ESTECO Joins Groupama Team France as an Official Supplier in the Race for the America’s Cup

Fri, 29/04/2016

ESTECO is one of the official suppliers of Groupama Team France, providing its best-in-class software to perfect the design of Team France’s high-performance foiling catamaran design.

The French Team entered the competition for the 35th America’s Cup less than a year ago and secured its first victory in ACWS last February in Oman skippered by Adam Minoprio. The road to the final America’s Cup race in 2017 in Bermuda is still long and the engineering software tool the teams choose could be the game changer in the battle for challenger selection.

"modeFRONTIER - says Andrea Vergombello, engineer within Groupama Team France’s design office - has the advantage of a particularly intuitive user interface, good graphics management, simultaneous control of several processes and the availability of a support service."
