The ship manufacturing process at Conrad Shipyard is streamlined and efficient with quality control built into every stage. Conrad’s Automated Panel Line facility at Deepwater South represents the latest in assembly-line manufacturing technology. The fully enclosed facility allows work to continue day and night regardless of weather conditions, and in a series of automated stations, plates are precisely sized and cleanly cut, transferred via conveyor to other stations where they are welded into panels and stiffners are fitted and welded. All workstations are supported by overhead cranes.

The result is that work is performed safely and efficiently, under the highest standards of quality. This translates into dependable production schedules and lower cost to our customer.
