The 400-metric-ton structure is scheduled to reach full operational status later this year to support the construction of Virginia-class submarine Utah‘s bow module, HII said Thursday.

HII opened JMAF last year to serve as a venue for Newport News Shipbuilding’s production work on submarines and aircraft carriers.

The company produced a time-lapse video that illustrates the mounting process.
