MSP congratulates Macduff Shipyard on its Order Success

Reacting this morning to the anticipated announcement of an order for a new marine research vessel to be built by Macduff shipyard in Banffshire, local MSP Stewart Stevenson said

"This is a terrific vote of confidence in John Watt and his team at Macduff. £4 million of new business is a very welcome boost to the local economy in a town where that is much needed.

"What we now need is the comparatively modest funding that will upgrade the slip and quay facilities so that this order is merely the first of many future sucesses."

It is understood that the 80ft fishery research vessel which is being ordered by the Scottish Executive will carry 14 crew members and scientists.
