Mackay: Ferry delivery schedule must be set by October

Makes Statement0 Comments

Speaking after meeting board members at the shipyard, Mckay says the new delivery schedule for the two ferries must be set by October.

We have always been clear that we want to complete the vessels, secure jobs and give the yard a future. On Friday, I met with the excellent workforce and stressed the Scottish government’s commitment to achieving the best possible outcome for the yard. Today, I convened the first meeting of the newly-established programme review board and tasked them with establishing a new delivery schedule for both vessels and a revised cost window. This group will help assess the current situation and ensure the effective and efficient delivery schedule of the CMAL ferry contracts as quickly as possible.
