Administrators of the Harland and Wolff shipyard, reports BBC News, say they have received a number of non-binding offers to buy the business as a going concern.
The yard, best known for building the Titanic, was placed into administration earlier this month.
Administrators, BDO, said there are other interested parties which may result in further offers.
BDO has agreed with the unions to extend the unpaid temporary lay-off of staff until 30 September.

Insolvency experts Brian Murphy and Michael Jennings from business advisory firm BDO are now running the business.
On Wednesday the majority of the 123 staff have been able to opt for temporary lay-offs, a move which maintains their employment contracts. However, some have already opted for redundancy.
A spokesperson for BDO said on Friday: "In light of insufficient funds to cover the current running costs of the business and in the absence of any other funds being available at this point, in conjunction with Unions, the administrators have agreed to facilitate an unpaid temporary lay-off until Friday 16th August.
