FACILITIES

Outlines of Kyokuyo's shipbuilding and ship repair facilities and equipment, including two docks.

MAIN FACTORY

Kyokuyo Shipyard's factory is the best size for its products. The layout of the facility is highly efficient, with no restrictions due to the topography or shape of the site. Together with our pioneering efforts in labor-saving and modernization, we are able to improve quality and speed up construction.

Its location adjacent to the Kanmon Straits, a key shipping route, allows your ships to be chartered in and out with no time loss.

All-weather Blasting Plant

The weather has the greatest impact on work efficiency. That is why we have an all-weather block assembly plant. We are able to manufacture high-quality blocks regardless of any weather conditions.

This plant boasts high ceilings at 28 meters below the crane level, allowing us to move blocks in mid-air and to freely invert 60-ton blocks. It also demonstrates its capabilities in advance outfitting.

An all-weather blasting plant is located next door, ensuring high precision control of product and coating quality and processes regardless of the season or climate.

REPAIR DOCK

One 125m x 21.4m repair dock is available for docking surveys and other inspections, marine casualties and conversion works.
