FORAN has been used by the naval architecture firm Robert Allan LTD. in the review of the production design of 6,000 HP shallow draft pushboat for Hidrovias do Brasil, to be built in Erin Shipyard in Manaus, Brazil. Robert Allan Ltd., a Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering company based in Vancouver, Canada, signed a contract with SENER for the use of FORAN FVIEWER during this project.

In this pushboat, Ghenova Ingenieria & Ghenova Brasil are developing the complete 3D model and 2D production design. Robert Allan LTD. is providing construction support to Hidrovias do Brasil during the production engineering and construction phases and part of the company’s scope is the review of the production design that is being developed by Ghenova Ingeneria. Robert Allan LTD. is using FORAN FVIEWER for that.

FORAN FVIEWER is a solution in FORAN, developed by SENER, allowing the user to navigate around the ship 3D model and with capabilities to query the model about properties and attributes, check visual interferences and make annotations. The solution is also very useful to measure clearances and distances and to study ergonomics. Being developed in native 64 bits and taking advantage of the latest graphic cards capabilities, the benefit is that FORAN FVIEWER can handle in an efficient way huge amount of data.

SENER and Robert Allan LTD. hope to keep collaborating for future projects. In this regard, SENER is playing an important role in the shipbuilding CAD/CAM/CAE field in North America.
