Harland & Wolff maintains a strong reputation in the UK for its two strategic defence assets. In Belfast, we are one of the only three UK naval shipbuilders suitable for major MOD contract work. Meanwhile our Appledore shipyard has a strong portfolio of vessels built within its facilities, from military craft to bulk carriers.
Our senior team has extensive experience across several high-profile global defence programmes, including; the Canberra Class Amphibious Assault Ship, Anti-Ship Missile Defence for the Royal Australian Navy ANZAC Class Frigates, the Canadian patrol programme and UK complex warship programmes.
With the capacity to facilitate emergent maintenance and repairs for the UK Sovereign Flagship, Harland & Wolff (Belfast) enables sustained Continuous Carrier Capability. Supported by 30,000m² of undercover fabrication facilities in Belfast and 119m of covered drydock in Appledore, the two shipyards work symbiotically to deliver results.
Located at the Port of Belfast, Northern Ireland, Harland & Wolff (Belfast) is six miles away from the end of the Victoria Channel and sixteen miles clear of Belfast Lough. With two international airports on our doorstep our Belfast site boasts accessibility.
