AVEVA has updated its AVEVA E3D design software to specifically address the needs of the marine sector.

The software is said to combine the latest three-dimensional graphics and user interface technologies with state-of-the-art data management. It increases vessel design and accelerates retrofits of ships to reduce emissions. The new capabilities come in response to the IMO 2020 emissions regulations, and provide new tools to anticipate market needs, offering new capabilities and greater efficiency.

The company says that shipbuilding excellence is heavily reliant on design-to-production, agility and efficiency across all project streams, effective resource management and design quality leading to right-first-time, error-free production. These new capabilities tailored to the marine sector will address these requirements, as they include the first release of the AVEVA Hull Basic Design Module. This module is used for the preliminary design of a ship's hull structure, and supports key decisions regarding naval architectural characteristics, space management, outfitting design and drawings.

Ravi Gopinath, COO, AVEVA, said: “With this latest software release, AVEVA is responding to the ever-growing and changing needs of ship owners and shipyards the world over. Meeting sustainability goals, maximising business agility and improving operational performance calls for integrated design and engineering tools that can streamline the process, improve speed and remove cost and complexity to rapidly address these market imperatives. Using our new software, marine operators will now be able to realise up to 40% gains in engineering efficiency while moving to operating paradigms that will ultimately help protect the environment.”
