Keppel FELS leads the Offshore division of Keppel Offshore & Marine, and is the global leader in the design, construction and repair of mobile offshore rigs. Keppel Offshore & Marine is involved in offshore rig design, construction and repair, ship repair and conversion, and specialized shipbuilding. Headquartered in Singapore, it is one of the largest offshore and marine groups in the world, with over 20 yards and offices worldwide.
Keppel FELS has purchased act/cut, Alma’s nesting solution, for use in conjunction with Intergraph’s SmartMarine® 3D for the engineering processes. act/cut allows fully-automatic, semi-automatic, or even manual nesting for optimum usage of material, which contributes directly to the efficiency and productivity of Keppel FELS.
As part of their alliance program, Intergraph and Alma offer a tight bi-directional integration between act/cut and SmartMarine 3D. This allows traceability of information, enabling users to keep track of specific details, such as which particular parts are nested on which sheet of material.
