Irving Shipbuilding Inc. is headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Additionally, Irving is a member of the J.D. Irving group of companies, one of Canada’s largest family-owned companies. The Royal Canadian Navy chose Irving Shipbuilding to produce the next class of Canadian Surface Combatant (CSC), and Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ship (AOPS) vessels under Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy (NSS).
Irving faced the daunting task of building a new facility to produce this large amount of naval ships. Moreover, they needed a large paint facility within the same building.
3D Rendering Blueprint of Paint Booth Installation
BlastOne worked with Irving Shipbuilding Inc. to design and engineer a highly custom ship module paint facility. The massive paint facility measured a total of 180’ (54 m) long x 88’ (26.5 m) deep x 52’ (15.6 m) high. We incorporated two separate paint booths.
Irving had the option to separate the larger paint booth into two separate paint booths. The dividing curtain allowed up to 3 different ship modules to be painted simultaneously.
The system has 330,000 cfm of dehumidified air. During the curing phase, the air heats up to 140°F.
Irving Shipbuilding now has the most modern shipbuilding facilities in North America in Halifax, Nova Scotia. They now have the ability to paint ship sections 365 days a year regardless of weather patterns, thanks to the built-in heating and de-humidification.
