CMN has chosen the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to boost innovation

The CMN group is a shipyard located in Cherbourg, and spans the diverse range of specialties required for the construction of civil and military vessels. Since its foundation in 1945, more than 350 vessels made of wood, aluminum, steel, and composite materials have been launched.


As well as its ship building and repair activities, CMN is also active in the industrial sector:

  • Boiler-making
  • Nuclear piping
  • Conducting studies (integration, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC))



Meeting high demands

As clients are very demanding in the air and ship industry, it makes sense that innovation is at the heart of CMN’s business. And to honor its motto, “innovation by design,” CMN relies on 3D technology to visualize and implement what the customer wants. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform reduces the iterations inherent in naval construction projects and enables customers’ requirements to be met.


KEONYS supported CMN in its technological choices: CATIA for establishing methodologies, CAD to design the mock up, texture rendering, structure and piping, and ENOVIA to merge and share all the data about the construction project.



Innovation at the heart of the shipbuilding industry

“Innovation is at the heart of what we do and we use CATIA in the preliminary draft study design phase to create a first mock up that is used by our in-house designers to make textured renderings.”
