That this House welcomes the launch of Ferguson Marine's new vessel MV Glen Sannox at its yard in Port Glasgow, Inverclyde; notes Glen Sannox and a sister vessel will be the first in the UK to use environmentally-friendly liquefied natural gas and marine gas; further notes the 102-metre ships will cost a total of £97 million, paid for by the Scottish Government through Port Glasgow-based CMAL (Caledonian Marine Assets Ltd), who own the ships and harbours used by CalMac; and acknowledges the efforts of everyone involved and looks forward to further vessel launches on the lower Clyde.
