HDW (Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG
) has signed a five-year agreement with Tribon Solutions to continue their use of the Tribon Shipbuilding System
at the shipyard in Kiel, Germany
. HDW will use the Tribon system for design and production of all types of naval and merchant ships.
HDW has used shipbuilding systems from Tribon Solutions since
1986. HDW implemented the Tribon system in 1995. Since 1986, HDW has built more than 74 merchant and 44 naval ships such as open-top reefer container ships, cruise liners, ferries, special-purpose ships, submarines, corvettes and frigates using production information from the Tribon Solutions’ shipbuilding systems.
The most modern production lines and advanced construction techniques guarantee the high quality of the ships being built by HDW. These improvements in production have been developed and implemented in close co-operation between HDW and Tribon Solutions. Some important and innovative results of these projects are the Tribon Genauigkeit module, the Tribon Dotori module, the Tribon Profile Robot Cutting Interface, and the Tribon Panel Line Control module.
