Presentation: Design & Construction of MV Swift

In September 2021, we were asked to present the story of MV Swift to the Barrow & District Association of Engineers. The presentation took place on 16 September at the Forum, Barrow and the slides are presented here. As well as tracing the history of the design and construction of the vessel, it included some behind-the-scenes tours of the engine room on board.

  • Please note that this is a selection of slides and videos without narration and it is aimed at an engineering audience. A lot of the information is technical but hopefully of interest to anyone from an engineering/marine background.
  • Watch the full presentation below (25 mins) or jump to highlights with the links below.
