Signing of the Contract, from the right: Verónica Alonso, SENER North America Area Manager, Kenneth R. Munroe, Eastern Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Rodrigo Pérez, SENER Project Manager and two Eastern IT specialists.

Eastern Shipbuilding Group, Inc. entered into an agreement with Spain's Sener Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A. (Sener) for the license to use the Foran CAD/CAM System, developed by Sener, in their shipbuilding activities. With this, Eastern has taken the steps to enlarge a ship design office at its shipyards in Panama City, Florida, USA.


The agreement includes the implementation of the complete Foran System comprising: Forms Generation, General Arrangement & Naval Architecture, Hull Structure, Machinery & Outfitting, Electrical Design and Advanced Design &Drafting.


Engineers and designers from Eastern have received on-site training in all the disciplines of the Foran System during the summer. After that, Eastern has started a new project in Foran, a multipurpose supply vessel of 340 feet, being the first of two units, with the first objective of improving the quality of the design and to avoid very costly errors during production.


Eastern is a company devoted to the shipbuilding activity since 1976. Starting with the construction of fishing vessels and now more focused in offshore supply vessels, the company offers a great expertise and capability of complying with the most exigent customer demands. Foran will be a strategic business application for support and further improvement of the ship design, construction and integration activities at their two shipbuilding sites, both in Florida.
