Press Release

Visit Autoship Systems Corporation at the OTC Show

Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) is pleased to announce they will be exhibitingat the 2008 Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) from May 5th - 8th in Houston, Texas. Visit us at the Reliant Center, Booth 1917.

ASC is known for leading-edge CAD/CAM programs for vessel design and construction but also supplies state of the art customized load planning solutions and stability monitoring software.

AutoloadЃ version 6 is the latest generation of our 3D-based onboard stability and strength-simulation/monitoring program.

If the vessel has crane(s) fitted the user can turn on the 'crane layer' to simulate crane-lift operations.

The 3D view window will show the operation in real time and with correct dimensions while the operator shifts deck cargo with the crane in the 2D window.

Floating condition and stability margins are automatically updated for each shift of deck cargo or movement of the crane. All crane motion is controlled simply with the mouse or with dialogues. Outreach and capacity is checked constantly and the crane will turn red if the user tries to overload it. Clearance to deck or other cargo is monitored during each crane movement and a warning is issued if there is an interference. Autoload can handle all crane types including knuckle jib, telescopic, multiple hooks and dual lift.

The latest Autoload features a new pull down menu which shows the vessel's stability according to new Norwegian Maritime Directorate (NMD) regulations based on user input of chain tension and angle from 0 (vertical) to 90 (horizontal). Autoload will check if NMD criteria's are fulfilled for any Anchor Handling load configuration.

Autoship Systems Corporation is the leading developer of on-board stability software and marine design CAD/CAM programs. Autoload has an installed base of over 470 vessels and AutohydroЃ currently has over 1,200 installed users making it the No.1 program of its type in use across the entire marine industry.
