Unlocking the Value of the Digital Ship: Genoa Design International Announces Partnership with Datifex

Published: November 29, 2022

Mount Pearl, Newfoundland and Labrador, November 29, 2022 – Genoa Design International Ltd., one of the shipbuilding industry’s most sought-after 3D modeling, design, and digital ship companies, today announced a partnership with Datifex, a pioneer in immersive 3D web applications and the industrial metaverse. The partnership will see both firms work together to unlock the vast, untapped potential of the digital ship.

Genoa brings more than 27 years of knowledge and experience in the North American shipbuilding market to the table, including its considerable work on recent coast guard and military vessels in Canada and the United States. This is complemented by Genoa’s investment in its Innovation team and award-winning Academy that develops the next generation of skills for the industry.

Datifex brings the ability to connect ships, data, and people in real-time to enable collaboration with its Chrome-based FleetVIEW MS platform. Datifex’s track record includes command and control systems for intermodal terminals, naval bases, warships, ports, border crossings, aircraft sensors and more.

Through this collaboration, Genoa and Datifex will modernize how ships are built, operated, and maintained by using technology to create tailored solutions that transform how people engage with complex information.

A demo of this innovative work will be shown at Genoa’s booth (1036) at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans, LA from November 30 – December 2.

Partnerships such as this one between Genoa and Datifex are made possible through Canada’s National Shipbuilding Strategy, leading to economic benefits for Canadians as partners work together to rebuild the nation’s shipbuilding industry.

“Building on our foundations as a technology-driven organization, Genoa continues to make strategic investments in innovation and digital transformation, bringing new technologycapabilities to the industry. Our partnership with Datifex combines our design and shipbuilding knowledge with leading data visualization technologies, unlocking the value of the digital ship throughout the lifecycle of the vessel.”

Gina Pecore, CEO, Genoa Design International Ltd.

“This partnership will transform shipbuilding and establish the industry as a leader in the industrial metaverse. The implementation of innovations is equally as important as the technology itself, and this is where we look to Genoa’s industry expertise. Together, we will enable simultaneous collaboration amongst various users, leveraging real-time data from disparate sources, all in the context of the 3D ship. We call it a single pane of glass, and it is so lightweight you can access it in your Chrome browser on any device.”

– Chris Erickson, CEO, Datifex
