Ersin Koyunoglu, CAD Application Engineering, IT Department, RMK Marine said:

We were looking for a software solution that had extensive manoeuvring functionality that would be easy to use and integrate into our existing systems. We selected Paramarine based on its track record and its proven capabilities gained from operating in both the commercial and defence markets.”

Paramarine is based on over 20 years’ experience in marine design. Thousands of concept vessels have been modelled and their stability analysed using Paramarine. The software is used by many of the world’s leading shipbuilders and ship designers, as well as some of the world’s leading universities including the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and University College London.

The launch of the latest version of Paramarine has further extended and enhanced the softwares functionality with enhancements to its reporting, concurrent design and documentation capabilities.

Vittorio Vagliani, Managing Director, QinetiQ GRC said:

The sale of Paramarine to RMK Marine represents another step in the take up of our solution in the commercial market. In addition to establishing ourselves in Turkey it demonstrates the increasingly global nature of our extensive customer base. Over the last twelve months we have added over 12 new customers in both the defence and the commercial sector
