Vessels are remaining in-service longer than ever. These increasing vessel lifespans result in new challenges and opportunities for shipbuilders and operators. Join SSI at INMEX SMM India October 2nd – 5th, 2019 at stand C18 in Mumbai for a first-hand look at how the latest technologies in our industry are evolving to handle legacy formats, cost cutting pressures, and long-term vessel support.

Accessing Legacy Formats

Longer lifespans increase the odds that maintenance, repair, and refit will have to be performed without access to a digital twin or 3D information. The legacy formats that are available are often incompatible with the current systems in place, introducing risk, extending timelines, and ultimately increasing cost.

By leveraging technologies that allow legacy information to feed a current Digital Twin and allow for the current conditions of a vessel to be captured quickly and accurately, the risks of performing repair and refit on older vessels is minimized.

Cost Cutting Pressure

Cost pressures remain as important as ever. Particularly for naval shipbuilders, where fixed-price contracts are increasingly the norm. Incrementally incorporating the latest technology to improve efficiency within the shipyard, while minimizing financial and project risk requires striking a perfect balance.

We would love to see you at INMEX SMM India 2019

If these are the types of challenges your organization is struggling with, make sure to stop by stand C18 at INMEX SMM India October 2nd – 5th, 2019.
