CADMATIC has signed a significant contract for the use of 3D design software with Larsen & Toubro Limited (L&T), a leading Indian technology, engineering construction and manufacturing company. L&T employs over 50,000 employees e.g in the Heavy Engineering, Shipbuilding, Oil & Gas, Petrochemical and Energy industries.
The demanding software delivery includes CADMATIC software licenses and related installation, training and maintenance services for more than 100 concurrent users in four different locations in India (Hazira, Chennai, Kattupalli and Mumbai). The company’s design, engineering and construction activities are located at L&T’s Hazira manufacturing complex and at a new greenfield shipyard in Kattupalli near Chennai. The Chennai office has been developed as the main engineering center.
The installation is the biggest CAD investment in the Indian private sector for many years and the contract represents a breakthrough for CADMATIC in India and South East Asia. The contract was concluded after comparison with all major ship design software solutions on the market.
The ship types that will be designed by L&T with CADMATIC software include high-tech vessels, and niche vessels such as specialized heavy lift cargo vessels, CNG carriers, chemical tankers as well as defence and paramilitary vessels and other role-specific vessels.
