Shipbuilding Hall

StahlzuschnittThe shipbuilding hall is 340 m long and 60 m wide. A total area of 20,400 square meters is therefore available under cover for cutting steel plates. Steel is delivered by lorry on a daily basis from a steel warehouse in Bremen. There is a temporary storage area near the shipbuilding hall that covers steel requirements for approximately a week.

The shipbuilding hall is essentially equipped with:

  • Four N/C-controlled cutting-off machines, including a plasma fusion cutting machine, all for steel plates of up to 16 x 3.5 m
  • A panelling assembly line for steel plates of up to 16 x 15.5 m with two pieces of automatic welding equipment, including profile placing equipment
  • A section assembly line
  • Two gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 15 t, three gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 10 t and magnetic lifting heads, as well as various floor-operated cranes with a capacity of 3 t to 50 t.

Pre-Assembly Hall

This hall is equipped with four gantry cranes in total, two of which have a lifting capacity of up to 30 t each and two with a capacity of up to 15 t.

Objects are transported to the building area Westdock by a craneway which runs to the end of the docks and to the building area Helgen by means of an industrial truck.

Steel Structure Hall

HalleThe steel structure hall is 60 m long and 32 m wide and has a total area of 1,920 square meters under cover. This is where bigger structural steel pieces such as funnels and exhaust hoods are made.

The hall is equipped with two floor-operated gantry cranes with a lifting capacity of 20 t each, eight floor-operated lifting beam cranes with a lifting capacity of 1.6 t each, a bending press, plate shears for pieces of steel up to 10 mm thick and a roller to make things round.
