JULY 26, 2012 — GHENOVA Ingenheria has selected AVEVA Marine for the engineering of eight LPG carriers being built in Brazil. Last September, Ghenova signed a contract with the STX Promar shipyard covering the development of the detailed engineering of the ships.
GHENOVA will use products from the AVEVA Marine portfolio (Hull, Outfitting, Cable Design) and AVEVA Global for the project.
AVEVA Marine is a set of integrated applications created specifically for the unique processes of the engineering and design of ship and offshore structures, design management and the generation of accurate production information.
"This is an entirely new project for us, so it was essential to select a 3D engineering and design tool that could deliver true strategic value," said Francisco José Cuervas, General Director, GHENOVA. "AVEVA Marine met all the requirements that the client set out, making it the ideal choice for our important LPG tanker project. The integrated AVEVA Marine applications will help us to save many hours during the design phase, allowing an efficient and accurate model to be delivered to our customer."
Rui Miguel de Sousa, Brazilian branch Director, GHENOVA Brasil added, "The AVEVA solution was subjected to a rigorous tender process and its integrated hull and outfitting design capability stood out against the competition. It will enable us to have clash-free, production-oriented design. We are confident this will help us achieve reduced rework and deliver the highest quality designs. With concurrent global project execution we can also ensure that all sites and users have access to the latest approved data, right down to attribute details."
"It's very rewarding to see GHENOVA select AVEVA Marine for such a large and high-profile LPG carrier project. This is a comprehensive implementation of the AVEVA Marine portfolio, employing many of our applications," said Santiago Pena, Senior Vice President - Latin America, AVEVA. "With AVEVA Marine, GHENOVA will be adopting our Integrated Engineering & Design approach that enables flexible and effective 3D design and collaborative working. Engineers and designers across all key disciplines and on multiple sites will now be able to work concurrently on a single model database. This will allow them to create, develop, manage and exploit engineering and design data in a very productive way. As we have done in other parts of the world, we are working to roll out AVEVA Marine across the Brazilian market."
