BMT Defense Applies NAPA Software in New Vessel Design

Naval design and engineering company BMT Defense Services Ltd. included a software package created by maritime software house NAPA during the design process for the new logistics and support vessel (LSV) ordered by the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organization (NDLO).

Naval architects have applied NAPA for Design to the vessel's stability and hydrodynamics modeling to produce a compartmentation model that can provide hull form throughout the design process to production. The model will support the lifetime eco-efficiency of the vessel, either in combination with NAPA for Operations systems and the NAPA Loading Computer, or as a standalone system that provides vital information on the vessel when it cannot be observed.

Will Giles, the Naval Architecture Lead for BMT Defense Services, said, "NAPA's prompt and high quality technical support is extremely valuable during the tight design schedule for NDLO's new logistics and support vessel. The software's performance in complex calculations means we are able to analyze the results quickly, which frees up time for improvements to the design itself."

BMT Defense Services was named as design contractor for the $230 million contract in June 2013. The project's delivery will be supported by sister companies, BMT Reliability Consultants Ltd and BMT Isis Ltd. Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), a long term user of NAPA software systems, will construct the vessel.

Mikko Forss, Sales Manager for NAPA said, "NAPA for Design combines both sheer calculation performance and an efficient design process to produce detailed analysis at a fast pace, ensuring naval architects can deliver on this demanding new LSV project, in terms producing the vessel's design in a short timeframe.

The vessel will be built in DSME's Okpo yard and will measure 180 meters in length, 26 meters in beam, and have a displacement of over 26,000 metric tons. Delivery to the Royal Norwegian Navy is expected in September 2016.
