CAMBRIDGE, UK -- SPP Shipbuilding has signed a multi-million dollar agreement with AVEVA to supply of AVEVA Marine design solutions to the company's three shipyards.

SPP has the capacity to build 12 ships per year with shipyards based in Tongyoung and Gosong, South Korea. With the opening of its third yard in Sacheon, South Korea, it will increase its capacity to build 41 ships per year by the end of 2008, and 100 ships per year by 2010.

"With plans to increase capacity and to enter the niche chemical and oil tanker markets, we need the complete set of integrated marine design and production applications combined with open and flexible lifecycle management solutions that AVEVA provides to ensure the most productive, risk-free way to design and build ships," says YongHee, Nam, SPP Shipyard managing director.
