Software to be used on jack-up platform projects in the Caspian Sea
Moscow, Russia – 26 June 2012: AVEVA (LSE:AVV), announced today that VolgogradNIPImorneft has implemented AVEVA Marine for jack-up platform projects in the Caspian Sea. In addition to the AVEVA software, the contract includes a full range of services for implementation and training.
VolgodgradNIPImorneft Institute works on complex projects so selected a 3D engineering design solution that met the needs of a marine environment as well as specific design standards such as detailed piping design. They were using two divergent systems which were very inefficient and access for all project designers to work on the same model was a huge challenge. AVEVA Marine effectively addresses these issues. It enables concurrent, multi-location engineering and will help VolgodgradNIPImorneft Institute to attract new contractors to work on projects.
Evgeny Fedotov, Senior Vice President, Russia, India & Middle East, AVEVA comments, “VolgodgradNIPImorneft Institute will benefit from the fundamental capabilities of AVEVA Marine such as automatic change highlighting across technical disciplines, allowing engineering teams to greatly improve the ability to meet important project deadlines. By implementing AVEVA Marine and adopting AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design approach, they will improve project efficiency and reduce costs through a single managed information model”.
AVEVA Marine is a set of integrated applications created specifically for the unique processes of the engineering and design of ship and offshore structures, design management and the generation of accurate production information. To learn more about AVEVA Marine visit www.aveva.com/marine.
The VolgodgradNIPImorneft Institute carries out design and survey work associated with the development of oil and gas condensate fields, including all types of engineering, residential, social and industrial infrastructure. Until June 2011 it was the engineering centre for LUKOIL company, but in the middle of 2011 it was established as a separate enterprise. Over the past 10 years the Institute has been the lead organisation for coordinating the development of offshore and foreign deposits.
AVEVA is a leader in engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries. For more than 45 years it has delivered business critical software solutions to owner operators, engineering contractors and shipbuilders around the world.
