Facilities

Harland and Wolff has one of Europe's largest heavy engineering facilities. Purposely developed to create some of the world's largest ocean-going vessels the facilities are now available for a broad range of engineering projects. The world class facilities are able to handle the largest of structures in a safe, productive and cost effective environment.

CORROSION PROTECTION
Permanent Paint Hall (two off)

  • dimensions 45m x 17m
  • overall area 765m2
  • door maximum 13.5m wide x 11.87m high

Paint Cell- Fully insulated, with an automated heating and filtration system capable of 10 air changes/hour and providing a temperature of up to 35oC (depending on the outside temperature).

Blast Cell- 4 separate dust extraction systems, capable of 10 air changes/hour and is heated by waste heat from the compressor house. Expendable grit, as this offers better quality and avoids any risk of dust contamination.

Temporary Encapsulation Structure (two off)
dimensions 35m long x 30m wide x 20.6m high, can be configured as one large hall (70m long) or subdivided into multiple units. Access via gantry crane and two Rubb removable roofs.
