PORT Glasgow Yard Getting Ready For Ferry Launch

FIRST Minister Nicola Sturgeon will launch the UK’s first liquefied natural gas (LNG) passenger ferry at Ferguson Marine's shipyard in Port Glasgow on Tuesday (21 November).

She will be joined by Minister for Transport and the Islands Humza Yousaf and Jim McColl, chief executive of Clyde Blowers, which owns the shipyard. The launch ceremony is due to start around 1.30pm.

MV Glen Sannox is a 102-metre dual fuel vessel which will be capable of operating on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine gas oil.  LNG is significantly cleaner and will help to reduce emissions to meet Scottish Government reduction targets across transport.  

The vessel, which will be operated by CalMac Ferries Ltd, is designed to carry 127 cars and up to 1,000 passengers.

It is earmarked for the Ardrossan to Arran route and will be delivered in winter 2018/2019.

The ferry is one of two currently being built at Ferguson Marine as part of a £97 million contract on behalf of Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL), which owns ferries and harbours servicing the west coast of Scotland and the Clyde Estuary.
