Tank for Scotland’s first LNG ferry delivered

Tank for Scotland's first LNG ferry delivered

Scotland’s Ferguson Shipyard in Clyde has taken delivery of the liquefied natural gas tank for the country’s first LNG ferry being built for Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited. 

The 147 cubic meter tank, weighing in at 88 tons, is the first to be delivered for two 102-metre dual fuel ferries capable of operating on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine gas oil (MGO), helping to reduce emissions.

The tank, supplied by Wartsila, left Shanghai, China eight weeks ago, traveling by sea through the Suez Canal to Antwerp before reaching Scotland’s shore

Caledonian Maritime Assets said the pressurized tank, made from double-skinned stainless steel and perlite insulation, is the single largest component required for the construction of the vessels.

When commissioned, the two ferries will provide year-round service for the Ardrossan to Arran and the Skye Triangle routes.

The first ferry, as MV Glen Sannox, is expected to enter service in the second half of 2018.
