Purpose: In the early 1950s, the volume of business was so great that Westinghouse was forced to rent space at the Hingham shipyard to build fan housings. This building was erected to relieve that overload.
The primary paint booth where all the fan rotors and housings were painted prior to shipping and the Turbine Test Pad, for overspeeding large fan wheels, were located here. At the north end was a huge shotblast machine used to clean metal surfaces and weldments.
Currently: Owned by The Seyon Group, industrial property investors. Soon to be separated from low-bay as part of a redevelopment.
