The sun sets on Harland & Wolff
Mar 25, 2003
The famous Northern Ireland shipyard of Harland & Wolff closed off almost a century and a half of shipbuilding at the weekend (Saturday, 22 March 2003) with the delivery of its final ship to be built at the Belfast yard.
With the delivery of the ship, a ro-ro named Anvil Point, Harland & Wolff will turn its attention to small and medium size engineering enterprises involving ship repair, design engineering and offshore structures.
A delegation from the City of Belfast recently visited Cape Town to inspect harbourside development. The visit was said to be because of the need for Belfast to utilise land once used by its shipbuilding industry, and visiting officials said they hoped to learn from the development such as the Victoria & Alfred waterside development and other Cape Town projects.
