Pumped Storage Power Station
Pumped storage power is a type of hydroelectric power generation that is
currently the most cost-effective means of storing large amounts of electrical
energy. China plans to increase its pumped storage power installed capacity
from 10. 9 to 50 gigawatts by 2020. Pumped storage power is increasingly
important to the grid due to its significant social and economic efficiencies in
energy savings, environmental protection, and lower carbon offsetting.
With the implementation of MicroStation, Project Wise, Bentley Architecture,
Bentley Structural, PlantSpace, promis•e, and Bentley Navigator, East China
Investigation and Design Institute (ECIDI) shortened the concentrated design
cycle from three months to two weeks. With this new technology, ECIDI has
become the top hydro-solution designer, winning the largest share of the
pumped storage power market ( 45. 7 percent) in China.
Engevix Engenharia S.A.
Caçu Hydroelectric Power Plant
The Caçu Hydroelectric Power Plant, a 65-megawatt facility located in midwest
Brazil, will generate enough energy to provide electricity to 470,000 people.
Because project teams were dispersed across six cities, Engevix Engenharia
re-evaluated existing workflows and implemented plans for optimization,
adaptation, and transfer of responsibilities to preserve and assure quality.
Project Wise automated messages for improved communication, controlled
workflows and work products, organized groups and access lists, and integrated
the managed workspaces into a controlled environment. The software
minimized time spent searching for and circulating documents and reduced
production time by about 40 percent.
