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.

Enters dry dock

Repair

The Glen Sannox enters the Dale Marine dry dock, a short distance down thr river from Port Glasgow, for remedial work. The ship will have its bulbous bow replaced, paint will be repaired and marine growth will be removed. The ship is due to return to the Ferguson yard at the end of August. Turnaround director Hair:

This is a key milestone in the recovery programme for the dual fuel vessels. Some work has been carried out on MV Glen Sannox at the shipyard, but the dry dock period is important because it will bring the vessel up to a condition that will allow us to move forward in earnest with the vessel completion plan. It is also another clear sign of recovery for the shipyard business and comes only weeks after the launch of a steel barge for a customer in the offshore oil and marine sector.
