The DUP MP said
“This is another step forward for the Harland and Wolff plant. Cory have agreed a further contract worth £9.5 million with H&W Belfast. Work is due to commence on the initial contract signed in June 2022, which will oversee the fabrication of 23 barges which will be used to transport recyclable and non-recyclable waste on the River Thames.
It follows on from the recent award of a £55 million Defence contract to regenerate an ex-Navy mine-hunter and the recent cruise liner contract from Cunard & P&O. This is a sign of confidence in the H&W's ability to fulfil these contracts and is continued positive news for the Belfast-based workforce.”
