Morris Lubricants supports marine heritage project to restore rare steam tug
12/08/2017

A project to restore the last remaining operational British Naval coal-fired steamship to have seen service in two World Wars is being supported by a lubricants company, which has been oiling the wheels of British industry for nearly 150 years.

Shrewsbury-based Morris Lubricants, one of Europe's leading oil blenders and marketers, was happy to help when The Steam Tug Kerne Preservation Society approached the company for oil to keep the steamship running smoothly.

The company supplied its Golden Film 220 and 460 Bearing Oils, high quality lubricants formulated to provide the necessary levels of friction reduction and wear protection required in bearing applications on steam driven equipment. The products resist water wash off and have a long service life.

Roger Dibnah, son of famous late steeplejack and television personality Fred Dibnah, has been involved with The Steam Tug Kerne Preservation Society for around six years and immediately turned to Morris Lubricants when the restoration project needed practical support.
