In addition, Visec and MultiPlus Solutions have signed a collaboration agreement where Visec will be representing the Norwegian company in the Vietnamese market.

Visec is a subsidiary of Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (Vinashin). If successful, the pre-study will be followed up by an agreement for consultancy services and installation of the MultiPlus Shipbuilding Solution at shipyards and other subsidiaries in the Vinashin Group. The Vinashin Group has over 200 subsidiaries including 38 shipyards and 5 shipping companies that has about 18,000 highly skilled employees.

“The collaboration with MultiPlus Solutions and a later investment in MultiPlus Shipbuilding Solution is strategically important in our future approach to the global shipbuilding market. It is our intention that MultiPlus Shipbuilding Solutions will play a key role in our collaborations with ship-owners, classification societies, design companies and the government, and will also be a central management tool in our production processes. The objective is to strengthen our involvement with increasingly more advanced vessels and our position as an inexpensive quality supplier,” says CEO of Visec, Mr. Minh, at today’s public contract signing arrangement.

The Vinashin Group has evaluated several other major ERP-solutions, but has decided to continue the selection process exclusively with MultiPlus Shipbuilding Solution.

“Being chosen by the Vinashin Group is a great recognition for us and to our global efforts in the shipbuilding market with its related supplier’s industry. With Visec as our partner, we will also have more opportunities in the Vietnamese market,” says CEO of MultiPlus Solutions, Per Olav Helgeland, who also expresses gratitude towards Innovation Norway Hanoi and Norwegian Maritime Exporters for making important contributions in realising this agreement.

The intention is for Visec is to become a full-value partner to MultiPlus Solutions in Vietnam, to the same extent that Aeromarine and the RomLotusGroup serve as MultiPlus Solutions partners in Spain and Romania today.
