Steelwork repairs and overhauls for Loch Fyne

Loch Fyne, a RoRo passenger and vehicle ferry owned by Caledonian Maritime Assets and operated by Caledonian MacBrayne, was originally built for the Kyle of Lochalsh to Sky route prior to the build of the Skye Bridge. The ferry now operates between Lochaline and Fishnish and is capable of carrying 200 passengers and 36 cars.

Docking at Garvel for 10 days, the ferry underwent bow and stern ramp steelwork repairs along with the overhaul of the FWD main engine. This was followed with pipework modifications, a hull HP wash and paint and hull valve overhaul. On completion, Loch Fyne’s tanks were cleaned and certified and all lifesaving appliances received annual safety checks and repairs.
