Glosten using Nupas-Cadmatic software for Vigor’s Alaska Class Ferry project
Seattle-based naval architecture consultancy Glosten has joined the list of North American companies utilizing Nupas-Cadmatic, a CAD/CAM engineering software system for the marine and offshore industry. Glosten will utilize the software to complete the detail design of Vigor’s Alaska Class Ferry, a two-vessel project at their Ketchikan Alaska shipyard.
Glosten said a few features of Nupas-Cadmatic made it the best choice for the naval architecture firm. Firstly, the tool was developed in conjunction with world-class shipyards and incorporates the collective experience of a large international user base. Secondly, the tool’s parametric modeling capabilities and embedded shipbuilding resources are a powerful way to reduce design hours.
"Our software has already seen great success for international designers and shipbuilders," remarked Jan Broos, Senior Sales Manager for Nupas-Cadmatic. "The Glosten-Vigor project will be an ideal ground to demonstrate how we can best serve the unique American shipbuilding industry."
“516 customers in 41 countries can’t be wrong," stated Joe Corvelli, Senior Vice President and head of Vigor Fab. "Our project demands a proven, accurate tool to streamline production for our team and to ensure our client gets a superb vessel."
The detail design projects tackled by Glosten's Production Services team have steadily grown in size and complexity since the team's inception in 2008. "This project presents a great opportunity for our Production Services team to step into a worldclass detail design environment," asserted Glosten President Jay Edgar.
