Six Tee projects include floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels; jack-ups; semi-submersibles; drill ships; offshore fixed platforms; pipe-laying/derrick barges; sub-sea pipelines; offshore support vessels and a variety of merchant ships.
SmartMarine 3D provides a multi-discipline, integrated and seamless design environment that will facilitate work sharing between Six Tee's Singapore, Tianjin and Shanghai offices. The design software has proven to reduce costs and shorten project schedules for shipbuilders and offshore design firms alike. It couples engineering, automatic drawings generation, production planning and manufacturing.
