Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has completed the construction of a plant in Shimonoseki, Japan, to manufacture skin stringers for the composite wing of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The factory supports two new plants for integrally streamlined production of the wing sections, currently under construction at Nagoya Aerospace Systems, the main aircraft manufacturing plant of MHI.

The construction of the 6,750 square metre (approximately 72,500 square feet) stringer manufacturing plant, converting a part of existing Yamatomachi Plant at MHI’s Shimonoseki Shipyard and Machinery Works, started in June 2005. Full-scale production of stringers is expected to start in August this year. The stringers manufactured at Shimonoseki will be transported to Nagoya Aerospace Systems Works and integrated into wing sections in Nagoya, which then will be shipped to Boeing by air.
