Navigating complexity with piping industry specific focus
The engagement between PipeCloud and Damen Naval manifests a careful navigation through the tight focus of industrial piping with in-depth shipbuilding experience. The software solution, chosen by Damen Naval, is specifically constructed to address the particularities and challenges that arise from the typically unique nature of each pipeline and prefabricate in production.
Jarno Soinila, CEO at PipeCloud, noted, “Damen Naval’s choice to implement PipeCloud is encouraging and reflects our consistent aim to provide tangible, practical solutions for industries that involve pipe production. It’s gratifying to assist a company so deeply rooted in naval shipbuilding history.”
While this news highlights a meaningful stride in naval shipbuilding, it’s essential to acknowledge that PipeCloud’s software, while beneficial to Damen Naval, is not confined to this industry. The platform is robustly applicable across various industries involving piping in their operations, subtly weaving through the complexities presented by the idiosyncrasies of each pipeline and prefabricate. PipeCloud endeavors to bridge digitalization and traditional manufacturing processes, considering the unique requirements and efficiencies inherent in each project.
Founded in 2018, PipeCloud has developed a reputation for aligning digital solutions with the maritime and additional pipe-utilizing industries. Its proprietary software harmonizes the intricacies of pipe fabrication with the efficiencies of digital technology, providing a balanced, pragmatic solution to the complexities encountered in this sphere.
