Moscow, Russia, 2010/11/10 - AVEVA Group plc announced the signing of a contract to supply AVEVA Plant engineering and design software solutions to OJSC DneprVNIPIenergoprom, one of the largest engineering design institutes in Ukraine (LSE: AVV).
AVEVA Group plc one of the world's leading providers of engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, today announced the signing of a contract to supply AVEVA Plant engineering and design software solutions to OJSC DneprVNIPIenergoprom, one of the largest engineering design institutes in Ukraine.
The Institute decided, more than a year ago, to modernise its working processes by adopting a more effective project management system. Specialists at the Institute were thorough in their selection of design software, carrying out detailed evaluations of various solutions. Their final choice was AVEVA.
The transition to a PDMS-based design system is not just a major financial investment by the Institute, it demands a fundamentally new approach to engineering and design methods. Changing long-established work processes requires commitment and motivation from its participants, not least because 3D design involves new ways of thinking. AVEVA Plant solutions will provide the Institute with more effective tools for creating, modifying, visualising, navigating and validating a 3D model, as well as increasing productivity in important disciplines such as cable design and installation, P&ID development and in the creation of high-quality drawings and production documentation.
Commenting on this new contract win, Dirk Drozd, Vice President East EMEA, said ‘DneprVNIPIenergoprom selected AVEVA Plant solutions not only because of their superior performance but also because they have an unrivalled track record and extensive user base in the global power industry.
‘Both parties recognise the challenges of extensively modernising working methods. The Institute’s staff have shown high levels of commitment to this transformation and AVEVA has extensive experience of supporting customers through this critical phase. We welcome DneprVNIPIenergoprom to the AVEVA community and look forward to a long and successful working relationship.’
DneprVNIPIenergoprom is one of largest engineering design institute in Ukraine, acting as lead design authority on complex power projects and employing approximately 260 designers across the various engineering disciplines.
The Institute performs all types of design work in the construction and refurbishment of power facilities, including: thermal power and heating plants; boilers; heat distribution and heat exchange networks; electrical networks and high-tension substations; small hydroelectric plants; wind farms; other energy industry projects (such as water treatment plants, crude oil reservoirs, treatment facilities and repair shops); and industrial buildings and structures.
Tens of power generation projects, based on the Institute’s designs, are in operation or currently under construction in a number of Ukrainian, Russian and other CIS cities.
