Leading Japanese Shipbuilders Extend use of AVEVA Marine Solutions

KUALA LUMPUR, November 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AVEVA , the leading supplier of engineering IT systems for the plant and marine industries, announced that key Japanese shipbuilders - Namura Shipbuilding, Universal Shipbuilding Corporation, Shin Kurushima Dockyard, Sumitomo Heavy Industries Marine & Engineering and Imabari Shipbuilding Group - have signed contracts worth over USD2.5 million to extend their use of AVEVA marine solutions. The contracts were made in the first half of AVEVA's financial year ending 30 September 2008.

AVEVA marine solutions were first used in Japan by Kawasaki Shipbuilding Corporation in 1994. Kawasaki has since expanded the use of AVEVA marine solutions to its commercial and naval yards. To date, there are more than twenty Japanese customers who actively subscribe to AVEVA's shipbuilding solutions.

Peter Finch, President of AVEVA Asia Pacific, said:

"With these contract extensions, Japanese shipbuilders have demonstrated the confidence shipbuilders have in our solutions; which provide efficient design, engineering and construction capabilities to more than 80% of the world's top 50 shipyards. With AVEVA marine solutions, shipbuilders reduce costs, accelerate timescales and maximise performance, rising above the challenges of a global economic slowdown."
