Jinglu Shipbuilding chooses AVEVA technology
Plant engineering technology specialist AVEVA, based in Cambridge UK, has won a new contract with a major Chinese shipbuilder.
Jinglu Shipbuilding, one of the key shipbuilding enterprises in Shandong Province, Greater China, has signed a new contract for AVEVA Marine software to address the current, challenging market situation and to future-proof its operations.
The AVEVA technical team in China supported Jinglu Shipbuilding with a detailed evaluation exploring how AVEVA Marine would improve project efficiency and quality across the shipyard.
As a result, the company selected AVEVA Marine, providing it with the most complete software solution for its current and future shipbuilding requirements.
“AVEVA Marine was an obvious choice, due to its great reputation,” said Shiwen Jiang, technical director, Jinglu Shipbuilding.
“Naturally, we evaluated other software vendors on the market, but AVEVA is the only one that can provide such a solid reference base. Using AVEVA Marine we will benefit from shorter design cycles, improved design accuracy and reduced wastage in production.
“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. The advanced technology provided by AVEVA Marine also enables us to more easily address our changing business needs.”
Paul Eveleigh, EVP and Head of Greater China, AVEVA added: “Jinglu Shipbuilding shares many of the same technical and business challenges facing other AVEVA customers in the shipbuilding industry.
“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. AVEVA Marine is the most productive solution available to the shipbuilding industry now and in the future.”
Jinglu Shipbuilding has about 4,500 employees, of whom 400 are engineering and management personnel.
