#BelfastLough - MJM Group based in Newry, Co. Down has landed a major new deal which will see it refit a major cruiseship at Harland & Wolff in Belfast.

The move writes the Belfast Telegraph, is part of a recent multi-million pound contract between cruise operators Royal Caribbean and Azamara Club and the specialist high-end fitout company, MJM Group. It also marks the first time a cruise ship firm has awarded complete project management responsibility to an individual organisation.

MJM Group will project manage the docking, berthing and refit of the Azamara Pursuit in Belfast this April and the ship will make its maiden voyage in August.

Gary Annett, chief executive of MJM Group, said the deal is a “milestone opportunity” for the company.

"The success of this project has the potential to be a game-changer for the UK maritime industry. By securing this multi-million pound contract we are putting Northern Ireland, and the UK’s marine industry in a strong position to compete for future drydock and refit works," he said.
