    History of this Location


    Established in 1853 Harland and Wolff produced 174 warships (excluding auxiliaries) for the Royal Navy between 1868 and 1969. It possesses one of the few UK dry docks capable of holding the QE class carriers. It went into receivership early in Aug 2019. [With thanks to @NavyLookout]

    The former shipyard was bought by energy infrastructure company InfraStrata in a GBP 6 Million deal during Oct 2019. The InfraStrata acquisition will allow substantial savings to be made by bringing much of the fabrication internally for its Islandmagee gas storage work in County Antrim. Its ultimate fate once the gas storage programme has completed is unclear.
