Shipyard Harland and Wolff in Belfast Harbour has secured a £2m (€2.35m) asset backed term debt facility.

Funds raised writes Independent.ie, will be used for working capital purposes, according to a statement from InfraStrata, the company which agreed to buy the Belfast shipyard last year.

The facility is for a period of two years, with the main amount repayable as a lump sum payment at the end of the period.

The loan carries a coupon of 13.2pc per year, payable in equal monthly instalments.

As previously reported on Afloat last week InfraStrata is behind a gas storage project in Larne Lough.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
