Steel Cutting Ceremony for the vessel for Northern Lighthouse Board
Last Friday, at GONDAN Shipbuilders, Steel Cutting Ceremony for the next Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB) vessel took place. This milestone marks the start of a project that promises to modernise maritime safety in Scotland and the Isle of Man.
The NLB, which has been responsible for the management of lights, buoys and beacons in the region since 1786, plays an essential role in safe navigation. The new hybrid-powered vessel, to be delivered in mid-2025, will be equipped with state-of-the-art technology, advanced navigation systems and will be environmentally friendly.
NLB representatives Philip Day and Graham Moffat were present at the event to celebrate this exciting step. GONDAN Shipbuilders is proud to have been selected and is committed to delivering a high quality vessel to improve safety in Scottish waters and support local industry.
