Specialist parts manufactured in the Harland & Wolff Arnish yard are on their way to Belfast, for use as part of a major vessel refit at the company’s dry dock in Northern Ireland.

The Canadian floating storage/production vessel (FPSO) SeaRose arrived at Harland & Wolff Belfast at the weekend, just as test pieces were being loaded at Arnish for shipment across the Irish sea.

The workboat Carly left Arnish fully loaded on Friday (9 February) and is due to arrive in Belfast on Thursday 15 February.

The buoy seal test plates were manufactured at Arnish to a very tight deadline, with the team working 24 hours a day to complete them to schedule.

Harland & Wolff’s multi-site business model allows it to serve different client requirements when needed from different locations, as in this instance.

The yard at Arnish currently has a 150-strong workforce and a thriving apprenticeship programme.

Pictures show the buoy seal test plates being loaded onto the Carly before heading off from Arnish for Belfast (Harland & Wolff).
