FSG Splashes RoPax Ferry for CMAL

German shipbuilder Flensburger Schiffbau-Gesellschaft (FSG) successfully launched ‘Loch Seaforth’ at noon today for Scottish customer Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL).

The ship is a state-of-the-art, complex RoPax ferry built to carry up to 700 passengers and 143 cars, or 20 trucks. In just three months time the 116 metre long ‘Loch Seaforth’ will link the mainland of northwestern Scotland with the Isle of Lewis in the Hebrides on the Stornoway-Ullapool route.

When we reached agreement on this project with CMAL a year and a half ago, the contract was dependent on the highest possible degree of reliability”, recalls FSG chief Peter Sierk.

Today’s launch demonstrates FSG capability yet again. “We are completely on schedule”, commented Sierk “and we are convinced that we will be able to hand over this newbuilding to our customer right on time, as we have done with all our other ships over the past 15 years”
