WGM enter phase two of electrical upgrade at Ferguson Marine!

We are proud to announce that phase two of the electrical distribution upgrade for our client Ferguson Marine is underway! Phase two of the workshop distribution upgrade project will aid the delivery of the first environmentally friendly, gas propelled ferry for Caledonian Macbrayne.

Over the past few years, Ferguson Marine has pushed the boundaries of innovation, particularly in the development of green propulsion technologies – first diesel-electric hybrid and then liquefied natural gas, demonstrated by the recent successful launches of MV Catriona and MV Glen Sannox.

Pictured here with Ian Kelso (Head of Procurement, Ferguson Marine), Gareth Fudge (WGM, Electrical Director) said; “WGM are delighted to be working with such a pioneering Scottish Company. This upgrade will not only provide surety regards electrical safety onsite but delivery productivity efficiencies at the same time”.

Statistics issued by the Health & Safety Executive detailed that between 2017/2018, 144 people were killed at their work.

Our event featured presentations from Mark Dickson (Scottish Water, Capital Investment Director), Martin Bradbury (WGM Engineering, Chairman), Kris Kelly from the Scottish Association of Mental Health (SAMH) and a very moving safety presentation from Gary Gallagher whom himself has experienced the impact of a health and safety incident which went wrong. WGM not only commit, we promise, that we will deliver an environment where health, safety and well-being are paramount and everyone returns home from work safely.
