AVEVA and ETAP’s collaboration provides the first single round-tripping environment for complete data validation including 3D visualization

AVEVA and ETAP have signed a partnership agreement under which both companies will jointly develop a software interface between AVEVA Electrical and ETAP’s enterprise solution for electrical power systems. The new interface will provide for the first time electrical engineers with a single round-tripping environment for complete data validation from design and network validation to 3D visualization. The interface will deliver capabilities for efficient design, development and production for the most complex electrical installations in all types of process and power plants, ships and offshore facilities.

The collaboration means that engineers will be able to introduce an iterative approach to electrical data changes. They can now seamlessly round-trip data between AVEVA Electrical and ETAP as many times as necessary and can use shared data to visualize and perform accurate cable routing in AVEVA Everything3D through an unbroken workflow.

“Last month customers from around the world gathered to test a pre-release version of the new software interface,” said Shervin Shokooh, Chief Operating Officer, ETAP. “The response was overwhelmingly positive. The interface is helping engineers and designers to repeatedly check the validity of electrical engineering plant design and ensure compliance with relevant industry standards.”

“We have been working with ETAP for many years so it is very rewarding to formalize our partnership with such an important project,” said Dave Wheeldon, Chief Technology Officer, AVEVA. “The interface, which can be easily and quickly introduced at any stage of a project, offers a unique opportunity for electrical engineers to take designs from Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) to detailed design and construction and all the way to operations.  The benefits are not just realized during design, it allows electrical validation to continue throughout the life cycle of plant.”
