Albacore Research Ltd. (ARL) announced the signing of Vinashin Engineering and Technology Joint Stock Company (Vinashin E&T) as the dealer for its flagship ShipConstructor software product for the Vietnam market.
Under this agreement, Vinashin E&T will be the sales, support and training contact for ShipConstructor in Vietnam. ShipConstructor is the easy-to-use, AutoCAD-based 3D product-modeling software for the design and fabrication of complete ships and offshore structures.
“After testing ShipConstructor throughout our entire company, we were so impressed that we approached ARL about becoming a dealer,” said Mr. Nguyen Duy Hung, Director of Vinashin E&T. “Because ShipConstructor runs inside of AutoCAD and is fully scalable to clients’ needs, the software’s minimal training requirements and flexibility offer several advantages over other design software.”

“Vinashin E&T is a strong partner for ShipConstructor in the Vietnamese market”, said Mr. Rolf G. Oetter, Founder and President of ARL. “I am confident that ShipConstructor‘s capabilities combined with Vinashin E&T’s established presence as a member of the biggest shipbuilding and repair state-owned company in Vietnam will help Vietnamese builders make a great impact on the international shipbuilding arena.”
