Harland and Wolff up for sale again

A famous name in British shipbuilding is seeking new owners. Harland and Wolff, the giant Northern Irish yard that built the Titanic, has been put up for sale as its Norwegian owner, Fred Olsen, goes through its own restructuring process.

The yard has not built a ship in the past 15 years, focusing instead on renewable energy installations. It continues to repair ships however. The facility boasts one of the largest drydocks in Europe.
