Siemens partners with Navantia to digitalize shipbuilding processes

December 16, 2019 - Siemens Digital Industries Software announced its selection by Navantia, a European ship builder, as its technological partner to digitalize the company’s shipbuilding process. Using Siemens’ Xcelerator platform, Navantia will implement a digital twin for its new F-110 Frigate program, thus meeting the Spanish navy requirements. Siemens is the industrial supplier who has been able to present an end-to-end project that virtually covers the whole lifecycle process of a vessel: from the initial conception and simulation until the final services and maintenance phase. The agreement also includes the creation of a Center of Excellence of the Naval Industry in Galicia that will help drive the digital transformation and encourage collaboration between different agents.

Navantia plans to implement a variety of solutions from Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, including NX software, the Teamcenter portfolio, Siemens OpCenter software, Simcenter software and the Tecnomatix portfolio for the entire vessel lifecycle management as well as MindSphere, the cloud-based, open IoT operating system from Siemens, for data analysis. Navantia can use these solutions to help define the necessary parameters to build better ships.

Through the agreement, Siemens and Navantia will found CESENA, a Center of Excellence of the Naval Industry in Galicia, that can help drive digital transformation, develop future solutions for the naval sector and encourage collaboration between shipyards, universities, research centers, organizations, shipowners and public institutions. This alliance will help position Siemens as a solutions provider for Navantia and to the Spanish naval industry and supplier community.
