Largest Private Hospital Ship

The conversion work continues on what will become the world’s largest private hospital ship. The former ferry Dronning Ingrid is being converted into the state-of-the-art hospital ship Africa Mercy at the former Cammell Laird Shipyard in England’s North East. The ship is 152m long (breadth 23.1m) and has the stated capacity of 450 berth. Mercy Ships has identified a ship outfitting company, MSC (Maritime Services Corporation) Europe Ltd and both parties are confident the project can be completed at the Hebburn facility.

CEO Donovan Palmer stated how delighted he is with the lease agreement from AMP Tyne Ltd to secure a berth at the former Cammell Laird facility in Hebburn. “For many of us it feels like coming home. Many of the crew and their families live in the immediate area, so the move back means a lot to them.” Mercy Ships, apart from requirements for qualified crew, has substantial personnel-volunteer needs in order to maintain the current conversion schedule. They are looking for experienced people with marine certificates. Alternatively, people with engineering experience who have served apprenticeships could be helpful as well as fitters from the heavy vehicle or trade industry.
