    "scheduled" once or twice?

    Hello.
    The ferry is scheduled to be launched in 2019 and re-delivered to the ship-owner in 2020.
    It goes without saying what the above sentence means but I would like to ask you if it is necessary to mention the word "scheduled" twice or it it enough to write "scheduled" once?
    In other words, is it advisable to write 'The ferry is scheduled to be launched in 2019 and re-delivered to the ship-owner in 2020" or "The ferry is scheduled to be launched in 2019 and scheduled/planned to be re-delivered to the ship-owner in 2020'?
    What do you think?
    Thank you.
    By launched, I mean put to water/sea, of course.

    Are you sure you mean 're-delivered'?

    Yes, after being repaired, a ship is usually re-delivered to her owner.

    I see. I thought you were talking about a new vessel.

    I was talking about a new ferry, so you are right.
    It should be "delivered".
