COSCO has previously delivered numerous offshore projects using Intergraph’s SmartMarine Enterprise software, and will expand its use of the applications following the new deal.
“We have been using Intergraph technology for many years, and we are pleased to extend our long-term strategic relationship with Intergraph,” said COSCO, in a statement.
“We have achieved great success through the implementation of SmartMarine Enterprise for our engineering projects, and we are confident that SmartMarine Enterprise will continue to deliver tremendous value to our company.”
The package features the SmartMarine 3D offshore and shipbuilding design system, which uses knowledge-based and rule-driven technologies to improve delivery schedules and offers improved detail and manufacturing design productivity of up to 30 per cent.
“Since first implementing SmartMarine 3D in 2006, COSCO Shipyard Group has seen significant gains in productivity and quality through the use of our next-generation, rule-driven offshore and shipbuilding design solution,” said Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president.
“Intergraph is a long-standing, trusted partner in China, and we are pleased to see the tremendous success COSCO is having with our solutions.”
