Scotland’s Ferguson Marine Engineering has been selected to build two ferries for the Caledonian Maritime Assets fleet.
FMEL will undertake the detailed design and construction work of new vessels, as well as their testing, equipping, launching and deliver, Transport Scotland revealed in its statement.
The contract is valued at £97 million. The new ferries will be ‘dual-fuel’ vessels so they can operate on liquefied natural gas and marine diesel.
The first ferry is expected to be delivered in early 2018, with the second vessel following a few months later.
