Albacore Research Becomes ShipConstructor Software

Albacore Research Ltd. (ARL), creator of the 3D Product Modeling and Production Planning software ShipConstructor™ announced the company’s new name: ShipConstructor Software Inc. (SSI). “After 15 years of ARL, we have outgrown our original company name,” says Rolf Oetter, Co-founder, President and CEO, “the shipbuilding industry talks ShipConstructor and we want to reflect that.” Today, SSI is a fast growing company with close to 40 employees, and 17 local representatives in all major continents, including an Asian subsidiary office in Singapore as well as a subsidiary office in Mobile (Alabama, United States).

"We have grown substantially over the last couple of years, not only in North America, but worldwide. ShipConstructor has become the software-of-choice for the U.S. Second-Tier Shipbuilding Industry, resulting in the funding of two intensive development programs by the National Shipbuilding Research Program (NSRP) and several Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants. We are proud that highly respected and recognized companies such as Northrop Grumman Ship Systems and Gibbs & Cox in the US, Dubai Drydocks in UAE and Austal, Australia and USA, trust ShipConstructor with their projects," adds Mr. Oetter, "and the number of ShipConstructor users worldwide is growing fast."

The ShipConstructor software suite now provides functions for curved plates, structure, pipe, HVAC, equipment, and NC-processing, and also generates sophisticated production documentation, including assembly drawings, pipe spools, and production reports.

"For the future, we plan to continue the growth of ShipConstructor, concentrating on STEP interfaces, the Common Parts Catalog (CPC), as well as Project Split and Merge. These functions will benefit shipbuilders by providing even more flexibility and enabling many players to operate on the same project. We are also in the first stages of an Electrical Package and are looking into the development of a Weld Management tool." says Mr. Oetter.
