AQUILA is simply revolutionizing shipbuilding through its powerful communication, collaboration, and document management platform. Shipbuilding has never been easier with this simple platform designed to support all your design and building projects, big or small. Communication between project participants is typically driven by email, Word documents and Excel spreadsheets, which are not the most efficient, nor secure way of tracking project progress. Aquila removes the administrative burden of conventional tools through its intuitive collaborative design, enabling your teams to track progress, take control and bring cohesion and efficiency to your projects

Red Tape Diaries

We all have challenges and frustrations in business but excessive Red Tape should not be one of them! This page will launch this fall and it will aim to highlight relatively minor issues that can turn out to be major irritants. Our objective, of course, is to get things fixed and we believe that by bringing them to the table and identifying them, collectively we can find solutions that will make everybody happy.

The issues we might explore could concern procurement processes, regulatory issues, financial considerations or indeed anything that people feel is getting in the way of good business. We will highlight them here and then, collectively, try to make things better. No promises! Supertankers take time to alter course but they do eventually. Together we might just see some progress and by doing so, make all our jobs just a little easier.

More soon but please feel free to share your issues anytime at
