Harland & Wolff shipyard in Belfast wins P&O Cruises, Virgin Voyages work
The Harland & Wolff (Belfast) team provided its first major in-service support to Virgin Voyage’s “Scarlet Lady” cruise vessel.
The team provided the necessary support efficiently and without having to take it out of operation. This is a significant step towards providing high value add services to clients whilst ensuring vessels remain in operation – saving clients’ money by avoiding dry dockings and the need to take vessels out of service.
Harland & Wolff (Belfast) is bolstering its global reputation as a large vessel ready facility that is open for business.
Currently home to the “P&O Azura”, the largest cruise vessel to have entered the Belfast yard thus far, and at the quayside of the Repair Dock, Harland & Wolff (Belfast) is also set to welcome the Dorset Spirit, a crude oil tanker measuring over 279 meters in length. Sailing from Canada into Harland & Wolff’s Building Dock for repair works, this is the first time since the acquisition of the assets in 2019 that a vessel of this size will enter the Building Dock.
