' The subcontractors also receive the 3D PDMS models for the visualisation of the project ahead of the fabrication, testing and shipping of the modules.' BWSC has developed PDMS features ' BWSC has taken a step further and developed several PDMS features to facilitate internal work within the company: . BWSC Material Take- Off ( MTO) management features . Unit Management features for easy selection and design of components . Specific adaptations in AVEVA Multi- Discipline Supports for BWSC users . Consistency check between piping in design and the P& ID system. Upgrade to PDMS 12 ' BWSC maintains close relationships with the world's leading engine and boiler suppliers, which provides us with the opportunity to select the most suitable equipment for each specific project. The flexibility gives us the ability to objectively choose the technology which best matches the requirements and output of a particular project. ' In a power plant you find many items of equipment and several industrial processes. BWSC buys this equipment from other acknowledged suppliers, who often deliver the equipment models in PDMS or other CAD formats. We plan to upgrade to PDMS 12 in the very near future. We will then be able to use the AVEVA Mechanical Equipment Interface which makes it easy to import the models into the current PDMS model. For future sales prospects, BWSC intends to create the 3D PDMS models at the conceptual phase, for tendering purposes. For the potential client, this is a tremendous way to visualise the thoughts and ideas behind the power plant,' concludes Erik Østergaard. Examples of current BWSC projects using PDMS .

Whatever their professional field, there are few things engineers enjoy more than exchanging ideas and exploring how other people solve common problems. This is why focused industry events are so popular, and why AVEVA's ISEIT and Marine User Meetings ( AMUM) have been consistently successful for more than two decades. But the world is changing. Traditional boundaries between engineering specialisations are converging as projects become ever more complex, technologies more integrated, and working methods more collaborative. AVEVA is helping to drive this change, both with its technologies and in the ways it supports customers and the wider engineering industry. This year, we launch AVEVA World, a new approach that brings engineering professionals and technologists together by combining the best of ISEIT and AMUM. The AVEVA World Summits are the first step in a wider initiative that will create an inclusive and accessible community, designed to grow and evolve over time. AVEVA World Summits feature three major events in 2010 at exciting venues around the world, and with packed agendas which will appeal to engineering professionals and managers in both the plant and marine industries. Each event follows the flexible multi- track format which has proved so successful and popular at ISEIT and AMUM. The evening before the event, delegates will enjoy a relaxing drinks reception in the hotel. On the first full day, a single- track agenda includes insightful presentations by acknowledged industry experts and thought leaders, covering a range of topical issues. On the second day, multi- track agendas provide in- depth coverage of specific issues of interest to different sections of the engineering business community. Visit the new AVEVA World website A new website has already been launched ( www. avevaworld. com) where you can find out more about the AVEVA World Summits, and register for the one in your region, whether Amsterdam, Beijing or Las Vegas. Who attends AVEVA World Summits? As our customers evolve their businesses to handle increasingly complex projects, there is often a blurring of the boundary between the marine and process industries, as well as between the operational roles within these disciplines. The new AVEVA World Summits recognise this trend toward industry convergence by combining different requirements and expertise into a single collaborative event. In 2010 we have extended the audience for our AVEVA World Summits to include the process, power, marine and offshore industries. The Summits bring together senior executives and engineering and information managers, from both EPC ( Engineering, Procurement and Construction) and Owner Operator companies, to network and discuss the opportunities offered by the latest engineering design and information management solutions. Why attend an AVEVA World Summit? Only at an AVEVA World Summit will you be able to: . Engage and debate industry issues that are strategic to the future success of your business. .
