31 January 2013

AVEVA Marine delivers significant cost and time savings on large FPSO projects

Paris, France: AVEVA announced today that Porto Amboim Estaleiros Navais Lda (PAENAL) Yard, an Angolan joint venture between Sonangol, SBM Offshore and DSME, has implemented AVEVA Marine for the integrated 3D design of offshore steelwork and outfitting across its construction yard. AVEVA’s software was selected for its ability to efficiently handle complex steelwork and outfitting design for offshore assets such as FPSOs and Platforms, saving time and man-hours, not only in design, but also on the production field.

By using a single model database, AVEVA Marine will enable PAENAL Yard to create, develop, manage and exploit engineering and design data, achieving benefits such as improved design quality, reduced production rework and optimised use of resources. PAENAL Yard will use AVEVA Marine Outfitting to create precise production info such as, plate nesting and workshop drawings.

'Members of our joint venture have used AVEVA software for a number of years on many successful FPSO projects, so we are fully aware of its capabilities,' said Sung-Ho Son, Engineering Manager, PAENAL Yard. 'For offshore projects, the technology advantage of integration between disciplines in AVEVA Marine is considerable. The ability to drive efficiencies through the entire engineering process using AVEVA’s highly productive tools helps to ensure that we offer our customers the highest possible quality while delivering savings both in construction deliverable generation and production that improve our bottom line. The work at this yard will support Angola’s growing and strategic offshore oil & gas sector.'

'AVEVA Marine provides a business-critical set of applications to support PAENAL Yard’s large and complex projects, including Topsides”, added Fredy Ktourza, Senior Vice President – West EMEA, AVEVA. “AVEVA’s expertise in shipbuilding and offshore is second to none. By offering fully integrated, concurrent development of 3D design data, our other shipyard customers achieve savings of up to 30%. We are confident that by upgrading to AVEVA Marine from competitive solutions, PAENAL Yard will be able to achieve similar savings on its projects in the future.'

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. Learn more about AVEVA Marine.
