Babcock International Group has placed an order for an extensive set of PEMA welding and production lines for shipbuilding at its Rosyth site in Scotland. In total, the order includes three lines: a PEMA Thin plate panel line, PEMA Micro panel line, and PEMA T-beam fabrication line. Each PEMA production line is based on modern shipbuilding technology that enables Babcock to raise its level of automation when welding deck panels and bulkheads. The lines will initially see service on the Type 31 general-purpose frigate programme.
