Hyundai Heavy Industries Inks Deal with CADMATIC
South Korean shipbuilder Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Finnish software firm CADMATIC signed a technical cooperation memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of next-generation design systems.
Through the MOU signed in April, the two companies will carry out cooperation while maintaining the technology partnership to develop next-generation design systems that will be applied to the latest technologies, such as AI, Big Data analysis, advanced modeling and drawing automation. This system will be the basis of digital twins for ship design.
According to Mehryar Delalat, Director of New Business Development at CADMATIC, the company established a Korean branch (Representative Yu Seong-man) last year as well as a domestic sales and technical support system.
CEO of CADMATIC, Jukka Rantala, said, “It is not only related to data-driven shipbuilding, but also to our information management tools such as the eShare information portal to engineering, maintenance, and operation data, the eBrowser file-based 3D viewer and project review tool, as well as our eGo tablet solution. We will focus all our technologies and capabilities to provide a total solution for smart design operation at HHI.”
