of technologies

GONDAN is noted for its skill in integrating technologies to achieve effective, practical results.
Combining resources and technological components with a variety of characteristics from different
origins is a complex task requiring in-depth analysis and the ability to adapt and coordinate,
something we specialize in.
Projects culminate in real vessels through custom designing, integrating technology
and employing smart methods of production to optimize production capacity.
Spatial distribution, the incorporation of technologies, practical improvements,
software, manufacturing systems… all these aspects are developed and coordinated
to perfection to create vessels that exceed our customers’ expectations.
One distinguishing facet of design and production is project planning:
the complex task of synchronizing the arrival of equipment and analyzing
its technical documentation, executing the technical office’s plans,
installing the equipment, etc. All these tasks have to be carried out in an efficient,
coordinated way, as well as taking into account the uniqueness of each boat
and the particular characteristics of each project.
The GONDAN Technical Department is key to the company’s operations,
further increasing control of the production process in our facilities.
The detailed design and construction plans are drawn up by the shipyard’s
own technical staff using state-of-the-art software: fairing, nesting,
detailed drawings for the steel construction, steel blocks, pipe isometrics, routing, etc.
Among other tasks, the technical department is responsible for the following:
weight control during the construction period, stability calculations,
launching conditions, approval of plans by the classification society and by flag authorities.
Our innovative spirit, added to our company’s proven track record over almost 100 years,
has set us apart from the rest and made us able to integrate pioneering technological solutions.
Here are just a few:
