Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis solutions help a leading Italian owner operator in erecting a new plant inside an existing facility.
“The detailed design process used for this project was very powerful, I was really impressed! Design review helped us to correctly understand all the design and construction steps, checking correspondence of process and construction documents.” said Marson 3D Innovative’s customer, Isagro, after seeing Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis tools used in a project.
Marson 3D Innovative is an Italian engineering company specializing in 3D design and laser scanning surveys. The company’s client, Isagro, a leading Italian owner operator in the agro pharmaceutical market, needed a new cryogenic plant to be erected inside an existing facility – therefore a new as-built 3D model of the facility needed to be created to facilitate the insertion of the new plant.
The biggest project challenge was the time constraint, and Marson 3D Innovative needed a way to shorten their original engineering schedule to meet the tight deadline. With
Croatian engineering and analysis specialist Numikon improves productivity 640% with Intergraph CADWorx solutions
“When we first started using the Leica total station and Intergraph software the two companies trained our staff. It took them about ten days to get up to speed and start on their first project. We were particularly impressed by the in-depth knowledge of the Intergraph and Leica people. On the whole we estimate that our productivity has gone up by as much as 640% (six times)! This productivity gain means that we can minimize the on-site project time and maximize efficiency, offering our customers a very attractive package.” Mario Anić, Sales Manager from Numikon stated.
Numikon is a Croatian engineering company specializing in the calculation and analysis of mechanical, power and process equipment and components, project engineering of process and power plants, pipe stress analysis, pressure vessel design, as well as laser scanning and laser surveying.
Numikon executed a refinery project for INA-Industrija nafte d.d., a leading oil exploration, production, refining and marketing company in Croatia. INA was looking for an efficient solution to create as-built information for their Sisak refinery, and hired a consortium of companies for the project. Numikon was chosen to execute a laser scanning survey and create as-built models of the existing refinery.
The main challenge for Numikon was that the laser survey had to be undertaken while the refinery was operating, and some of the piping was difficult to access because of its location above ground, or because it was insulated, as well as the tight deadline of the project.
With the help of CADWorx fieldPipe Professional and CADWorx Plant Professional, Numikon surveyed their part of Sisak refinery in only 49 days. Using the laser surveyed data the company created all deliverables required by INA, including:
• 3D models
• Piping isometrics
• Details of piping components (valves, pressure regulators, flanges, supports, etc.)
• Tag and nameplate details
• Details of the equipment and connected piping
• Pipe stress analysis results (including required test pressure) and pipe data (wall thickness, material properties, etc.)
