"The build dates for 3001-3004 are the dates that they were completed in the form in which t hey were delivered. Much of these four units had been assembled in 2012 for Qube Holdings, but they were not delivered to Qube, and they had parts replaced and added in 2020 to comply with White Pass specifications. So, NRE considered 03-2020 and 06-2020 the build dates." -- Robert Hilton
