                    This is very interesting capture: seeing the ribs that will be behind the hull-plates!

                      A lot has changed since Asimut's wreck was build, but some things are still the same.
                      Ships are built with frames and covered by some material.

                        Yes, that is very true. But still an interesting image.

                          The STX OSV shipyards in Norway and Romania has been sold to Italian FINCANTIERI.

                          From Norwegian to Korean to Italian ownership in a matter of a few years.
                          What this will mean for the many small yards in the former Aker Yard system is left to be seen.

                            An assembly line for Jack-up Rigs at Keppel FELS Pioneer Yard, Singapore.
                            The graving dock holds 5 rig hulls under construction at any one time:


                            There is no wasted space in the dock:

                              The dock can be divided by this movable dock gate:



                              In this case the gate is placed so that two hulls are in the "outer" section, soon ready to be floated out, three are in the "inner" section.
