Hingham Shipyard

Sturtevant would have a brief encounter with the shipyard in 1953 where only a decade earlier 15,000 men built destroyers and landing craft during WW2. Westinghouse-Sturtevant temporarily leased this section of the now very vacant, still Navy owned, shipyard for the manufacturing of mechanical draft fans until the completion of a new addition at the Hyde Park, Massachusetts, plant in 1954.

The foreground workers are in the layout space. They are tracing and cutting out fan side plates and inlet rings.
