H. & W. secures 200 jobs with "multi-million pound contract"

Postby Andrew Clarkson » Fri Nov 25, 2016 8:30 am

Harland and Wolff has secured a major manufacturing contract that it says will support 200 jobs.

The "multi-million pound contract" is with wind farm developer Scottish Power Renewables.

The engineering firm is to make 24 steel foundation jackets for wind turbines to be used in the North Sea. The work will take two years to complete.

Harland and Wolff said the new contract is "very significant for Belfast".

It added that the structures, at more than 65m tall, will almost be as "prominent in the Belfast skyline as the famous Samson and Goliath cranes".
