What this award means 

Over the past few years, there has been a strong push for the marine industry to be a major focus for Siemens. This award recognizes the growth and drive put in from NX™ software and FORAN to make a difference to the naval sector around the world. The efforts of our program CESENA (Center of Excellence for the Naval Sector located in Galicia) have been directly highlighted by the committee for outstanding commitment to innovation and digital transformation.  

“CESENA will work on the development of future solutions for the Spanish naval sector and will encourage the collaboration between the different agents of the industry: shipyards, universities, research centers, associations, shipowners and public organizations.”

Miguel Ángel López, President of Siemens Spain 

CESENA is also joining the likes of a larger network of Centers of Excellence that Siemens has already established throughout shipbuilding communities in countries like the USA, Germany, India, Australia, China, and the United Kingdom.  

Digital transformation through CESENA 

The main objective of CESENA is developing digital transformation by creating ‘Shipyard 4.0’, which allows the essential pairing of the Digital Twin to ship builders. Not only has this boosted modernization of the shipbuilding world but is also leading to a greener and more sustainable future.  

We are extremely honored to have accepted this award on October 27th at the gala dinner of the 61st Congress of Naval Engineering and Maritime Industry.
