The offshore industry comprises two industries, the offshore oil and gas industry and offshore wind energy industry. In these industries, offshore platforms used for drilling and extracting gas and oil, offshore ships (e.g. drill ships), semi-submersible rigs and platform supply vessels, are indispensable. These platforms and ships can be designed easily with CADMATIC Marine Design software. CADMATIC software was created by engineers, for engineers; with the goal of making the work of every engineer and manager involved in the design and production processes as easy and efficient as possible.
Regardless whether you are engineering an offshore platform or ship, it all starts with Initial Design, followed by Basic Design, Detailed Design and finally ends with Production Information. Within all of these phases, CADMATIC software for offshore offers you excellent tools to do the design quickly and accurately. One of these tools is the CADMATIC Weld Manager, an excellent tool that greatly assists production managers and is obligatory in the offshore building industry. It enables offshore builders to integrate welding processes into the work breakdown structure, provide detailed instructions to welders during construction and trace the status of welds throughout the entire life cycles of projects.
In addition, the unique CADMATIC platform for combined data loading from different applications and databases with the 3D model as interface, creates a hub for information management. The powerful information management solution eShare can be used for design and review purposes, asset management, maintenance tasks, inspection, change management, safety and operation control etc.
Many loyal customers use CADMATIC software for their offshore industry projects. Drydocks World Dubai is one of these customers. CADMATIC developed the weld manager functionality further in cooperation with Drydocks World Dubai, where the tool is used on a daily basis. Sembcorp Marine has used CADMATIC software for many years and has, amongst others, used it to engineer several semi-submersible well intervention vessels for Helix. Another customer that is successfully using CADMATIC software for their offshore projects is Chalmers.
