Hereford Times: Belfast archive being used in bid to stem leaking shipwreck off Canadian coast

Hereford Times: Belfast archive being used in bid to stem leaking shipwreck off Canadian coast. “National Museums NI is helping the Canadian coastguard’s operation by supplying plans and images from the building of the 483ft cargo ship in Belfast in 1949. Originally a steamship, it was rebuilt in the 1960s to its oil-fuelled form. These plans will help to build a clear picture of the type of oil used and the location and capacity of its fuel tanks.”
