Paramarine software to be used for Naval vessel design

Rolls-Royce has chosen Paramarine software for its team of naval ship designers for offshore patrol vessels

Paramarine software, developed by QinetiQ GRC, has been selected by Rolls-Royce who are broadening their ship design capabilities.
 
Paramarine will be Rolls-Royce’s marine design software tool of choice in support of their newly formed team dedicated to the development of naval ship designs.  Rolls-Royce has been at the forefront of innovative ship design for nearly 40 years, designing over 800 vessels, used mainly in the commercial sector.
 
This new ship design team will create innovative designs for customers such as Navies, Coastguards and other maritime agencies. The primary focus will be on offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) and naval auxiliary opportunities, rather than large combatant ships such as frigates and destroyers.
 
There has been a growing trend for commercial marine technology to cross over into the naval market, delivering cost reduction and proven capability. Government customers are looking for cost effective and innovative ships. Rolls-Royce, who are already experienced in ship design, coupled to the world’s largest marine product portfolio, will offer integrated ‘whole ship’ solutions suited to the demanding roles of the world’s Navies.
 
Peter MacLeod, Capability Manager, Naval Ship Design, Rolls-Royce said
 
“Naval ship design is a new entity at Rolls-Royce and it is vital at the outset to have world class software tools, processes and people in order to deliver winning designs. We selected Paramarine based not only on its extensive and proven capabilities in supporting naval ship design but also because of its excellent reputation in the market. Specifically we selected Paramarine for its market leading early stage design capabilities, “
 
Paramarine is based on over 20 years’ experience in marine design. Thousands of concept vessels have been modelled and their stability analysed using Paramarine. Paramarine is used by many of the world’s leading commercial and naval shipbuilders and ship designers, as well as some of the leading universities including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and University College London.

Vittorio Vagliani, Managing Director, QinetiQ GRC said, “Rolls-Royce were looking for a software tool that would be able to speed up the whole process of early stage ship design whilst mitigating risk as their intention is to develop new projects from scratch in short timeframes. Paramarine is ideally suited to meet this challenge. We are very pleased to have been selected by Rolls-Royce and look forward to supporting them in this new venture,”
