AVEVA Laser Modeler Cuts Time and Costs

AVEVA Laser Modeler allows for simple selection of catalog components while modeling.

AVEVA said Burgasnefteproekt, an engineering company in the field of petrochemicals, has achieved significant cost savings using AVEVA Laser Modeler. Burgasnefteproekt recently acquired the AVEVA software and used it to capture the as-built asset and create a 3D model of an existing flaring system. This is part of a revamp project to rebuild the system and ensure up-to-date, accurate project documentation. Using 3D laser scanning technologies and processing the scan data using AVEVA Laser Modeler and AVEVA PDMS, Burgasnefteproekt achieved approximately 80% savings in design man-hours.

The laser scan data captured from the facility was imported into AVEVA Laser Modeler, where the modeling process is driven by the high resolution, photo-realistic BubbleView. On completion the new model was transferred to AVEVA PDMS. The result is an accurate 3D as-built model that Burgasnefteproekt used for the revamp project, as well as providing a valuable digital asset for future design and maintenance activities. Any future plant modifications can be easily compared with the as-built 3D model as the LFM Server technology can be used to reference the laser scan data directly inside AVEVA PDMS.

“The use of laser scanning technology on this project had a significant impact on the overall labor costs by making the process faster and more efficient,” explained Rosen Spasov Kutiev, Head of Technical Department, Burgasnefteproekt. “Using AVEVA technologies we were able to complete the documentation in only 136 man-hours. Using traditional ways of working, the same task would have taken us between 700 and 900 man-hours. As a result, we rapidly gained an accurate as-built 3D model which we can use for redesign.”

“Managing increasingly complex digital assets is essential to our customers and it is very rewarding to see how our software is helping companies like Burgasnefteproekt to reduce project time and costs. These efficiency gains make a real difference to the bottom line of their business,” said Evgeny Fedotov, Senior Vice President Russia, India & Middle East, AVEVA. “An additional advantage of selecting AVEVA laser technology is its hardware independence. Customers can use virtually any laser scanner hardware and the AVEVA laser software will support the import of the collected data. This gives our customers a valuable competitive advantage.”
