fish. Length: 46.86 m, Width: 12.00 m, Speed: 12 knots, Endurance: 30 days, Fuel cruising range: 7,000 miles, Navigation: unrestricted.
As per the terms of reference, the trawl fishing gear has a stern trawler design with two separate warp winches for haulage of the pelagic and demersal trawls onto the net drum. The trawl will be hauled on the ramp. To enable operation of hydraulic-motor equipment, the vessel is equipped with a hydraulic station. According to the design, the stern features a trawler working deck for mounting balanced warp towing blocks, an auxiliary winch for trawl net control, a fishing crane, and a hook towing winch. Cranes and trawl winches will be located on the decks. The vessel has workplaces for 28 crew members.
