Plain sailing for HMS Caroline with Murdock Duncrue

Murdock Builders Merchants Duncrue supplied the Iroko timber decking to Blu Marine for their refurbishment of HMS Caroline in Belfast, which was completed recently. The pictures above show the finished product on board, while the video below shows the timber going through our mill at Cranwood Industries Warrenpoint in preparation for delivery to site.

Brian Hargy of Murdock Duncrue is pictured on board the vessel with Spencer Williams, Project Manager, Blu Marine. Customer BluMarine have been at the heart of the £11.5 million revamp made possible by a Heritage Lottery Fund grant and additional investment by the former Department for Enterprise, Trade and Investment. More than 70 BluMarine staff worked on the ship in preparation for the 100th anniversary commemoration events marking of the Battle of Jutland fought in June 1916 in the North Sea, near the coast of Denmark's Jutland Peninsula.
