Sembmarine opens new high-tech steel structure fabrication workshop

Sembmarine opens new high-tech steel structure fabrication workshop
Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine has opened a state-of-the-art steel structure fabrication workship, which is expected to boost the company’s steel fabrication capacity for future needs.

The new 120,000-square metre workshop, believed to be the largest of its kind in Southeast Asia, is located at Sembmarine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard at the western end of Singapore.

“This new facility will integrate with all other capabilities in our flagship Tuas Boulevard Yard and allow us to more effectively offer customers a one-stop shop for offshore and marine engineering solutions,” said Wong Weng Sun, president and ceo of Sembmarine.

“It is also a key feature of our ongoing development to turn the Tuas Boulevard Yard into a high-tech production hub that underpins Sembcorp Marine’s ability to compete on value and scale,” Wong added.

The new workshop comprises five bays for pre-treatment, cutting and assembly, and is ergonomically designed to facilitate a seamless work flow. It operates with a suite of computerised systems, mechanised steel-cutting and welding equipment, high-capacity cranes, and a streamlined process optimising production efficiency and reducing man-hours.

Standout features of the new facility include a fully-automated panel production line that delivers high quality welding precision and efficiency, as well as capabilities for producing steel components of customised shapes and sizes.

In July this year, Sembmarine transitioned from a multi-business unit organisation structure into a single brand and company under its long term ‘Transformation for Growth’ strategy.
