Pertamina to Use FORAN FVIEWER to Review Ship Designs

sener_logoMADRID, Spain, July 6, 2015 – FORAN has been chosen by state-owned company Pertamina to review the design of their future oil product carrier ships, under construction in a shipyard with the FORAN System. Pertamina, a company based in Jakarta, Indonesia, signed a contract with SENER Ingeniería y Sistemas S.A. (SENER) for the use of the FORAN FVIEWER application in the coming years.

070615_FORAN FVIEWERFVIEWER is part of the FORAN System, developed by SENER, and conducts an immersive navigation throughout the 3D model of the ship, allowing to query the model for properties and attributes, checking visual interferences and making annotations. The solution has the necessary capabilities to measure clearances and distances and to study ergonomics in complex areas such as the engine room. FVIEWER can handle very efficiently even the big and dense scenes from the complete ship.

FVIEWER is a key tool in the review of the 3D design for Pertamina, who has experienced the power and ease of use of the acquired solution. SENER and Pertamina hope to keep collaborating for future projects.

SENER, through this agreement with the Indonesian giant, increases its role in Asia Pacific as a key partner of CAD/CAM tools for the ship design and production in the region.


SENER is a private engineering and technology group founded in 1956, which seeks to offer its clients the most advanced technological solutions and which enjoys international recognition, thanks to its independence and its commitment to innovation and quality. SENER has more than 5,500 professionals at its centers in Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, South Korea, Chile, China, Colombia, the United Arab Emirates, Spain, United States, India, Japan, Mexico, Poland, Portugal and the UK. The group has an operating revenue of €1,218 billion (2013 figures).

SENER engages in the specific activities of engineering and construction, and also has industrial holdings in companies involved in energy and environment, as well as in aeronautics. SENER’s engineering and construction division has become one of the world’s benchmark companies in the aerospace, infrastructures and transport, power and process, and marine sectors.


FORAN is a totally integrated computer system specifically developed for the design, production and engineering of ships. It comprises several main packages (hull forms definition, naval architecture, hull structure, outfitting, electrical), a number of common modules (build strategy, drafting, walk-through design review, collaborative engineering), links with production equipment (cutting machines, bending machines, robotic systems, etc.), interfaces to management systems and its own integrated development environment.
