Shipbuilding technology – Did you know ?
Shipbuilding activity has been carried out by humans for thousands of years, with inventions of new techniques taking place at different times. Modern shipbuilding techniques refers to the best available technology and processes appropriate to advancing the-state-of-the-art of shipyards. The technique makes best possible use of resources and materials in shipbuilding to make it fast, safe and secure. One such example is use of specialised steels such as ABS steels instead of welded steel to achieve the optimal performance of ships. Modern shipbuilding techniques is also making considerable use of prefabricated sections to create superstructures elsewhere and transport it to building docks for assembling. The introduction of specialised discipline called “naval architecture” has contributed in the significant improvement in design, durability, speed, and ease in maneuvering of the ships.

    Really enjoyed watching a ship being built up close and the inside. Thanks.

    so few workers! In UK there would have been a hundred men stood around! That's why we have no shipbuilding anymore.
