Leenaars Marine & Offshore Design BV
- Shortened design time by 40 to 50 percent
- Doubled productivity of engineers
- Cut design weight by 15 to 20 percent
- Reduced lost ship days, saved customers money
Leenaars Marine & Offshore Design BV has become a leader in creating innovative designs for ships, offshore platforms, and marine equipment by consistently meeting the maritime industry’s needs for more than 30 years. The firm used to contract its analysis work, but in 2007, it decided to do its own simulations to save time and investigate potential innovations.
Leenaars Marine & Offshore Design chose SolidWorks Premium software to take advantage of integrated CAD and simulation capabilities. Specifically, the design consultancy wanted to incorporate simulation results as part of the design process, and use the same model for presentations and renderings, design, and simulation. By selecting SolidWorks Premium, Leenaars Marine & Offshore Design shortened its design time by 40 to 50 percent, doubled the productivity of its engineers, cut design weight by 15 to 20 percent, and reduced lost ship days, which saved its customers money.
