GLEN SANNOX Remedial Work at Drydock Complete

GLEN SANNOX, the first of two dual fuel vessels being built at Ferguson Marine (Port Glasgow) Ltd, has returned to the water following the completion of a key phase of dry dock work in Greenock.

Throughout the three-week stint a package of remedial work was carried out which included the replacement of the bulbous bow, paint repair, removal of marine growth from the vessel hull and external welding.

The overall project to turn Ferguson around and deliver the ferries was in line with the plan when lockdown occurred and the cost of the project to deliver the ferries remains unchanged at £110.3m. Due to the yard being forced to close for three months and on restricted working for at least a further three months, GLEN SANNOX is now due for delivery between April 2022 and June 2022.
