By | 2021 Newsletter week 35 | No Comments

Ferguson Marine (Port Glasgow) has completed another significant milestone in the dual fuel ferry project with the installation of the bulbous bow on Hull 802.


In recent weeks, three stern units have been lifted into place on Hull 802.  When finished, these units will house the steering gear and other equipment and will support the car deck and stern ramp.

Earlier this year, structural work on first vessel GLEN SANNOX was completed following the installation of a reworked funnel and newly constructed mast, as well as completion of the structure around the stern and inside the hull.

GLEN SANNOX is scheduled to be delivered between July 2022 and September 2022.

Hull 802 is scheduled to be delivered between April 2023 and July 2023.

Ferguson’s Bosses Welcome an Investigation into The Future of Shipyard – And Insist That Business Is Booming

Ferguson’s bosses have welcomed an investigation into a delayed £97m ferry contract and the future of yard – and insist that business is booming.

Company chief executive Gerry Marshall has broken his silence after a senior Scottish Government minister confirmed a further setback in the delivery of the two new CalMac vessels which are under construction at the Newark site.

GLEN SANNOX is now 14 months late. Hull 802 is around 20 months behind schedule.

Ferguson’s and CMAL are in dispute over the extent of changes made to the design of the ships.
