Computer-aided design software provider AVEVA today reports that it has won a contract to supply its systems to Penglai Zhongbai Jinglu Shipbuilding.
The Chinese shipyard will use its AVEVA Marine design software to aid in the construction of vessels following its implementation.
"We will benefit from shorter design cycles, improved design accuracy and reduced wastage in production," said technical director Shiwen Jiang.
"AVEVA Marine's large user base gives us the widest possible choice of partners, as well as the ability to recruit from a pool of highly skilled engineers and designers who already know the AVEVA software."
Paul Eveleigh, EVP and head of Greater China, AVEVA, said: "While AVEVA Marine delivers immediate business benefits, it is also an investment in the future, since it gives shipbuilders the tools to address more complex project opportunities in a very difficult market."
