AVEVA Marine solution to usher new era of digital design and construction management
Date: 10th October 2018
AVEVA, a global leader in engineering and industrial software, today announced MV WERFTEN has renewed its commitment to AVEVA with an agreement to use a greater range of solutions from the AVEVA portfolio to design and construct cruise ships. Every MV WERFTEN subsidiary now has full access to AVEVA’s integrated engineering and design and information management solutions. This will drive further improvements in collaboration and efficiency across shipbuilding design and construction, due significantly to the implementation of a Digital Twin strategy.
“The combination of AVEVA and Schneider Electric’s industrial software business was an important factor for us when considering the scope of our future contractual relationship with AVEVA”, said Stefan Korsch, CIO at MV WERFTEN. “As we continue to drive innovation in our industry, we see AVEVA as an industry leader, helping define the digital transformation now in process within our industry. AVEVA has the industry knowledge and highly functional and stable software portfolios with the capabilities that meet our industry challenges.”
The design of large, complex vessels is a challenging organisational task requiring deep collaboration, multifaceted process documentation and governance, as well as thorough industry knowledge. Shipbuilders work with multiple suppliers and partners across the world. During the design and construction process they are increasingly turning to the Digital Twin for innovation and collaboration across complex workflows and distributed ecosystems.
“Our solutions are driving a digital transformation across the shipbuilding industry, with the ability to scale to meet the needs of the largest, most complex shipbuilding companies of the world,” said Amish Sabharwal, Global Head of Engineering Business, AVEVA.”
“For more than 25 years we have enjoyed a long and eventful relationship with the shipyards in Wismar, Warnemünde and Stralsund. It makes us even more proud that the new shipyard group, MV WERFTEN, has selected AVEVA as their long-term partner for the design and construction of these magnificent vessels,” said Andrew Gordon, Regional Manager with responsibility for AVEVA’s shipbuilding customers in Central and Eastern Europe.
