Managing the inspection process of a shipbuilding project is complicated. A project typically extends over several years and includes many different types of activities and stakeholders. 

First launched in 2004, Nauticus Construction has been used by more than 200 newbuilding projects by customers. This inspection management tool was developed by DNV in close cooperation with shipowners’ newbuilding departments and site teams. Built on the same framework that is used internally by DNV for site approval, it features:

  • tailor-made functionalities for supervision at site, including planning, execution, reporting and follow-up of inspections

  • status reports providing real-time project overview
  • multi-user access to supports sharing of information between team members and the owner’s head office

New features introduced in 2020 include:
  • new user interface based on a process-centric approach

  • option to add comments
  • status reporting: ability to print all open items to excel (including images)
