Colombo Dockyard Selects the Autoship System
December 1, 2008 - Autoship Systems Corporation (ASC) of Vancouver, Canada a leading supplier of marine engineering software announces that Colombo Dockyard of Sri Lanka has implemented 'The AutoSHIP WORKS Package' which will allow them take a new project through the complete design spiral - from hull lines through to nesting parts. The Autoship Systems Corporation is the #1 supplier of marine CAD/CAM programs to Tier II shipyards and leading naval architectures world-wide.
Colombo Dockyard PLC established its operations in 1974 and is now Sri Lanka's largest engineering facility leading in the business of ship repairs, shipbuilding, and offshore engineering. In 1993, collaboration was made with Onomichi Dockyard Co. Ltd of Japan, a medium scale ship builder. The exchange of technology and the sharing of expertise have served to further enhanced Colombo Dockyard's engineering capabilities.
Colombo Dockyard shipbuilding activities, which commenced with the construction of small Tug Boats, medium sized Speed Boats and barges, have now been transformed into a major line of business.
Colombo Dockyard's ability to manufacture diverse vessels, meeting the stringent requirements stipulated by International Classification Societies, while surpassing the expectations of its clientele has established a niche market of a range of customized vessels. Construction of aluminum hull vessels is one of their specialties. They have built many types of vessels including ultra fast crafts, patrol crafts, and coastal surveillance vessels.
Currently, its order book extends to 2009/2010 with many new constructions such as, anchor handlers & supply vessels, passenger vessels etc. It is expected that the use of the Autoship System will shorten the time used for engineering on these projects, allowing Colombo Dockyard to easier meet their delivery schedules.
