PM3 quickly implements AVEVA NET to meet requirements for more efficient and accurate handover
Ba Ria-Vung Tau, Vietnam – 21 June 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), announced today that Phu My 3 BOT Company Limited (PM3) has successfully implemented AVEVA NET for the Phu My 3 Power Plant Project in Vietnam. PM3 required an information management tool to enhance the visibility and accuracy of the production, construction and maintenance information within its plant. AVEVA NET met all business and technical objectives, saving time, money and enabling the immediate access to crucial project information.
“AVEVA NET has allowed us to consolidate all project data in a single location that can be easily shared across the entire organisation”, said Mr. Yong Yoon Cho, Technical Director of PM3. “This is very significant as we can now obtain crucial data for our management of change (MOC). The AVEVA NET deployment makes the handover process one of the smoothest parts of a project rather than one of the more challenging. For PM3, AVEVA NET was the right choice. It was implemented quickly, efficiently and according to our exact requirements. The AVEVA implementation team was very proactive, providing excellent support and training which has enabled us to improve our business processes and plant operations.”
“We are delighted to work with PM3, a highly respected power plant company in Vietnam,” added Rozita Mohd Nor, Senior Vice President – Sales, AVEVA. “By accepting digital data from virtually any engineering application and making it available wherever and whenever it is required, AVEVA NET helps PM3 identify inconsistencies and information gaps early in the project. The impact on schedules and the cost of rework is vastly reduced. The implementation was both on schedule and within budget.”
AVEVA NET is a suite of powerful and secure information management solutions that enable the collation, contextualisation, validation and visualisation of all project and asset data and documents, irrespective of location or source program. Information can originate from AVEVA or third-party software, from business systems, or from tailored applications implemented by AVEVA’s Enterprise Solutions specialists.
