Our world-class fabrication facility consists of state-of-the-art equipment and infrastructure. With access to the Gulf of Mexico through the La Quinta and Corpus Christi ship channels, the facility was designed specifically for deepwater projects. Our 400-acre fabrication yard is located in Ingleside, Texas, along the La Quinta ship channel in Corpus Christi Bay. The facility boasts 2,900 ft. of continuous pile-founded bulkhead space, with water depths up to 45-ft and a 77-ft. void for offloading unusually large floating structures.
With 13,000 tons of lifting capacity, the Heavy Lifting Device (HLD) is the centerpiece of the Kiewit Offshore Services equipment fleet. Capable of installing unusually large modules on hulls in fewer sections, the HLD minimizes offshore commissioning efforts and reduces overall project costs. Kiewit Offshore also houses a fleet of heavy-lift cranes and equipment capable of transporting nearly any onshore structure.
For safety and efficiency, our facilities include an underground utility infrastructure featuring a separate breathable air system and high-pressure pipelines for gas, mixed-gas and fiber optics. The four-acre structural assembly building contains more than 170,000 sq. ft. of covered workspace with four bays. An on-site skills center for training and medical/physical therapy is also available.
Automated fabrication equipment includes:
- CNC plate-cutting facility (plasma or oxypropylene)
- CNC beam-cutting/coping facility
- CNC tubular coping machine
- Large-capacity plate-bending (rolling) machine
