'For each item of process equipment or tool, an individual Notebook record called "Tool Package" is created, containing process information such as layout drawings of equipment and sub-equipment, P&IDs, electrical diagrams, 3D views, piping and cable tray isometric drawings. Much of this information is automatically generated from PDMS,' said Yoann Sestier.'PDMS has proved to be a very flexible tool,' he went on. 'It can handle all these process changes smoothly in an extremely tight schedule. The PML scripting language has made it easy for us to customise PDMS and add many new functions via macros.'Increasing the level of designFor its next nuclear project, OMEGA Concept plans to implement AVEVA Multi-Discipline Supports, in order to be able to include all support details in the model. 'Our use of PDMS has evolved considerably since the first project. The level of detail we now include in the PDMS model has increased significantly, and enables fast, problem-free fabrication and installation. Furthermore,' Yoann Sestier concluded, 'we have developed a partnership with some of our duct suppliers, in order to deliver them our PDMS model for direct duct manufacturing (CAM).'About OMEGA ConceptIn January 2012, AXIMA SEITHA and OMEGA Concept merged to become AXIMA Concept within the GDF SUEZ Energy Services group, strengthening their leading position in HVAC technology and their expertise in the fields of fire protection and refrigeration.For more information about OMEGA Concept, visit www.omega-concept-gdfsuez.com.28AVEVA World Magazine 2012|Issue 1AVEVA PDMS images of process equipment in the nanotechnology research centre.

Image courtesy of Rolls-Royce.Rolls-Royce uses AVEVA Marine in practical and daily design work only two months after migration from Tribon M3In December 2010, Rolls-Royce received an order from the Singapore-based offshore company, PaxOcean Engineering, to provide the ship design, propulsion systems and deck machinery for two platform supply vessels (PSVs) of the UT 755 CD design, (a development of the popular UT 755 series). The vessels are currently being built at PaxOcean Engineering's offshore vessel shipyard in Zhuhai, China, with delivery due in 2012.Magnus FeldtEditor, AVEVA World MagazineRolls-Royce is a world leader in marine solutions, providing products, services and expertise to more than 30,000 vessels in the offshore, merchant, and naval surface and submarine markets. The Rolls-Royce UT-Design range for the offshore industry covers platform supply, anchor handling, cable-laying and multi-purpose vessels, as well as seismic survey, intervention service and drilling vessels.Following a requirement from PaxOcean Engineering that the vessels should be designed with AVEVA Marine, Rolls-Royce decided to migrate immediately to this application. In order to be able to deliver the design in time, Rolls-Royce took on a challenging schedule for the training and implementation of the AVEVA Marine system.The offshore ship design is carried out at the offices in Ulsteinvik, Norway, and at Navis Consult, an engineering company in Rijeka, Croatia, owned by Rolls-Royce. The ship designers in both Ulsteinvik and Rijeka are all experienced Tribon shipbuilding users. We met Oddvar Skotte, CAD Manager, and Oystein Alme, Senior Engineer, Structural Design, at the AVEVA World Marine Seminar in Malmö in November 2011, to find out more about their speedy and efficient migration to AVEVA Marine from the Tribon M3 shipbuilding system.
