Beijing Shougang International Engineering Technology Co.
Application of Multidiscipline Coordination 3d design to Shougang Jingtang Iron and Steel Plant
As the technical general contracting institute for the Shougang Jingtang iron and
steel plant in Hebei Province, China, Beijing Shougang International Engineering
Technology undertook the feasibility study, general planning, and systematic
design organization and coordination. When the $7 billion plant is fully
operational in 2010, it will have two 5,500 cubic meter blast furnaces and an
annual capacity of 898,000 tons of pig iron, 970,000 tons of steel, and 9,130,000
tons of steel products.
The engineering firm implemented a multidisciplinary design environment
incorporating a series of Bentley products, including PlantSpace and Project Wise
as the design administration platform. The 3D model provided a way to analyze
design details, optimize the pipe network layout, eliminate interferences, and
automatically generate isometric drawings and bill of materials. These and
other efficiencies saved the project approximately $1.5 million.
Wire Rod Mill
MECON provided services for the $135 million Wire Rod Mill at an integrated
steel plant in Visakhapatnam, India. The mill has interconnecting piping for
oxygen, nitrogen, chilled water, high-pressure water, instrument air, hydraulic
oil, lubricating oil, and grease. The piping is laid out by system and runs along
the entire mill at different levels and across various locations.
Using AutoPLANT, ProSteel, and Project Wise Navigator saved man-hours and
costs by allowing designers to explore multiple what-if scenarios. These analyses
reduced engineering time by nearly 30 percent. The software integration added
immense value through plant commissioning and handover to the client.
