A plan to redevelop Govan Shipyard has been drawn up which would modernise the yard and is hoped would help attract future orders.
The plan by owners BAE Systems is to demolish existing buildings on the site, including an historic A-listed engine shed, and extend the current shipbuilding shed back towards Govan Road.
It would allow ships to be built entirely indoors and allow the shipbuilding operation to be under cover.
The plans are at an early stage with a Proposal of Application Notice and location plan submitted to Glasgow City Council.
BAE had a previous plan to build a ‘frigate factory’ at Scotstoun with indoor ship halls which would have been a £200m investment, which it later abandoned.
The Govan plan is nowhere the scale of the frigate factory but it will modernise the operation on the south of the river.
