Work on 781 in the build house appears to have ground to a halt again over the last week or so.
Work on Leevsten and Honfleur appears to be continuing.

Exactly this.  A friend actually visited a week or two ago and was told much of the workforce was on holiday.  When people booked their holidays the yard didnít exactly plan to be in the position they are now in.

Build 781 is not due to launch until 29 October 2019,

I guess this built in holidays etc.

I wonder when Build 780 and Honfleur will be completed.

780 still appears to be moving along. It is active on AIS (If that is the correct terminology!) and I see on the latest camera shot that the rear lifeboat has been installed. Even with holidays there still appears to be plenty of workers going on and off. Quay side crane also in operation.

Just noticed the following on the FSG site from 30/08/2019:

http://www.fsg-ship.de/wordpress/en/tennor-holding-takes-full-ownership-of-flensburger-schiffbau-gesellschaft-mbh-co-kg-fsg/

Flensbug, 30.9.19; The Global investment company Tennor Holding B.V. confirms it has now become the sole owner of the German shipyard FSG.

This follows the successful acquisition of all remaining shares in FSG from the former owners, Siem Europe Sarl.

In February of this year, Tennor (formerly Sapinda Holding) became the principal shareholder in the business, established in the North German state of Schleswig-Holstein in 1872.

Siem Europe first became a shareholder in FSG in September 2014 and over the past five years has been the main purchaser of vessels produced at the yard, which has included the construction of 8 large Roll on/Roll off freighters.

Siem Europe will continue to work closely with Tennor alongside other FSG customers and suppliers to ensure the long term growth and prosperity of the business.


Also here: http://www.fsg-ship.de/wordpress/en/correction-statement-on-media-coverage-in-week-26/ is says:

Furthermore, the construction of next RoRo ship, Hull No. 781 has not stopped Ė on the contrary, the keel laying ceremony took place on 27.5.19 and is progressing to schedule on the slipway with launching scheduled for 29.10.2019.

So hull 777 to start in November?
