Marine & Shipbuilding.

Charting a successful course to innovations in ship design and marine engineering with solutions for electrification and emissions reduction that maximize cost efficiencies

Marine Industry Innovation

From realizing green shipping and improving vessel efficiency to meeting new regulations, controlling lifecycle costs, and adapting to changing shipping patterns – the challenges are many. New approaches such as using digitalization and virtualization solutions, employing robotics and additive manufacturing, and increasing the use of composite materials are springing up to meet these challenges.

If you are looking for software for ship structural analysis, lifecycle cost management, or offshore structural analysis, or cutting edge solutions for model-based simulation, design collaboration, and digitalization, Maya HTT and Siemens have many offerings for ship design software and other tools you need to deploy new technologies.

Since much of commercial shipping remains diesel-powered, rising fuel costs and environmental impacts are top considerations. How can a solution for virtualization help? Simcenter Amesim is being used both in the design phase and during ship operations to reduce fuel consumption.

During ship design, Amesim can evaluate the real-world performance of various drivetrain alternatives including diesel on demand, hybrid, diesel mechanical, and diesel mechanical assist. It is also used to predict performance in response to changes in hull or propeller designs.

For operational ships, Amesim can compare sea routes in view of predicted weather conditions. By running “what-if” scenarios that yield data including expected fuel consumption and estimated time of arrival (ETA), you can evaluate alternate sea routes to identify routes that will reduce fuel consumption and shorten transit times.

Marine Digitalization and Digital Twins

At both commercial and naval shipyards, shipbuilders face a hyper-competitive landscape and tight operating margins. It’s vital to improve efficiency to deliver clean, energy-efficient, safe, and reliable ships.

Ship design firms and shipbuilders are relying on advanced maritime engineering and ship design software that can support autonomous ship technology, electrification, and analytical models for structures and hydrodynamics that maximize efficiency.

More Efficient Manufacturing with Shipbuilding Automation

The drive for efficiency extends beyond the vessels themselves to cover the process of building new ships and refitting existing ones. By focusing on lifecycle cost management, model-based virtualization, and standardization of design, you can increase the efficiency of everything form early design stages through to production.

Maya HTT helps you incorporate automation and digitalization in our shipbuilding operations using comprehensive solutions for design simulation, automation, product lifecycle management (PLM), and manufacturing order management (MOM) – essentially launching a complete digital ship that can incorporate the latest technologies.
