A complete FORAN package has been installed in GYOE, including Initial Design, Hull Structure, Machinery & Outfitting, and Drafting & Mechanical CAD.  Engineering personnel were given a hands-on training on different modules of the software, from United Force Corporation (UFC) local support members, and now the FORAN System is being used for their current ongoing design: a supply vessel for Tidewater operator, with azimuth Diesel-electric propulsion which is their first hybrid propulsion and their first FORAN ship. The scope of FORAN use covers virtually all disciplines. The vessel is characterized for its high loading efficiency and very good comfort, with capacity for 60 people. Main particulars are: LOA 66 m, beam 20 m, depth 5.9 m and max. draft (about) 4.3 m. The service speed is 13kt and the working deck area is 400 m2.

 

The Technical Director Mr. Changgeng Li said “This is the first supply vessel of Yuexin that uses electrical propulsion and it is the first vessel of Yuexin to be designed with FORAN system. FORAN system is been used in all disciplines. The vessel has a high loading efficiency and very good comfort with capacity of carrying 60 crews. The vessel is planned to be delivered in July 2013.” And, Mr. Luis García, SENER Marine Business Unit Manager after the sign of the contract said "We wish YUEXIN a fast success in the use of FORAN, taking a leader position in the shipbuilding race. There´s no better advertising than a winner´s story".
