Norwegian vessel builder Kleven turned to TECHNIA to help automate its processes and program its robots using 3D models.
“TECHNIA was best at fulfilling our requirements. We are still at the early stages of the process, but I look forward to the results"
To enhance the efficiency of the production chain from purchasing to production and delivery, Kleven has initiated a cooperation with TECHNIA (previously TechniaTranscat) concerning PLM systems.
Norwegian vessel builder Kleven, with sales of approximately NOK 3 billion, is an industrial system integrator. The company works closely with subcontractors when constructing and building sophisticated special vessels.
“We want to automate our process for steel constructions. This means that we need tools for programming our robots using 3D models. In the past, we purchased drawing services. To cope with the technology leap, we now do everything ourselves,” says Tore Roppen, responsible for Kleven’s Supply Chain.”
Every year, between seven and ten vessels leave the shipyard in Ulsteinvik and the yard in Myklebust is used for remodeling and service. Kleven has carefully analyzed the systems required by the company to fulfill requirements from the inspection agencies.
“TECHNIA was best at fulfilling our requirements. We are still at the early stages of the process, but I look forward to the results” Tore Roppen adds.
