Delayed Scottish RoPax Ferries: What’s Next?

By | 2020 Newsletter week 15 | No Comments

Ferguson Marine (Port Glasgow) Limited, whose Clyde shipyard came under Scottish Government ownership last year, has awarded ICE Marine Design a contract to correct and complete the design of its Hull No 801, the dual-fuel RoPax ferry GLEN SANNOX for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd. (CMAL)

Following a detailed investigation of status of the partly-constructed vessel – including performing a laser scanning survey of technical spaces – ICE, in close cooperation with Ferguson’s new management team, carefully mapped out the design work and deliverables to be revised, updated and completed.

On 2 April 2020, CMAL has awarded a contract to KC LNG, Kosan Crisplant’s division under MAKEEN Energy, to design and install Scotland’s first LNG bunkering facilities at Uig and Ardrossan. When completed, the facilities will provide a source of LNG fuelling for the two dual fuel ferries, GLEN SANNOX and Hull 802.
