MV Glen Sannox

MV Glen Sannox27 posts

MV Glen Sannox and its sister ship, known as Hull 802, are passenger ferries, currently being built by Ferguson Marine in Port Glasgow, Scotland. The Glen Sannox, which is to serve the Arran route, was originally scheduled to go into service in 2018. Production delays have led to significant cost overruns.

Announcement

The ferry returns to the water after dry dock works are completed. 42 tonnes of mussels were removed from the hull, its bulbous bow replaced, paint repaired, and external welding completed. Hair:

Following a period of uncertainty due to COVID-19, it has been really gratifying to see our team return to outdoor working on MV Glen Sannox. We’ve made some solid strides forward over the last few weeks on MV Glen Sannox and have slightly extended the dry dock period to take advantage of the stability of the vessel whilst stationed there to carry out some additional tasks. Now that the ferry has been brought up to its current condition and has returned to our shipyard, the next steps will include work on the superstructure, electrical work and the installation of approximately 16km of pipework.
