Shipbuilding could return to Swan’s

The Swan Hunter shipyard could yet see the return of shipbuilding work after owner Jaap Kroese said he would be bidding for a contract with a Scandinavian company.

Just two weeks since the RFA Lyme Bay vessel was towed away from Swan’s Wallsend yard in an unfinished state after rows over costs with the MoD, Mr Kroese is showing interest in a new shipbuilding contract.
