Harland & Wolff Technical Services in Demand

Harland and Wolff Technical Services, the stand alone design and engineering consultancy of Harland and Wolff Group, has secured a number of international contracts. Following extensive sales and marketing activity to introduce the company’s capability to the market, contracts have been obtained from the NASSCO shipyard in San Diego and Van Der Giessen De Noord of the Netherlands.

Led by Managing Director James MacGregor, the majority of the 60 staff are broadly equally distributed among four key disciplines, embracing project management, basic design, steel production engineering and outfit production engineering. Explaining the company’s philosophy and its early success, James said: “The resources available within Technical Services have significant design experience of challenging and innovative vessels embracing the merchant, naval and offshore sectors. Contracts such as BP Schiehallion and the Global Marine ultra deepwater drillships have demonstrated our credentials for world class innovative design, with high quality outputs.”
The NASSCO yard has subcontracted detailed design work for a pair of large 256m long trailer ships. They are provided with a powerful twin screw diesel electric installation with total capacity of 52.2 MW. The order form van der Giessen de Noord shipyard involves preparing the basic structural design and obtaining the classification approval for a lengthened version of an offshore support vessel originally built by Van Der Giessen for British owners Toisa. The second phase of the work will involve generating the detailed steel design model for the entire hull. The new vessel will feature modified aft and fore ends to accommodate enhanced performance criteria and increased propulsion thruster power.”
