Parker Bestobell wins contract for Scottish LNG ferries

Parker Bestobell Marine has secured a contract to supply cryogenic globe and check valves for two dual-fuel Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries (Calmac) being built at Ferguson Marine Engineering in Glasgow.

The new ferries will be able to operate on both liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine diesel.

The valves will be installed in the LNG fuel gas systems of these vessels, which are the first UK built ships that will run on LNG, Parker Bestobell Marine said in a statement.

The first of the new Calmac ferries is expected to be delivered in early 2018, with the second vessel following a few months later. The ships are designed to carry 127 cars or 16 HGVs (heavy goods vehicles) or a combination of and up to 1,000 passengers.

Once delivered, the vessels are planned to operate on the Ardrossan-Brodick and the Uig Triangle routes in Scotland, although the final decision on vessel deployment is still to be made, the statement reads.
