Revolutionize the way
you do projects

Aquila is a secure cloud-based communication, collaboration and document management application, that helps to reduce the administrative burden on a project team, allowing them to focus on their core duties related to the design, construction and quality of a ship.

Be more efficient. Be more effective.

Aquila is a simple yet powerful application that can support the management of your shipbuilding projects, big or small.

Aquila was developed as a tool to help project managers display all their global projects in a structured way, as well as organize and track vast amounts of shipbuilding documentation and communications, allowing quick identification of issues and thorough follow-up of comments.

Success Stories

Aquila was exactly the project management tool we required to manage simultaneous containership projects in 3 different countries and in 3 different shipyards. Being an internet based platform and with an intuitive user interface, both the project team and the shipyard could seamlessly manage scheduling, drawing approval, NCR reporting, recording of inspection results and Factory Acceptance Tests. The platform works just as smoothly from a personal mobile device as from a workstation and even in countries where internet access is controlled. On completion of the project, final drawings, certification, and project documentation were easily stored and cataloged, in fact, Aquila presently houses tens of thousands of final drawings, NCR comments, plan approval comments, inspection results, and project documentation, all which are readily accessible and controlled through an access rights system, which is administered by the project manager.

BC Ferries has used the Aquila QMS on three successive shipbuilding and major conversion projects.  It has proven to be the ideal instrument for managing drawing review between Owner and Shipyard, combining the functions of database, communications, and tracking tools in one framework.  It has allowed for a large and disperse drawing review team to work collaboratively and openly, while enabling the Project Manager to consolidate, filter and edit formal comments before being published to the shipyard design office.  Aquila is widely used and valued in the organisation as the controlled source of project engineering drawings, keeping the Owner and Shipyard aligned with respect to latest revisions, and carefully tracking the timelines of formal correspondence.


Director of Fleet Engineering , BC Ferries

I would like to thank the team for their excellent service and mention a few advantages of using the  Aquila system. Aquila significantly reduces backwards and forth of emails and attachments between participants on a team project and streamlines the communication process.Our teams worked within a single platform, allowing very close collaboration during the project and quicker resolution of issues. Large numbers of documents and comments are kept well organized and accessible. The result has enabled Seaspan to save time, allowing the team to focus on the design and quality of the ships and leave administration to Aquila.
