CalMac Ferries Ltd

“I am writing to compliment the service Serco recently received on one of our vessel’s. The vessel required an urgent lift inspection carried out due to being on downtime, within two hours of contact Scotia, a test engineer was on site and carried out an expedient load test on some critical equipment. Owing to this expedite service, our vessel’s tasking was not interrupted and the vessel remained available for tasking.  Many thanks to your dedicated team.”
