Inchgreen Drydock



 Inchgreen dry dock opened in 1964,known as the" Big Dock"it was hoped that it would bring a lot of new business to Greenock,however by 1967 the company that ran the dock went into liquidation .

The dock has had a chequered history and its fair to say that it never filled its full potential,the dock is now owned by Clydeport,they apparently want to fill the dock in and build houses .

Just up the road at Ferguson's Marine Port Glasgow the shipyard has expanded and completely rebuilt its yard,the owner has shown interest in using the dry dock at Inchgreen,

Sadly the cranes have now been demolished.

MV Glen Sanox












MV GLEN SANNOX has been chosen as the name for Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited’s (CMAL) new dual fuel ferry.

MV GLEN SANNOX was a landslide winner among a shortlist of four names, receiving nearly 50% of the votes in a competition organised by CMAL to select the new vessel’s name. All shortlisted names were inspired by the Isle of Arran, as the ferry is earmarked to operate on the Ardrossan to Brodick route.

The 102-metre ferry is the first of two dual fuel vessels currently being built by CMAL at the Ferguson Marine Engineering Ltd (FMEL) shipyard in Port Glasgow.  The ferry will be capable of operating on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and marine gas oil (MGO).
