Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), one of the world’s leading shipbuilders, has used Intergraph Smart 3D to design the world’s largest containership for Mitsui O.S.K Lines, Ltd. (MOL), surpassing 20,000 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU).
With a length of 400 meters, breadth of 58.8 meters, and draft of 32.8 meters, the vessel is classified as an Ultra Large Containership that can transport 20,150 containers. It was christened the MOL Triumph and delivered to the owner on March 27, 2017. The MOL Triumph is the first of four 20,150 TEU vessels SHI is building for MOL.
Smart 3D was used to execute the detailed and production design of the Triumph, as well as to produce installation and fabrication drawings, and bills of materials for SHI’s procurement team. Smart 3D’s top-down planning & estimation and assembly planning & simulation modules were also employed on this project.
SHI has enjoyed the benefits of Smart 3D since 2004, recording schedule reductions of up to three months on major shipbuilding projects, thanks to the solution’s intelligent early design features.
“Successful construction of the MOL Triumph is further evidence of SHI's technological excellence and our longstanding partnership with Intergraph PP&M,” said Mun-Keun Ha, vice president at SHI. “Furthermore, we were able to complete construction on-time and with zero incidents, thanks to Smart 3D’s optimized design features.”
Intergraph PP&M President Mattias Stenberg said, “SHI has been leading the market with optimized hull and outfitting design and record-breaking containership size. Intergraph is proud to be a technological partner in this journey.”
