Yes it's a small amount of speculation on my behalf. I did hear that work has already begun on the modules and the keel is to be laid in March . Apologies for being overspeculative

why is everyone always apologising in here?

As is the superstructure for the new IF build .

Keel laid for sister ship to Gardenia Seaways for DFDS this morning. The new ship is yard no 773 and will be launched in May.

Looks like some prefabricated sections arrived by barge this morning. The dock gate is removed and the sections are being taken to the back of the building hall just out of the camera view .

What was delivered was the stern ramp for DFDS new build 773.

FSG have a good reputation for delivering on-time, so I wouldn't worry too much about the lack of visible progress.  Heres the other (outside) webcam http://31.209.185.102/view/viewer_index.shtml?id=114000

A while to go yet before the ICG keel is laid, or parts of the superstructure start arriving then!

It's beginning to look like something now!

I find it somewhat embarrasing that, despite our shipbulding history, that we can't do something like this on home soil, at least not economically.

Up and up it goes , it's like playing with a big Mechano  set

In case anyone is confused it is not the IF newbuild that you see on the FSG webcam.
Last Friday the 7th April the senior management of ICG were at the FSG yard to witness the first steel being cut for the new ship yard no.771.

I should have clarified that .

For those that haven't heard, the first steel was cut over the weekend with Eamonn Rothwell in attendance.

Article in today's financial section of the Irish Independent in relation to the new build and it stated that the ship will operate Dublin to Holyhead midweek and Dublin to Cherbourg  on the weekends .

To be fair, this is what Irish Ferries have said all along!
