With renewable energy set to become one of the UK’s most valuable assets, we are confident with our approach to project management.

Working with a range of organisations within the renewables sector, our client-centric project management approach promotes flexibility. Adopting client-specific policies and procedures to maximising prototype designs, Harland & Wolff provide full lifecycle care.

Experience is a valuable tool which is why we frequently assist developers and other partners, such as The Carbon Trust, in assessing the ‘fabrication friendliness’ of concepts and pre-commercial products – shaping the future of this industry.

With extensive facilities at both Belfast and Appledore, Harland & Wolff offer unique opportunities to manufacture and store structures until delivery.
