BMT Defence Services Applies NAPA Software in Design of …

first_imgzoom Naval design and engineering company BMT Defence Services Ltd today announced that it has applied a software package created by leading maritime software house NAPA during the design process for the new logistics and support vessel (LSV) ordered by the Norwegian Defense Logistics Organisation (NDLO).Naval architects have applied NAPA for Design to the vessel’s stability and hydrodynamics modelling to produce a compartmentation model that can provide hull form throughout the design process to production.The model will support the lifetime eco-efficiency of the vessel, either in combination with NAPA for Operations systems and the NAPA Loading Computer, or as a standalone system that provides vital information on the vessel when it cannot be observed.Will Giles, the Naval Architecture Lead for BMT Defence Services, said: “NAPA’s prompt and high quality technical support is extremely valuable during the tight design schedule for NDLO’s new logistics and support vessel. The software’s performance in complex calculations means we are able to analyze the results quickly, which frees up time for improvements to the design itself.”BMT Defence Services was named as design contractor for the $230 million contract in June 2013. The project’s delivery will be supported by sister companies, BMT Reliability Consultants Ltd and BMT Isis Ltd. Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME), a long term user of NAPA software systems, will construct the vessel.Mikko Forss, Sales Manager for NAPA said: “NAPA for Design combines both sheer calculation performance and an efficient design process to produce detailed analysis at a fast pace, ensuring naval architects can deliver on this demanding new LSV project, in terms producing the vessel’s design in a short timeframe. Unlike other packages on the market, NAPA has excellent tools to post process and analyze the results in order to understand how the design could be even further improved.”The vessel will be built in DSME’s Okpo yard and will measure 180 meters in length, 26 meters in beam, and have a displacement of over 26,000 tonnes. Delivery to the Royal Norwegian Navy is expected in September 2016.NAPA, December 12, 2013last_img read more
