Scotland’s Ferries Should be Built in Scotland
The Scottish Government has prioritised additional funding to enable Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) to accelerate plans for replacement vessels in the CalMac fleet.
However, as they will be built to the same specification as the existing ferries under construction in Turkey for Islay, this means that publicly owned Ferguson’s shipyard in Port Glasgow could again miss out after CMAL snubbed the yard during the Islay contract award at the first hurdle.
ALBA Party demand that the construction of ferries to replace Scotland’s ageing ferry fleet happens in Scotland.
