The Nomadic and the RMS Titanic
Harland and Wolff shipyard has won a £2 million contract to help restore the boat which ferried passengers to the Titanic.
The money was awarded by the European Union with additional funding from the Northern Ireland Tourist Board and will primarily cover work associated with the steelwork and superstructure of the Nomadic, which has been in a dock in Belfast since 2006.
Social Development Minister Alex Attwood announced the new contract with Harland and Wolff in Belfast.
Work will start on the project immediately and is scheduled to be completed by the end of July. It will provide more than 25 jobs and at least three new posts will be created.
The Nomadic and Titanic were launched from Harland and Wolff in 1911.
