Since its establishment in 1861, over 1,700 ships, offshore vessels and various steel structures of all types and sizes have begun their life in our Belfast shipyard.

Including bulk carriers, tankers, drill ships, ro-ros, passenger ferries and FPSOs. The integration of extensive facilities with a large engineering capacity and strong project management, enables us to offer a ‘one stop shop’ with a highly focused, client-centric approach.

Our 556m by 93m main dock with its two 140m ‘Goliath’ type gantry cranes, is complemented by our 30,000m2 covered fabrication halls with the capacity to handle 100-250 tonnes of structural steel per week.

The shipyard is located in the Port of Belfast, with direct deep water access and 1,800m of quayside space making it an ideal space for building a full range of vessels or structures, which following fabrication and construction, would be easily transportable.
