Commercial activity on the River Clyde

Clyde-built a lasting legacy

Commercial activity along the River Clyde has increased in recent years, with over 4000 employees at the BAE shipyards at Scotstoun and Govan, contributing to the next generation of naval warfare.

It is a myth that shipbuilding on the Clyde is dead. Instead traditional Clyde shipbuilding skills and the reputation for engineering excellence remain a vital cornerstone of the 21st century UK defence industry.

Other commercial activity along the river continues too, including the only city centre seaplane service in Europe.
