SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY ON SHIPBUILDING HOLDING KEY ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF VIETNAM SHIPBUILDING INDUSTRY
In 2012, the Board of members also issued Resolution No. 95/NQ-CNT dated April 20, 2011 approving the outline of the scheme "Development of science and technology and design for ship of the Shipbuilding Industry Corporation in the period of 2011-2012, towards 2030" and proposing 5 science and technology tasks in the level of the Corporation in 2012 and many documents and other specific programs to develop science and technology for the Shipbuilding Industry.
After 18 years of operation (1996-2014), the Shipbuilding Industry Corporation regards the task for researching, developing science and technology as one of the key tasks and has obtained the significant achievements. From research to 3,850 DWT ship, now we able to build 6.500DWT and 11.500 DWT ship series, to serve the needs of the domestic shipping. Some series of 10.000 DWT, 22.000DWT, 34.000DWT, 53.000DWT, 4900 car tankers, 4.500m3 liquefied gas tankers, vessels for the transport of timbers, bulk cement tankers, container ships for export to 1.800TEU, etc. are some proud achievements for
About research, design, consultancy and test:
The Corporation has conducted a series of scientific research projects, testing production projects at the level of the State, Ministry and Unit, such as: "Studying the equipment and methods underlying to support big-size shipbuilding"; "Researching and selecting technology for crude oil tanker building with capacity of 100,000 tons in Vietnam"; "Studying to construct the testing pool for ship models in Vietnam"; "Improving the manufacturing technology and putting into use 120T derrick crane"; "Completing the design, and construction of 25,000 tons dock"; "Completing automation technology in the fabrication, assembly, welding of vessel shell to improve the quality of large-sized ship"; "Improving the technology of production of high quality welding materials used in shipbuilding '; "Production of a number of elements and control equipment, measurement importance on ships by standard method module and application of advanced technologies," and most recently the project of "Designing, manufacturing, fishing vessels form by steel shell with casing replacement for wooden boats for fishermen" to standardize the type of steel-hulled form to help fishermen to be eligible for vehicles on fishing offshore to achieve high productivity and reduce risk, etc.
The topics and projects focus on science and technology issues to the industry and contribute to the technology and the typical nature of breakthroughs such as automation for ship design, automatic tole cutting technology, the fundamental technology to serve large shipbuilding, the process of checking the quality of the shipbuilding, etc. and the result is various and qualified products highly appreciated by domestic and international transport providers. Vietnam Fund for Supporting Technological Creations (VIFOTEC) has awarded the first for 03 products: 11,500 tons ship for domestic transport (newly built at Bach Dang), 53.000 tons export ship (newly built in Ha Long and Nam Trieu) and welding materials specialized for shipbuilding.
At the same time, the research and application of information technology and automation is also strongly and effectively deployed in operating the business and production, management, design, consultancy and testing. ShipConstructor software has been successfully deployed on the technical design of export ships in the marking stage, using materials, shell deployment. Automation technology from design to processing changes significantly the quality and productivity of labor.
The efficiency has been achieved
- From the matter that the shipyards of
- Design and construction of structural shell of ship by computer replaces totally manual deployment and design.
- Automatically cutting by CNC cutting machine, the material details are arranged by software to perform in optimal arrangement in respect of each sheet.
- Using technology for precision on structural details which are not guaranteed for residual assembly and design for size and saving materials, labor.
- Applying welding technology fitted with ceramic lining methods to increase productivity, save time.
- Using the perspective assembly drawing of 3D, to reduce confusion, shorten assembly schedule, save space and make arrangement of piping, etc.
- Using laser survey equipment to check the size of the installation process, etc.
Advancements of science and technology has helped the shipbuilding industry (SI) of
