Baku Shipyard upgrades shipbuilding software systems

Baku Shipyard in Azerbaijan has agreed a new deal to implement the ShipConstructor design and modelling software system from SSI, to support new digital workflows and improve efficiency and precision in its shipbuilding projects.

Currently, the shipyard is engaged in four major new construction projects – an oil tanker, a chemical tanker, a Roll-on/Roll-off Passenger vessel, and a dredger. The new 3D product modelling systems will initially be used to support engineering teams before being rolled out for use by other departments.

“Transitioning to an in-house technical office, after a decade using a different system, is a challenging yet crucial step,” said Samir Muradov, Engineering Manager at Baku Shipyard.

“Our adoption of SSI ShipConstructor is fundamental to our shipyard’s future success, ensuring greater control and flexibility in the shipbuilding process.”

Roll out of the new systems at the shipyard will be supported locally by NDAR, SSI’s partner in the region.

“NDAR is excited to partner with Baku Shipyard in this significant transition towards advanced shipbuilding technologies,” said Nick Danese, Founder and General Manager at NDAR.

“ShipConstructor software represents the cutting edge in shipbuilding technology, and we are confident that it will support Baku Shipyard in achieving its goals.”
