Sanoyas Choses Sener

Thursday, June 21, 2007
Japan’s Sanoyas Hishino Meisho Corporation (Sanoyas) signed a contract with Spain’s SENER for the use of FORAN as its new shipbuilding 3D CAD software. The order has been sealed by Takafumi Itoh (Sanoyas Executive Director) and Luis García (SENER Marine Business Unit Vice President).

Although Sanoyas have used 3D CAD developed by a major Japanese shipbuilder, it has been seeking its next shipbuilding system in order to achieve further integration of design and production, as well as efficient design with a core focus on a modern 3D CAD system.

In the last stage of the selection process, ship hull and outfitting design engineers from Sanoyas analyzed the prospective system by conducting 3-week training and workshop at Tres Cantos. The evaluation concluded with a full study of the support strategy for the dystem, which had to be fully adapted to Japanese shipyards, as well as a thorough technical assessment. Upon signing the contract, Mr. Itoh said that “we valued technical assessment in the system selection project, however, it is true that we were concerned about being the first [Japanese] user, especially in the ship hull system. We therefore confirmed SENER attitude toward Japanese market, especially in regard to the maintenance, we directly requested secured cooperation and got their promise. In the future, starting from setting up the super-user team and applying sequentially the system to new ships, we aim at a speedy implementation by accumulating system improvements. Seeking a practical system for Sanoyas actual operation, the challenge has only begun.”

The first group of Sanoyas super-users will start their advanced training in late June at Tres Cantos. The Implementation plan spans a period of four years, between 2007 and 2010, during which period a steadily growing number of seats and services will be supplied. SENER Okayama office will provide intensive local support when the system enters into real production at Mizushima Works and Shipyard. Using this new contract as a springboard, SENER will continue to put all their effort into making FORAN the design and production system of reference in the Japanese shipbuilding market.
