Siemens Allies with SENER to Acquire FORAN Software

Siemens Digital Industries Software has collaborated with Spain-based SENER, a leading multinational company in engineering and technology, to acquire its FORAN software business.

SiemensFORAN is CAD/CAE/CAM software for the design, construction and engineering of vessels and marine structures.

“The acquisition of FORAN enhances our marine digital twin, adding preeminent capabilities to our integrated ship design and engineering digital thread solution,” said Tony Hemmelgarn, CEO and President, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “By adding FORAN’s extensive tools to the Xcelerator portfolio and leveraging the team’s industry expertise, we will be able to offer commercial and naval shipbuilding customers better control of their ship design and manufacturing process as they transition to Shipyard 4.0.”

“With over 150 shipyard and design office customers across 40 countries, FORAN technology provides a strong position for Siemens to better support customers across the marine industry. At the same time, Siemens’ global reach and the integration of the FORAN team into Siemens helps guarantee current FORAN clients continuity and improvement to the services provided with a strategic vision for ongoing developments,” said Gabriel Alarcón, Managing Director, SENER Engineering. “This transaction allows the FORAN product family to grow in line with the expanded presence that Siemens has in industrial software.”

The addition of the FORAN product and team to Siemens, together with its customer portfolio, brings experience and comprehensive know-how across complex commercial marine projects, defense industry standards and regulatory compliance.

FORAN will be added to Siemens’ Xcelerator portfolio, offering a comprehensive and integrated portfolio of software and services that covers all aspects of the shipping lifecycle, from concept design through production to operations and optimized service lifecycle management.
