CalMac Success

Iconic Scottish ferry operator Caledonian MacBrayne Ferries (CalMac) is set for a year of change in 2017 after securing a £900 million (US$1,125 million) contract to continue operating the Clyde and Hebrides Ferries Network on Scotlandís west coast. Named the successful bidder for the new contract in May 2016, state-owned CalMac competed with private firm Serco Caledonian Ferries for the Scottish government contract to run the services. CalMac already operated the west coast routes, which include the Inner and Outer Hebrides. Covering an eight-year period from 1 October 2016, the contract includes a separate agreement which sees CalMac taking responsibility for ferry operations at 24 ports on behalf of Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd.
