ESG launches first vessel designed with FORAN

On 6 November, Eastern Shipbuilding Group (ESG) will launch the HARVEY SUB-SEA, the first vessel designed in the shipyard with the FORAN CAD/CAM System, developed by the engineering and technology group SENER. The Multi-Purpose Support Vessel (MPSV), the first of a series of two, has a length of 103.7m, beam of 22.3m and depth of 8.92m. It is regulated by ABS/USCG/SOLAS DP2 DE Z-Drive MPSV and will operate in the US Gulf of Mexico for HARVEY Gulf International Marine. SENER and ESG signed an agreement for the complete implementation of FORAN in the year 2013. FORAN was successfully implemented in all design and production disciplines and was adapted to fulfil the US shipbuilding practices. The shipyard has improved their production time and quality, as ESG VP of Engineering, Fernando Malabet, recently declared: “Eastern Shipbuilding Group received a regulatory design package with minimal details and extensive areas to be defined and refined during the 3D development of the model. This task needed to be accomplished not only with experienced 3D modellers, but also allowing the Naval Architect to be part of the modelling process, this way filling in the blanks and properly complete the design of the vessel. This can only be achieved by using a Software like FORAN.”
