Nortech Streamlines Plant Design with CADWorx


Nortech was selected to engineer and design a new plant for Jersey Gas company, a liquefied petro gas importer owned by International Energy Group.The new plant was required to operate on demand and cover seasonal differences in energy demand, allowing the existing gas holder to be withdrawn out of service and the associated land to be sold for further development.

Nortech chose CADWorx Plant Professional and Autodesk Navisworks for their familiarity and AutoCAD-based 3D design capabilities. The 3D design began with the creation of piping specifications along with existing, modified, and new piping catalogs. The piping modeling commenced after the creation of the specifications.

CADWorx Plant Professional was also used for the structural, civil, and mechanical design. After this, all the isometric drawings were produced with Isogen, enabling automated isometric creation tailored to Nortech’s needs. Piping support details and generic 3D design were also created. Plus, the 3D design was transferred into a fully dimensional 2D format for fabrication purposes.

Whether you’re involved in waste water, water treatment, or desalination projects, CADWorx can meet the engineering and design challenges you face and project execution methodology your company follows to layout, design and deliver these types of facilities.
Key takeaways from the Webinar:
Using a waste water treatment and an associated water purification plant model as a basis for the live demonstration, learn how:


  • Concrete and steel structures – like sedimentation and aeration tanks – commonplace in waste water treatment facilities, are designed; 
  • In combination with BricsCAD BIM, buildings housing plant can be modeled and detailed in accordance with industry standards;
  • Piping used in water treatment facilities, having different materials, connections and construction methods, are easily routed and quickly changed when designs need to be revised;
  • Deliverables are generated automatically, ensuring an accurate and consistent handover of information to procurement, construction and commissioning, and eventually, operations and maintenance;

with Werner Theron, Chempute

Date: March 29, 2018
Time: 10:00AM CT  click here for your local time
Duration: 30 min
Cost: free eSeminar

With recent product updates, End Type configurations have been greatly enhanced to cater for a wider scope of different piping systems found in alternative industries, including:

• Pharmaceutical
• Food & Beverage
• Compressed Air
• Water Treatment
And other

Join us during this webinar and learn how to configure custom end types for accurate modelling as well as customizing Isogen for an accurate representation on the deliverable.

Speaker Bio:

Werner Theron is currently the CAD applications manager for Chempute Software, a position he has held since 2008, after he joined Chempute Software, CADWorx & Analysis Solutions Global Network Partner, in 2006.

Mahler AGS Cuts Design Time with CADWorx Plant Professional


Mahler AGS, a global leader in designing and manufacturing hydrogen generation plants, built a new hydrogen generation plant in record time with CADWorx Plant Professional.

The EPC was asked to design and manufacture a modular hydrogen plant for a leading global company in the palm oil business. As part of the modular design principle, Mahler pre-assembled and delivered the plant as prefabricated units.

Mahler AGS was looking to replace its existing design software (X-Plant) that also included a modern 3D planning solution. The new system needed to be compatible with the previous AutoCAD-based software, was easy-to-use, and was fast to implement so it could minimize project downtime and delay. CADWorx Plant Professional was chosen due to its AutoCAD-based structure, scalability, and suitability for the project scope.

Ultimately, by choosing CADWorx Plant Professional, Mahler AGS reduced project man-hours by 10 to 15 percent.

Hydrocarbon Engineering Article Showcases CADWorx and CAESAR II Success


The January issue of Hydrocarbon Engineering features the article “Take It Up A Notch.” Michael Smith and Jana Miller from Hexagon PPM discuss how ancillary design software can assist EPC contractors in both brownfield and greenfield projects.

The article features CAESAR II and CADWorx success stories from Rishabh Engineering and Vepica.

Satisfaction with your current situation can be a dangerous state. True leaders are always seeking ways to take it up a notch. Gaining a competitive edge in today’s economy is key for engineering companies to achieve success.

Rishabh Engineering has increased its workflow efficiency by taking advantage of advanced plant design and pipe stress analysis technology for brownfield projects. The company uses Hexagon PPM’s software solutions to assist with a variety of ancillary design services.

Vepica is another EPC that has addressed simultaneous engineering and fabrication challenges. It was able to complete a fractionation plant 15 percent faster using design software from Hexagon PPM.

Refinery piping stress analysis project

Rishabh Engineering was contracted by an EPC client to execute piping stress analysis of 100 systems (approximately 750 lines) of various units at a large refinery in Louisiana, US. Rishabh was appointed to perform piping stress analysis for 100 systems (approximately 750 lines) of various units. The project involved a total of 4,000 man-hours.

This project received the 2017 CAESAR II Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award.

Fractionation project

Basic Equipment Inc. selected Vepica to design the fractionation facility of a 25,000 BPD Atmospheric Distillation Unit (ADU) in Houston, Texas, US, for processing Crude A (API 38.2°) or Crude B (API 45.8°) in single crude streams or a combination of these two feed stocks. Effective communication among Vepica’s design teams was paramount to ensure they used the same design procedures to deliver quality results.

“Without CADWorx, costly clashes and interferences were common as were dimensioning and format errors for piping isometrics,” explained Jesus Espiga, piping engineer at Vepica.

Vepica received the 2016 CADWorx Drivers of Success Runner-Up Award for this project. Apply now for the 2018 Drivers of Success Awards.
