AND FINALLY: Veni, Vidi, Vici

The Luctor Et Emergo self-propelled jack-up - designed (but not built) in Scotland.
The Luctor Et Emergo self-propelled jack-up – designed (but not built) in Scotland.

Big Congratulations to the Glasgow-based marine engineering company CDC Scotland for getting its Clyde-side designed heavy-lift N. Sea self-propelled jack-up into production.

The design is being built by Dutch-based OOS Energy and the new vessel – one of a pair – is to be called ‘Luctor et Emergo’ – which translates as “I struggle, I emerge”

In light of the struggle to get home-built Scot-govt development agency help for ‘Luctor’, the name of the second vessel which is being – ironically – suggested in what’s left of a less-than-chuffed’ Scottish heavy engineering and Clydeside shipbuilding industry is ‘Veni, Vidi, Vici’.

Our learned Latin-speaking friends say this translates as: “I Came, I Saw, I Conquered”.
