Bad weather is a formidable enemy of the shipbuilders, especially in a rainy country like Japan. It may affect not only the management of building schedule, but the product quality as well. So, we have built an all-weather block assembly factory. Completely covered, it allows us to manufacture high quality blocks constantly in any season, without any serious influence from the weather.
In order to optimize our output, we carefully designed the plant from scratch. For example, its crane-to-floor height is set to 28m, a sufficient clearance to freely move or turn around a steel block module of 60tons.
This facility, together with our all-weather blasting factory dedicated to surface preparation of the building block just assembled, play a key role in our management of building process and quality control.
Finally, our eco-savvy co-generation plant guarantees uninterrupted electric power even in case of emergency.
