Vuyk Engineering moves to ShipConstructor software

Vessel design firm Vuyk Engineering has announced that it is to adopt SSI’s ShipConstructor software across its operations.

The transition from its previous design tools will enable the company to leverage digital twin technologies and create product models more effectively. Using ShipConstructor, Vuyk will move to a more integrated design approach, digitalising General Arrangement plans, ship weight determination, and allowing for 3D visualisation.

Mechanical equipment design can be integrated into vessel designs, streamlining the exchange of basic design information, and supporting access to technologies like virtual reality (VR) for design reviews and 3D vessel classification.

“The adoption of ShipConstructor marks a significant milestone in our journey towards our digital transformation,” said Sander Bot, Department Manager Vessel Design at Vuyk Engineering.

“This transition not only enhances our design and operational capabilities but also aligns with our goal to always look for innovative solutions that meet our clients’ unique needs.”
