Truflo Marine exhibit at Festival of the Sea

Rob Watson, Truflo Marine’s Technical Director at the exhibition stand.

On Saturday 19th June and Sunday 20th June, Truflo Marine Limited was proud to exhibit at the 4th Festival of the Sea Exhibition hosted by valued customer BAE Systems. With free entry for the public, the event celebrates Barrow’s long standing connection with the shipbuilding industry. This year’s event was made extra special as it coincided with the 50th anniversary launch of Britain’s first nuclear powered submarine, HMS Dreadnought which was built in Barrow.

With no less than 75 attractions, exhibitions and trade stands to watch and browse, visitors to the festival had plenty to enjoy. Following permission from The Ministry of Defence and the Royal Navy, The Devonshire Dock Hall opened its doors for the second time to reveal a rare glimpse into the world of submarine construction. The Astute class submarines Ambush, Artful and Audacious could be seen in their various stage of build. In addition HMS Richmond a type 23 Duke Class Anti Submarine Warfare Frigate and the tall ship Phoenix wowed visitors.

Full of pride, shipyard employees are currently working with fellow organisers Barrow Borough Council to make the 2011 Festival of the Sea even bigger and better.
