FORAN has been the shipbuilding CAD/CAM system in the design and production of the Stril Luna vessel, built by Astilleros Gondán and delivered to the Norwegian shipowner Simon Møkster Shipping. Stril Luna, an advanced offshore platform supply vessel (PSV), will navigate in northern waters of the North Sea, charter operated by the oil company Statoil, which belongs to the Norwegian state.
With the basic design developed by Rolls Royce Marine, named as project UT 776 WP, the vessel has a length of 91.7m, a beam of 20m and it is prepared with the most innovative technology for navigating in extreme conditions. It is worth to mention its advanced capability with a fully integrated bridge, equipped with touch screams.
Stril Luna is the second unit delivered by Gondan to the Norwegian shipowner, who received the Stril Merkur from the shipyard in 2011, a 97m-length vessel currently operating (rescue, salvage, cargo, …) in offshore platforms in the North Sea by Statoil too.
"FORAN is a totally integrated system, fully customised to the production facilities in Gondan, so the vessel has been done successfully", said Javier Llaneza, Technical Office Manager, after the delivery.
FORAN, developed by SENER, is a shipbuilding-oriented CAD/CAM System used in shipyards and design offices over the world. One of them is Gondan, a shipyard at the forefront in shipbuilding.
