Incat adds SSI software to centralise shipbuilding data management

Tasmania’s Incat shipyard has agreed a deal to deploy the ShipConstructor design and modelling software system from SSI, to support structural modelling for two hull modules for a 130m battery-electric Ro-Pax catamaran under construction for Buquebus of Uruguay.

The application will be used to provide centralised data management capabilities and support the automation and standardisation of design outputs. The software will also offer 3D visualisation on the shop floor and provide improved materials tracking.

“Incat has always been an innovator and once again we are demonstrating our approach to advanced technology solutions by adopting ShipConstructor to support this complex project,” said Stewart Wells, Incat Technical Manager.

“SSI demonstrated an understanding of our challenges and how to effectively manage the design, modelling and data handling processes across all departments and disciplines.”

The contract additionally includes delivery of a digital twin, created from data held within ShipConstructor, to deliver an overview of the full vessel configuration for ongoing lifecycle maintenance.
