Sener Signs Foran Contract with Aker Yards

Tuesday, September 04, 2007
Aker Yards ASA has entered into a Contract with the Spanish company Sener Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A. for the implementation of FORAN System across the group's shipbuilding organization. The Contract was signed by Jørgen Berg (IT Vice President) on behalf of Aker Yards ASA, and by Luis Garcia (General Manager of the Marine Business Unit) on behalf of Sener. FORAN is already operating successfully at 7 sites of the group. Based on the experience using FORAN so far, Aker Yards has decided to extend the cooperation with Sener by making a FORAN Frame Contract for future investments into CAD/CAM shipbuilding solutions.

Currently, Aker Yards owns more than 350 licenses of the main FORAN packages (Hull Structure and Outfitting). As a first consequence of this Frame Contract, FORAN is being implemented in Aker Yards, Promar, a Brazilian shipyard located in Niteroi (Rio de Janeiro). Services to be provided by Sener include installation, training as well as maintenance and support.
