Participants will compete at technical skills crucial to shipbuilding, including such skills as welding and carrying. Under the theme “Mindful Technique” to train technicians to improve their mental approach to technique, 9 types of competitions for skills including welding and coating painting will be held.

Our Technical Olympics started in 2001 to showcase welding skills at the Tsuneishi Factory. The event has grown every year since, and now it is one of the challenges for the whole factory. At the Tadotsu Factory, this event started from 2006, and this year about 140 technicians will compete.
