HMS Caroline and the Battle of Jutland
We've been pleased this year to assist as Maritime Consultants to the Naval Architects Amgram Ltd and Project Managers Artelia for the further conservation works for HMS 'Caroline'. HMS 'Caroline' is a World War 1-era warship owned by the National Museum of the Royal Navy and is undergoing extensive work to restore its appearance to that of 1916 when the vessel was engaged at the Battle of Jutland. Since June 2016, the general public have been able to visit the vessel. On 27th October the vessel was towed from her permanent moorings at the Alexandra Dock, Belfast to the Harland & Wolff dry dock with a view to preserving and enhancing the appearance of the vessel.
HMS 'Caroline' will undergo a package of cleaning, hull repair and coating work over a period of about six weeks. Upon completion of dry-docking, the vessel will be returned by tow to its berth at the Alexandra Dock, bows out and connected to a new mooring system, and where it will become a permanent maritime exhibit.
