SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Matterport, Inc. (Nasdaq: MTTR), the leading spatial data company driving the digital transformation of the built world, today announced that Damen Shipyards Group (“Damen”), a Dutch shipbuilding company operating in 120 countries and delivering 175 ships per year, has adopted Matterport digital twins to facilitate remote collaboration for internal and external stakeholders. With access to Matterport’s rich and dimensionally accurate data, Damen applied an innovative approach to driving customer satisfaction.

“When we discovered Matterport, we quickly realized the power of the digital twin to unlock collaboration and engagement with our designers and customers,” said Jan-Jaap Eits, Deputy Project Manager at Damen Shipyards. “Today, we use Matterport to allow our customers to remotely examine and inspect every compartment and detail of a vessel in 3D space. Internally, our design and engineering teams have access to detailed measurements and layouts to enable them to work more efficiently and avoid costly and time-consuming site visits. »

Across its Workboat division, including its major shipyards in China, Turkey and Vietnam, Damen uses Matterport Pro2 3D cameras to capture the digital twins of its vessels. With access to 3D space at the planning stage, customers can review the layout and location of equipment and request changes if necessary. Once a design is finalized, Damen shares his digital twin internally with his after-sales department, allowing him to better understand the vessel when it is completed and delivered. Additionally, the measurement mode capability within a Matterport digital twin allows Damen’s design and engineering staff to verify measurements down to the centimeter, including layout of parts and placement of everything, from windows and doors to hardware and equipment, all without a site visit.

With its growing library of digital twins, Damen has developed a 3D archive of its vessels to support accounting efforts and prevent operational difficulties in the future. Additionally, the company’s digital recording of its constructions will facilitate knowledge transfer and training when Damen’s long-time employees retire or leave the company in the future.

“The growing adoption of Matterport across multiple industries, from store management to commercial boats, demonstrates that digital twins add operational efficiencies and engage customers throughout their journeys,” said Conway Chen, vice-president. President of Business Development and Strategy at Matterport. “With the Matterport digital twins at hand, Damen is able to solidify its reputation as a technology-driven organization focused on delivering the best experience to its customers.”
