ADELAIDE, Australia, June 14 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- AVEVA Group plc (LSE:AVV), one of the world's leading providers of engineering data and design IT systems to the plant, power and marine industries, announced that ASC, amongst Australia's most advanced naval warship and submarine builders, has successfully migrated the digital model of the Collins Class submarines from a legacy system to AVEVA Marine.

In 2003, ASC signed a multi-billion dollar Through-Life Support (TLS) contract with the Defence Materiel Organisation for design enhancements, maintenance and support of the Collins Class Submarines.

Following this, ASC recognised the need to further improve their ability to manage legacy data as well as new information arising from the TLS program. AVEVA offered them the opportunity to automate a transfer of the data model from their legacy systems into AVEVA Marine. This has allowed ASC to reuse the original Collins Class design data in an optimal way while providing the most advanced solutions for marine engineering of new programs.

Peter Finch, President, AVEVA Asia Pacific, said: "AVEVA Marine's open architecture enables integration with other third party solutions ensuring interoperability. This is especially important in the naval sector as a project's lifecycle from design to decommissioning may span over four decades. During this period, there are bound to be multiple systems used to design, build, maintain and upgrade the project."

Mr. Finch continued: "AVEVA Marine has been used in advanced navy projects in the US, Europe and Asia Pacific. It is well-suited to complex naval projects and supports global collaboration with multiple stakeholders and subcontractors in a secured environment."

Jack Atkinson, General Manager Design and Engineering, ASC, said: "AVEVA has been fast to respond to our needs. ASC continues to build a strong partnership with AVEVA, and this will ensure the ongoing success of ASC current and future projects."
