The Royal Fleet Auxiliary tanker BAYLEAF is back at Loch Striven following a major refit on the Mersey. Having just completed a £9.1 million Service Life Extension Programme at the Cammell Laird repair yard - formerly Northwestern Shiprepairers and Shipbuilders Ltd - BAYLEAF is just one of a number of vessels being refitted as part of a 25-year contract the Birkenhead shipyard signed with the Ministry of Defence. Beyong BAYLEAF is the containership SEALAND PERFORMANCE, making her way into Loch Striven to be laid up.
