3.MAJ Shipyard, Croatia, has purchased the Tribon Shipbuilding system for design and production of ships at its shipyard in Rijeka.
To increase the yard’s automatization and efficiency, 3.MAJ Shipyard will in the first phase implement the Tribon system to achieve a highly efficient steel construction site. To support a faster interaction between the shipyard’s designers and suppliers in order to reduce man-hours and costs when searching for equipment, 3.MAJ Shipyard has signed up for Tribon.com.
3.MAJ Shipyard was founded in 1905 as the Danubius Shipyard. Until 1948, the shipyard has changed its name several times and in 1948 the shipyard got the recent name – '3.MAJ' in honor of the date (3rd May 1945) on which Rijeka was liberated.
The main production program of 3.MAJ Shipyard comprises all types of ships up to 260 m length and 50 m breadth: tankers up to 110,000 DWT, container carriers up to 4,000 TEU and bulk carriers up to 130,000 DWT. In the hundred years of its existence, the shipyard has delivered more than 625 ships of all types.
3.MAJ Shipyard today employs more than 2,700 people. With 20 ships on order – for owners from Germany, Greece, Latvia and Croatia – the order book is currently full up to the end of 2007.
