Batavia Werf Uses Powerproject for 17th Century Warship Reconstruction
A replica of the 17th century Dutch admiralty warship, The Seven Provinces, has been reconstructed at the Batavia Werf, a traditional shipyard in Lelystad, the Netherlands, with the help of Powerproject – a project and resource management solution from Elecosoft.
The 163 foot long and 43 foot wide ship is an exact copy of the original Seven Provinces built in 1664-1665 for the Board of Admiralty of Rotterdam.
This ship was used in the Anglo Dutch maritime conflict waged in the late 17th century.
The project is the second of its kind at the Batavia ship yard, the first being the reconstruction of the 17th century United East India Company ship, The Batavia, which set sail on its maiden voyage to Batavia (now Jakarta, Indonesia) in June 1629.
Built without the aid of a project management solution the rebuild of The Seven Provinces was hindered by many challenges in the project planning, resource management and budgetary areas.
Keen to avoid these problems the team at Batavia Werf implemented Powerproject to help them plan and manage the rebuild of The Seven Provinces.
The replica is being made using traditional methods based on historical knowledge and Powerproject has been implemented to ensure efficiency in the area of project planning and resource and financial management.
