Wilmington District Commissions the Dredge Murden
WILMINGTON, N.C. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Wilmington District officially commissioned its newest shallow-draft dredge vessel – MURDEN – in a ceremony May 29 at the Engineer Repair Yard. The Commissioning Ceremony signifies the acceptance for service and entry of a ship into the active fleet. It is the final and, perhaps most significant, event of the triad that brings a ship to life. Keel laying, Christening, and Commissioning carry a ship from an idea to a reality.
