Oil and gas production in the offshore industry remains at a high level, and shipbuilding is more complex than ever. Hexagon PPM engineering solutions help create the most productive, efficient and safe environment for the offshore, and shipbuilding industries.

Marine engineering must deal with many obstacles: physical space constraints, extreme weather conditions, deep water, and remote locations. These constraints create an extreme environment for the engineer to develop a sound, reliable, and safe operating platform. Integration of hull and plant designs is another difficulty for the engineer to overcome. After an offshore facility is turned over to operations, the challenges do not become any easier. Maintaining and operating in a safe environment with access to accurate and reliable data to make informed decisions is critical to improving uptime.

Rishabh Engineering – which provides multi-disciplinary engineering services to the power, water, utility industries – partnered on the 105 MW Tarakhil Power Plant in Kabul, Afghanistan, to offer field engineering and an intelligent 3D model for the entire plant, including piping, equipment, civil and structural.

“CADWorx reduced the modeling man-hours by 30 percent, increasing overall productivity by 20 percent,” said Arpit Gupta, assistant manager of Business Development at Rishabh.

“We also achieved over 95 percent accuracy, extracting bills of material automatically from the model.”

CADWorx helped Rishabh to meet the project’s tight deadline and delivered a fully satisfied client.
