Page 26| AVEVA PIPELINE | 2010 Issue 2 DSIC is part of China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation ( CSIC), one of the two state- owned shipbuilding enterprises in China. Since the establishment of The People's Republic of China, it has designed and built over 2,700 vessels, including China's first ship for export, and the country's first super- large crude oil tankers. DSIC has spearheaded the development of China's shipbuilding industry. In April 1990, DSIC's Dalian Shipyard was the first customer in China to subscribe to AVEVA marine solutions. Today, DSIC has successfully designed and constructed many large- scale vessels, such as 300,000 dwt VLCCs and 110,000 dwt product oil tankers, using AVEVA marine solutions. Ma Yande, Director of the Design and Research Institute, Dalian Shipbuilding Industry, has this to say about why DSIC implemented AVEVA marine solutions as early as 1990: ' DSIC has always been in the front line of China's shipbuilding industry. We require the most efficient shipbuilding tools for our advanced and automated production. DSIC realised early on that, to increase design efficiency and improve production information quality, we needed a specialised 3D shipbuilding system with integrated hull and outfitting applications. ' AVEVA's solutions are today used in all disciplines for the design and production of all our commercial vessels and offshore products. The two most important benefits are the very accurate production information derived from the 3D ship model and the automatic clash checks. Previously, we faced many problems on site, very late in the production phase. These problems are now detected much earlier, thus reducing cost. This has led to considerably reduced lead times for the design and building period of each ship.' Ma Yande concluded, ' To further increase productivity, we plan to migrate soon to AVEVA Marine. Key technical staff have already been trained in the application, and we are now producing a migration plan.' Visit www. dsic. com. cnfor more information. Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co., Ltd., ( DSIC), located in Dalian, Liaoning, China, has enjoyed a history of more than 100 years. It is now the largest shipbuilding company in China, employing over 15,000 employees and with a product line- up comprising VLCCs, chemical tankers, container ships, ro- ro vessels, floating production storage tankers, semi- submersible drilling platforms, jack- up drilling platforms and many other types of high- tech, high value- added ships and marine engineering products.

AVEVA PIPELINE | 2010 Issue 2 | Page 27 CSSC Guangzhou Longxue Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., owned by China State Shipbuilding Corporation ( CSSC), is the latest and most modern shipbuilding enterprise in south China. The company is located at the mouth of the Pearl river on Longxue island, in the Nansha district of Guangzhou. The shipyard covers an area of more than 2.5 million square metres, with two large dry docks equipped with four 600- tonne gantry cranes and the most modern and advanced fabrication workshops. The shipyard now has the capacity to build 300,000 dwt oil tankers and bulk carriers. The first phase of setting up the new shipyard allows a total shipbuilding capacity of 20 vessels of 2.12 million dwt per year. When the planned expansion projects are completed, the shipbuilding capacity will be up to 3.5 million dwt per year with, in total, 8,000 employees by 2012. ' Our focus is on building commercial ships such as VLCCs, VLOCs, LPG and LNG carriers. In addition, the shipyard plans to set up an offshore division in the near future, and it will also perform repair work,' explains Wang Dongyi, Director, Technical Center, CSSC Guangzhou Longxue Shipbuilding. ' In total, more than 2,000 college graduates and students from technical schools have been recruited by the shipyard. These engineers have then been further trained in shipbuilding processes through practice at other CSSC shipyards in the Guangzhou area before joining our shipyard. ' 90 managers have been sent to study shipbuilding processes and techniques at Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding Co., Ltd., a very experienced user of AVEVA marine solutions. ' AVEVA Marine was successfully implemented in 2008. The application was selected because of the very good reputation of its predecessor, Tribon, among Chinese shipbuilders. After a very short start- up and training period, we took on our first project, the design and production of a 80,000 dwt Panamax bulk carrier to be delivered at the end of 2010. So far, 150 engineers have been trained in AVEVA Marine. The production information derived from AVEVA Marine has been very accurate and we are very satisfied with these results. First steel for this project was cut at the end of July 2009. We regard AVEVA Marine as a more open system than Tribon. ' To further improve the management processes for design, project execution, materials management, and the approval processes, we implemented AVEVA NET in 2009. ' At the moment, we are using AVEVA solutions in the building of four 308,000 dwt VLCCs, eight 230,000 dwt VLOCs and four 82,000 dwt bulk carriers for Chinese owners.'
