Software for Norwegian Shipbuilding
Increasingly, Norwegian firms have been using software from Canadian company SSIto design and engineer a variety of ships. SSI develops ShipConstructor software, an AutoCAD based CAD/CAM program, as well as EnterprisePlatform, a tool for sharing Engineering data with other systems.

The Standard for Workboat Design
The fact that these Norwegian companies have chosen SSI software is not surprising. More workboats are designed and engineered with SSI’s software than with any other shipbuilding application on the market. See examples.
Norwegian companies are often involved in designing vessels with high levels of complexity. A good example of this is the Ro-Arctic from Skipskompetanse. The Ro-Arctic is a live fish carrier with live-support water treatment systems. This involves circulation, water cleaning, oxygenating, disinfection and automatic washing of tanks and piping, all designed in such a way as to ensure low stress and a high degree of care for animal welfare.

The Value of 3D
Due to these complex requirements, Skipskompetanse works with the owner to design vessels “inside-out” around the valuable cargo. To do that efficiently and effectively calls for a 3D software application such as SSI’s ShipConstructor because a 3D realistic visualization makes it easier to understand where everything should go.
Speed to proficiency
A key reason why Norwegian companies chose SSI’s ShipConstructor software is because it is built on a familiar AutoCAD foundation and Autodesk platform, enabling companies to have their staff members be more quickly and continually productive than any other shipbuilding software.
