Shipyard Seeks More Orders


Belfast shipyard Harland and Wolff celebrates the completion of an advanced drilling ship for a Texas based oil company. But the Glomar CR Luigs, and a sister ship for the same company, Global Marine, are the last firm orders which the company has.

The second vessel is also nearing completion and the shipyard is now seeking to return to defence industry work for the first time in a decade. Harland and Wolff has tendered to build two landing craft for the Royal Navy and is trying to win work on two new aircraft carriers as part of a consortium. The company says it has also been shortlisted for an oil drilling ship for Shell and is hoping to win a contract to build the hull of passenger vessel. But the company's prospects of staying as an oil industry specialist have been depressed by low oil prices and the aggressive pricing policies of South Korean yards.
