Milestone for British Maritime Sector Powered by Wärtsilä

Industrial PRIME | May 9, 2016

As part of a significant milestone for the British maritime sector, Finland-based Wärtsilä will supply fully integrated propulsion machinery packages for the first ever dual-fuel vessels to be built in the UK.

The two 102-metre long ro-ro passenger ferries are being built for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd. based in Port Glasgow, Scotland.

In addition to propulsion machinery, Wärtsilä will also supply a wide variety of other solutions as well as extended engineering and site support services.

“This project highlights the fact that high-end, technologically advanced commercial shipbuilding is again present in Scotland,” says Liam Campbell, Managing Director of Ferguson Marine Engineering Ltd., the shipyard building the new vessels. “The project is at the forefront of marine engineering within the global ferry sector, and we value Wärtsilä’s contribution as an important partner.”

The ferries are scheduled to enter service during the second half of 2018. They will operate on various routes along the west coast of Scotland. The contracts with Wärtsilä were recorded in December 2015.
