And don't forget that the ship's real achievement was the production of zero CO2 emissions, zero waste water and zero satisfied passengers for the whole of the 2019 summer season. Ed. 

I get the impression we've put more hours into this thread than the German shipyard have into the real ship. Ed. 

Looks as though BF have taken note of your observation... With the launch date now rapidly approaching (14th December) more information surrounding the Honfleur will be released by BF over t

There's a long line of satisfied FSG customers, from BC Ferries to UND to Cal Mac to DFDS. They'd need to get the old management and several of the key employees back before they tried anything new though and that talent may have long gone elsewhere.

True, but it depends on how ambitiously they pitch their products and if they aim for the smaller-sized vessels (which they have generally managed to make work - both as a business and once on the water) or if they persist in targeting more sophisticated orders.

They will need to start from scratch I suspect as I can't see the old management wanting to come back unless the yard gets partially nationalised to save it and they have job security.

Do Irish ferries have 'Always look on the bright side of life' as their on-hold music? Ed

Works council angry - scrapping not excluded

Works council member Thomas Jansen is extremely upset about the rejection from Oslo. It is true that external companies have been busy with the equipment recently. Nevertheless, according to his information, around 80 FSG employees were also involved. However, further construction without a customer is considered problematic. Industry experts also consider scrapping to be possible. The previous FSG managing director Martin Hammer also becomes clear: "If the Siem company thinks it can finish the ship more cheaply in the Congo, then that is the case." He points out that the Siem companies are currently under financial pressure due to the general shipping crisis.

This photo was taken of her yesterday. Aside from the company logo having been painted over, it doesn’t look like any further work has taken place yet.
