    UK's Cammell Laird will build BAS new £200 million polar research ship

     Cammell Laird chief executive, John Syvret CBE, met with NERC chief operating officer Paul Fox (L) to seal the deal in Birkenhead

    The Birkenhead shipyard Cammell Laird said it saw off competition from Europe and beyond including Korea and Singapore to be selected as the preferred bidder to build a new vessel for the UK-funded Natural Environment Research Council (NERC). The contract was signed last week and it is expected that full production will start in June next year, and on completion the vessel will be operated by NERC’s British Antarctic Survey (BAS).
