UK: Harland and Wolff Reports Strong Q1 Results

Belfast-based Harland and Wolff Heavy Industries’ ship repair and conversion business has recorded one of its busiest first quarters in recent history.

The shipyard, which has established its reputation as a world leader in the design and manufacture of offshore renewable energy technologies, has continued to develop its ship-building, repair and conversion specialisms and announced today that before the mid year ends, it will have docked eight vessels.

 James Lappin, Harland and Wolff’s Head of Ship Repair and Conversion says the company’s performance shows no signs of slowing down.

Following the success of the unprecedented Searose FPSO repair last summer which was completed within budget, ahead of schedule with no lost time injuries we have been experiencing a very busy period.

In Q1/2013 we docked 5 roll-on roll-off passenger ferries from the Irish Sea including four Stena vessels and one P&O,” he says.

Among the vessels were two Stena Superfast vessels. The work scopes included main engine repairs, removal and repair of rudders, complicated tail shaft removal and repair, blasting and painting, deck repairs, repairs to life saving equipment, and steel repairs in tanks.

Harland and Wolff has focused on the areas of ship repair and conversion, offshore renewable energy and design engineering in the last ten years. All three sectors have scored major commercial successes placing Harland and Wolff to the top of the UK and Irish leagues of design, fabrication and manufacturing companies.
