Vectis wins 3 years contract to support ferries in Northern Ireland

The vessels include the passenger and car ferries that service Rathlin Island off the north coast of Antrim and the car ferries that operate across the entrance to Strangford Lough. These services are both critical to the local communities and operate in often severe weather and tide conditions in areas of environmental sensitivity. During the contract Vectis will provide the full range of technical support as well as technical and project management when required. Support provided by Vectis to-date includes measures to reduce exhaust gas emissions, refit supervision, shaft alignment survey, an inclining experiment and procurement support. Vectis Marine Design is a specialist marine design consultancy focussed on the design and support of specialist vessels and small craft. We are an experienced team of naval architects, structural and marine engineers with proven design and technical support capabilities.
