Block Turning - Destination ONE ST-215 - Block 102

This week marks a momentous achievement in the construction of Destination ONE ST-215!

We have successfully completed the block turning process on Block 102, propelling us one step closer to the final assembly of this extraordinary yacht.

Block turning is an integral shipbuilding technique that involves rotating a substantial block of steel by 180 degrees. This manoeuvre empowers our skilled welders to work on the upper and lower welds with enhanced comfort and efficiency, ensuring unparalleled quality and safety.

The process commences with the careful placement of the block on a mobile platform. With meticulous precision and unwavering expertise, the block is gradually rotated until it stands upright. This strategic positioning empowers our welders to embark on their work, forging flawless and robust connections.

While the block turning process necessitates time and effort, it serves as an indispensable step in shipbuilding, safeguarding the integrity of our welds. Each weld is executed with meticulous care, fostering our unwavering confidence in the durability and resilience of Destination ONE ST-215.

Block turning has emerged as a widely embraced technique in shipbuilding, seamlessly integrated across diverse ship types. With its time-tested efficacy, we take immense pride in harnessing this safe, efficient, and effective method to shape our remarkable yachts.

Destination ONE ST-215 is rapidly taking form, propelled by the unwavering commitment of our skilled team and the innovative techniques we employ. Stay tuned for further updates as we embark on this exhilarating journey!
