Methil, the larger of the two sites, will focus on fabrication for the oil and gas, commercial and renewables markets, according to the new owners, while Arnish will look at all Harland & Wolff’s five markets: defence, oil and gas, renewables, commercial and cruise and ferry.

Group director of human resources, Kelly O’Rourke said: “we are very excited to be bringing Harland & Wolff to Scotland and are keen to hear from prospective employees as we look to build on our existing workforce across a range of trades and other roles.

“Joining our two already established sites in Belfast and Appledore, Harland & Wolff (Methil) and Harland & Wolff (Arnish) will work across a range of sectors, with a particular focus on renewables. As with all our sites, a skilled local workforce is crucial to our success and we want to hear from those in the local areas and across Scotland with the key skills we need.”
