Thyssen Krupp Expands AVEVA Use
AVEVA, the supplier of engineering IT systems for the plant and marine industries announced that Thyssen Krupp Marine Systems has extended its 25-year association with AVEVA by signing a new agreement that includes migration from the former Tribon system to the AVEVA Marine shipbuilding solution with all of its extended functional possibilities at the company shipyards in Kiel, Emden and Hamburg, Germany. One of the TKMS companies, Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft (HDW), has been using Tribon (and its predecessor Steerbear) since 1983. The other German shipyards of the group first started using the software system in 1994.
In the past HDW has contributed significantly to the development of the AVEVA software systems with many of the advanced production functions found in AVEVA Marine today being a direct result of this cooperation.
