Bay 4, is the latest addition to the Sky-Hill fabrication facility. Exclusively for mega-scale projects, the bay accommodates the largest of pressurised equipment & structural construction projects such as: Heavy-walled, large diameter pressure vessels & modularised plant fabrications.

Completed Dimensions:

• Total Length: 500 m;
• Total Width: 25 m;
• Total under hook height: 19 m;
• Total lifting capacity: 1500 t.

Bay 4 also houses the Tandem Horizontal Boring Mill, the only one of its kind in the world.

The machine, which was manufactured by Czech Republic-based machining manufacturer TOS Varnsdorf, is fully automated and programmable and can easily accommodate small, detailed and intricate work, as well as heavy pieces. The horizontal boring mill also includes a cutting fluid tank with a capacity of 10 000 ℓ, with a high-pressure coolant of 120 bar. This helps for chip removal and tungsten carbide inserts lasts longer. the spindle diameter is 150 mm, with a maximum speed of 2 500 rpm

A fully equipped, state of the art, machine shop will also form part of the bay.
