The Drivers of Success Awards recognize the most innovative use of Intergraph CADWorx®, CAESAR II®, and PV Elite® products. The 2015 award winners are:
Ren Jianchun of China Hi-Tech (Jiangxi) Textile Design Institute Co., Ltd. used CADWorx for an 80,000-tons-per-year viscose staple fiber production facility. Three-dimensional design work included more than 3,000 pipelines with a total length of 55,000 meters and 64,000 fittings. The accuracy of the material list grew to 95 percent and about 2,120 labor hours were saved. The company, which was founded in 1958, has 80 employees and focuses on textile industry projects, including textile engineering, printing engineering, chemical engineering and chemical fiber raw materials engineering.
Sonali Parekh of L&T Valdel Engineering Limited used CAESAR II for a floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel that is turret-moored with risers in a maximum water depth of 1,425 meters. The process plant has capacity to produce and treat 80,000 bpd of crude oil, 65,000 bpd of produced water (non-concurrent) and 180 MMscfd of gas. LTV developed a macro to interface between PDMS and CAESAR II, saving 85 percent of modeling time. L&T Valdel Engineering Limited is the engineering group of Larsen & Toubro Limited’s upstream oil and gas operating company. It provides engineering services for oil and gas projects spanning diverse lines of business like well head and process platforms, FPSO topsides, pipeline systems and drilling rigs.
Rohitash Panwar of WorleyParsons used PV Elite for more than 300 mechanical design calculations that were performed in PV Elite and TANK™ for an upstream production facilities and infrastructure project to meet a target of 1.2 million bpd of oil production. The team reduced the number of labor hours while gaining high accuracy in comparison to performing the calculation in manual spreadsheets. WorleyParsons is a multinational company comprising 35,100 employees, throughout 157 offices in 46 countries. It delivers projects, provides expertise in engineering, procurement and construction and offers a wide range of consulting and advisory services in the hydrocarbons, mineral, metals, chemicals and infrastructure sectors.
