UDIN Engineering boosts FORAN in Korea Busan-based Unique Design and Intellectual Networks Engineering Co., Ltd. (UDIN) has recently entered into agreement with SENER Korea Engineering and Systems Co., Ltd. (SKES) for the permanent license of the FORAN System and related technical assistance.

The agreement completes a process started off in July 2013 with the integral application of FORAN on a temporary license basis to a couple of real projects carried out by UDIN: a series of medium-range tankers being built by Samsung Heavy Industries in its factory of Ningbo (China) for Greek owner Evangelos Marinakis, and a 1,200 pax ferry being built by POSCO PlanTEC in Busan for Zanzibar Government.

At present, some 200 UDIN designers are smoothly working with FORAN, finishing the above mentioned projects and starting new ones, such as another series of MR tankers for the Chinese shipbuilder Honghua and several offshore units for IHI Aichi Shipyard in Japan. More licenses are expected to be required in the near future.

UDIN has also set up a highly-efficient CAD Development Team to customize FORAN, in particular its deliverable outputs according to the diverse standards and requirements of customer shipyards. Upon the signature of the Agreement, on 10 June 2014, Jong-Ho Kim, President of UDIN, said. “It is our intention to use FORAN in all our shipbuilding and offshore projects from now on, as we trust this will help us to significantly improve our efficiency in basic, detail and production design.” Additionally, this dynamic Korean company has established a separate technical alliance with SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A. for mutual support in the field of ship design and engineering.
