Now the Shanghai office will use the licenses for the complete design and production engineering of the dredger. FKAB has chosen Nupas-Cadmatic for the job for its easy to learn and intelligent software. Combined with the open interface with other systems and the advantages of Nupas-Cadmatic’s eBrowser they expect to save engineering hours in the development and production. Particularly in this case, where the shipyard is using Nupas-Cadmatic as well. Since FKAB will carry out all the design and production engineering for the dual class BV & CR dredger, they will extensively use the 3D modeling and production information advantages of Nupas-Cadmatic.
