Chalmers Engineering selects AVEVA Bocad software
One of AVEVA's software products will be used for the construction of an unnamed oil and gas project commissioned by Kuwait Oil Company
British IT technology provider, AVEVA, said on Wednesday one of its software products has been selected by UAE-based Chalmers Engineering for work on an unnamed EPC project.
AVEVA's advanced structural detailing software AVEVA Bocad will be used for the construction of an undisclosed offshore project for Kuwait Oil Company.
Already using AVEVA’s 3D design modelling software, Chalmers will now be able to seamlessly add AVEVA Bocad to its design process via the AVEVA Bocad Steel Interface.
"AVEVA software gives us more accurate fabrication deliverables for the specific needs of the industry we serve," said George Kurien, senior design engineer at Chalmers.
"Its key differentiator was how easily it could integrate structural steel detailing into 3D design. The combination of AVEVA Bocad Steel and AVEVA Bocad Offshore helps us save time due to the automated engineering process and we no longer rely on manual 2D tools for our structural steel design."
‘Conventionally, steel detailing is outsourced to specialist contractors, breaking the necessary close integration between piping and structural design, and creating opportunities for inconsistencies, clashes, costly rework and project delays’, said Louis Khoury, SVP of operations - MEA, AVEVA.
"Yet AVEVA’s strategic acquisition of the Bocad software, and subsequently FabTrol, enables close collaboration, high productivity and reduced business risk in the integration of plant structural and piping design."
