AVEVA says that Progen Projetos Gerenciamento e Engenharia S.A. (Progen) has gained impressive benefits by using AVEVA PDMS software on a major greenfield project in Brazil, for multinational EVONIK.
‘We have experienced significant advantages by using AVEVA PDMS on EVONIK’s BOOST project, a new plant that will produce products for the cosmetics industry’, explained Renato Marquesano, Engineering Systems, Progen. ‘Previously we were working with 2D design software and increasingly encountered discrepancies, from inaccurate material lists to high numbers of clashes. This led to significant and costly problems in the construction phase.
‘On the BOOST project, a large and complex chemical plant with over 1400 piping lines, 1700 manual valves, 300 motors and 1350 field instruments, we have seen dramatic improvements. By using AVEVA PDMS we have been able to create higher quality design deliverables, collaborate more efficiently and greatly reduce rework, all of which have resulted in considerable time and cost savings.’
