Decision follows contract win with STX Promar Shipyard for eight LPG tankers.
AVEVA Marine has been selected for implementation by GHENOVA Ingeniería, an International Engineering Company. This follows the signing of a contract between GHENOVA and STX Promar Shipyard. This contract allows the detailed engineering of eight LPG tankers for Transpetro, Petrobras’ logistics and fuel transportation company. The agreement consists of products from the AVEVA Marine portfolio (Hull, Outfitting, Cable Design) and AVEVA Global.
“This is an entirely new project for us, so it was essential to select a 3D engineering and design tool that could deliver true strategic value”, said Francisco José Cuervas, General Director, GHENOVA. “AVEVA Marine met all the requirements that the client set out, making it the ideal choice for our important LPG tanker project. The integrated AVEVA Marine applications will help us to save many hours during the design phase, allowing an efficient and accurate model to be delivered to our customer.”
Rui Miguel de Sousa, Brazilian branch Director, GHENOVA Brasil added, “The AVEVA solution was subjected to a rigorous tender process and its integrated hull and outfitting design capability stood out against the competition. It will enable us to have clash-free, production-oriented design. We are confident this will help us achieve reduced rework and deliver the highest quality designs. With concurrent global project execution we can also ensure that all sites and users have access to the latest approved data, right down to attribute details.”
