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.
