Engevix Engenharia S.A.
Hydro Power Plant São domingos
Água Clara, Brazil
Engevix Engenharia designed the $150 million, 48-megawatt Hydropower Plant
São Domingos in Brazil with project team members spread across multiple
offices. It was critical that information be available to the geographically
separated partners, including an important turbine supplier in China. This
collaborative approach enabled Engevix to negotiate a 45 percent better deal
than was available from local suppliers.
Using Project Wise, MicroStation, MicroStation PowerDraft, InRoads,
TriForma, PlantSpace, Bentley Structural, and Bentley Building Mechanical
Systems, Engevix has established intelligent design environments, enabling its
designers to become 30 percent more productive. Its supply chain is also in this
environment and it has decreased revisions by 70 percent. Since implementing
Project Wise, Engevix has set up more than 700 users on 160 different projects.
Integrated Engineering Management System for Eskom Lethabo Power Station
Vereeniging, South Africa
The goal of this project in South Africa was to implement an integrated
engineering business process and engineering documentation management
system to provide the power station with standardized processes, consolidation
and integration capabilities, visibility of and access to engineering information,
control of engineering processes, and a digital plant visual platform.
The project required a greenfield implementation of document management
technology, creation of new intelligent drafting symbology and standards, and
extensive retrofit of historical engineering and plant information. A customized
Project Wise delivered a 57 percent ROI on the project, 30 percent engineering
productivity savings, 50 percent administration productivity savings, and 30
percent redrawing cost savings.
