STAR fabricates and loads out offshore facilities from a 500,000+ square meter fabrication yard built to adhere to international standards. Annual production capacity is 30,000 metric tons of offshore structures, generating hundreds of a direct employment opportunities, as well as providing impactful prospects for local trading.
Services & Products
STAR maintain a wide variety of facilities across their yard including a Heavy Welding Line designed to support the fabrication of long size spools and piles. The line is constituted of a Gantry crane, submerged arc welding machines, a movable shelter for welding, as well as one for painting or blasting activity.
Their Lay Down Area is spread across 485,000 sq meters as an arena for fabrication activities as well as functioning as a store space for project materials. STAR’s Load-Out Area exhibits a six-meter water depth draft with a Jetty reinforced for loads as heavy as 50 ton/m2, at a length of 414 meters to accommodate various sizes of cargo barges and vessels. The STAR Jetty has the capacity to load-out a completed fabricated offshore facility from the yard to a cargo barge.
STAR’s 23,000 sq. meter prefabrication workshops are split into four different bays and equipped with seventeen overhead cranes with 10 to 60 tons lifting capacity. The first of the Bays is designed and equipped for prefabrication activities such as Plasma Cutting machines, Beam Cutting machines and light welding line for pipes with diameters below 30 inches. The second bay accommodates Coldcutting machines, Rolling machines and Plate Cutting machines. The third bay is designed to facilitate the prefabrication of decks sub-assemblies and levels, and the fourth for prefabricating structural levels and sub-assemblies.
The site also maintains an assembly area for Jacket/Decks equipped with full underground utilities.
STAR Piping Fabrication workshops are designed to segregate during fabrication standard carbon steel and exotic materials (stainless steel, copper, nickel, etc.).
STAR also proudly hosts a welding school and a Training Academy on site, featuring a theory classroom capable of accommodating up to 30 people, with an area for practical training too. This facilitates the possibility to develop and upgrade an individual’s welder’s qualification with a longer-term welding program option implemented in the Welding Academy to train and qualify young Saudi welders holistically.
STAR’s Desalinization Plant, Sewage Treatment Plant and Power Generation Area has the capacity to desalinate up to 100 M³/day of seawater. The plant contains three freshwater tanks for storage with a total capacity of 300 M³ and a sewage treatment plant to treat up to 100 M3/day of sewage.
