Breezemount Help to Restore HMS Caroline
The count-down has begun for the opening of HMS Caroline in Belfast's Titanic Quarter, Breezemount are delighted to have been working with Blu Marine on part of the restoration works.
Our hydraulics team were asked to custom build an automated system to lift two deck hatches, allowing public access to the stairs. The systems were to be operated by a push button start and provide a flashing beacon and buzzer as the hatch was being either raised or lowered. The system was to be integrated into the ships fire alarm to ensure the hatches would automatically lifted if the alarm was sounded to allow safe evacuation of visitors onboard.
Around the clock works continue onboard HMS Caroline, the war cruiser will be opening as a museum attraction in Belfast Harbour on the 31st May 2016, sees the centenary of The Battle of Jutland and with it, the opening of this fantastic ship!
