Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries extends application of next-generation 3D engineering technology to its offshore projects.
SHI has been a longtime user of the industry-leading solution, deploying it in full production within its Shipbuilding division, and has now extended the use of SmartMarine 3D for its offshore projects.
SmartMarine 3D's automated, rule-based technology has enabled SHI to achieve its objective of delivering a higher volume of the most complex and technically advanced vessels on the market today.
Due to the success of SmartMarine 3D for its shipbuilding projects, SHI decided to implement the next-generation solution for its offshore projects as well. SHI deployed SmartMarine 3D successfully for its pilot project, and has since applied the Intergraph solution for its current offshore projects. SmartMarine 3D has delivered significant productivity gains by helping SHI to streamline its design process, reducing production man-hours and project costs.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "We are pleased to further extend our partnership with SHI, one of the world's leading engineering companies. Intergraph has been working closely with SHI to continue enhancing SmartMarine 3D for the industry, and SHI's expansion of SmartMarine 3D into its Offshore division will help SHI deliver increased safety, quality and productivity for both its offshore and marine projects."
