The SVR-Lazartigue trimaran, developed with Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, finishes second in its first offshore race, the Transat Jacques Vabre 2021

  • MerConcept, builder of the Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue, used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve the boat’s performance and design its systems

  • The development of the new generation of “flying boats” favors aerodynamics as much as hydrodynamics.

  • MerConcept relied on two experiences of industry solutions from Dassault Systèmes based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France, December 01, 2021– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: FR0014003TT8, DSY.PA) (Paris: DSY) announces today that its 3DEXPERIENCE platform has been used to develop the high performance boat “Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue”, which finished second in the 15e edition of the Transat Jacques Vabre sailing competition. On November 7, 2021, just three months after its first launch, the Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue left the start line of the Transat Jacques Vabre in Normandy for its first offshore race, arriving in Martinique on November 23 after having traveled 7,500 miles. crossing the Atlantic.

Designed and assembled by MerConcept, which contracted the entire project, the Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue belongs to the new generation of “flying boats” in which aerodynamics is as important as hydrodynamics. The development of new technologies in all areas of design makes the Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue a unique and revolutionary boat.

In particular, MerConcept was able to benefit from the power of Dassault Systèmes ‘3DEXPERIENCE platform, distributed by Dassault Systèmes’ commercial partner CT Mer Forte. Use of the platform “Winning bid for the sea“An industrial solution experiment on the cloud, MerConcept created a virtual twin of the boat and performed high fidelity simulations which allowed it to optimize the aerodynamics of the boat and significantly improve its performance. MerConcept used the”Sea boat builder“Experience of industrial solution to carry out the design of the boat systems.

“The efficiency of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has enabled us to significantly optimize our performance during the study and design phases”, declared Antoine Gautier, Director Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue, MerConcept.

“With each new sailing race, we are able to witness new technical feats that allow boats of different classes to go faster, with unprecedented strength and resilience,” said François-Xavier Dumez. , Vice-President, Marine & Offshore Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform and the virtual world make these sophisticated technological advances possible. We warmly congratulate the Trimaran SVR-Lazartigue and MerConcept team for an impressive performance in their first offshore race.

“As a business partner of Dassault Systèmes, and a close partner of François Gabart and the MerConcept teams for many years, the engineering group CT and CT Mer Forte join Dassault Systèmes to congratulate François and Tom Laperche for the excellent finish of this Transat Jacques Vabre 2021 ”, declared Denis Juhel, director of CT Mer Forte.
