GPA provides shipyards with a complete range of production engineering services, including shape and plate nesting, computer lofting, pipe spools and numerical control (NC) tape production. To optimize construction efficiency, we employ a range of 3-D modeling software, which is also exceptionally valuable for visualization and to perform interference checks, including ShipConstructor, Navisworks, as well as AutoCAD.
