American WWII ship gets air conditioning installation

A celebrated WWII battleship has been decked out with high-tech air conditioning

The highly esteemed USS North Carolina battleship that was used by the Americans during World War II has recently undergone a major refurbishment, including the installation of an air conditioning system so visitors can enjoy the ship’s impressive interior in cool comfort.

The famous USS North Carolina (BB-55) battleship was commissioned in April 1941 after costing almost $77m to build. It is one of the most widely recognised battleships in the world having been an important warship at every stage of the Pacific Theater of Operations and receiving 15 battle stars throughout its career during WWII.

It was decommissioned in 1947 and is now docked at Cape Fear River in Wilmington where it is a very popular attraction for locals and tourists alike, receiving over 300,000 visitors every year.

These battleship visitors will now be greeted with fresh and cool air during the summer period following the recent installation of a Carrier variable refrigerant flow (VRF) heating and air conditioning system throughout the ship, including in its catering area, wardroom, guest bathroom and employee offices.

The wardroom is where commissioned officers would have dined in its previous life. However, the wardroom has now been turned into an impressive museum and meeting point.

Randy Ramsey, owner of Jacksonville Heating Contractors, which carried out the installation work on the historic battleship, commented: “This ship is a symbol of our region and is a destination for so many. It’s a great feeling to know that our work will help keep visitors comfortable aboard this floating museum.”
