Foran Employed in Production Design of Pushboat
ROBERT ALLAN Ltd., a Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Company based in Vancouver, Canada signed a contract with SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A. (SENER) for the use of FORAN FVIEWER during this project.
The 6000 HP Shallow Draft Pushboat was designed by ROBERT ALLAN LTD. for Hidrovias do Brasil. GHENOVA INGENIERIA & GHENOVA BRASIL are developing the complete 3D Model and 2D Production Design. ROBERT ALLAN LTD. is providing construction support to Hidrovias do Brasil during the Production Engineering and Construction Phases. Part of ROBERT ALLAN LTD’s scope is the review of the production design that is being developed by Ghenova Ingeneria. ROBERT ALLAN LTD. is using FORAN Viewer to aid in the review of the 3D production model.
FORAN FVIEWER is a solution in FORAN, developed by SENER, allowing the user to navigate around the ship 3D model and with capabilities to query the model about properties and attributes, check visual interferences and make annotations. The solution is also very useful to measure clearances and distances and to study ergonomics. Being developed in native 64 bits thus allowing the use of more than 4 GB RAM, and taking advantage of the latest graphic cards capabilities, the benefit is that FORAN Fviewer can handle in an efficient way huge amount of data.
FORAN Fviewer has helped ROBERT ALLAN LTD. in the review of the 3D production design and has proved to be a useful tool, helping with the successful completion of the project. SENER and ROBERT ALLEN LTD. hope to keep collaborating for future projects.
