Braskem, Latin America’s largest petrochemical company, has signed a contract with AVEVA to convert the engineering and design data of 12 of its plants to AVEVA PDMS™ during 2014. This large contract is the result of a successful pilot project executed earlier this year. Braskem chose AVEVA over several other software vendors, attributing their decision to the confidence they had built up in AVEVA’s technology and personnel during the pilot project.

‘These petrochemical plants were originally designed with software from another company,’ explained Luis Henrique Barreto, Coordinator of Engineering Systems and Documents, Braskem. ‘AVEVA PDMS offers us reliable continuity and the integrity of the original models.

Combined with the excellent post-sales support and service we receive from AVEVA, this will ensure that the conversion runs smoothly creating high quality models without significant data loss. At the end of the process we will have AVEVA PDMS models of all of our plants, and we can use those models for the design and execution of maintenance and modification projects. The confidence we have in AVEVA and its technology has put us at ease with the process.”

“We are proud to be working with Braskem on such an exciting large-scale project,” said Helmut Schuller, Executive Vice President, Global Sales, AVEVA. “The migration process must ensure maximum data integrity and our solutions and experience in large-scale migrations will ensure we achieve this. We look forward to continuing our work with Braskem and supplying our proven technologies to strengthen their operations. This agreement is a first step in our new relationship and clear evidence of Braskem’s confidence in AVEVA.”
