The investment is not only destined for hull assembly, but it also has a purpose in ship launch operations. The new production line, located alongside the existing first similar assembly line operated for a couple of years now, will be functioning independently. It is destined for assembly of blocks into hulls of up to 130 m in length and skidding or rolling the hulls onto a adjacently moored floating dock or heavy-lift submersible barge for launching.
