Foster Wheeler Ltd.
Lower Mount Bethel Energy Plant
Bangor, Pennsylvania, United States
The Lower Mount Bethel energy plant meets Pennsylvania and New Jersey’s
growing demand for electricity. Because the plant burns natural gas to produce
energy and steam, the design is among the most efficient and environmentally
sound in the current energy market. Successful project completion hinged on
the design team’s ability to maintain the schedule by limiting rework.
Using Project Wise and PlantSpace, Foster Wheeler created a 3D model used
throughout the project lifecycle. The design team used the visualizations to
secure permits and develop construction sequencing and accessibility studies.
The modeling software provided up-to-the-minute information, resulting in
fewer interferences and ultimately a more constructible unit.
Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant
Information System “decommissioning database of Leningrad nuclear Power Plant”
The Leningrad Nuclear Power Plant began operation in 1966 with a service life
that expires in 2015. Decommissioning the facility can take as long as 90 years so
large-scale dismantling of the facility won’t begin until the 22nd century. However,
a system to archive all necessary information for the future generations of
specialists that will work on the decommissioning was needed to avoid mistakes
when the decontaminating and dismantling is performed in future years.
The project team used Project Wise as the core system for managing documents
and other information. The team converted technical documentation to
electronic form and placed it in managed storage. Additionally, Bentley’s
PlantSpace technology allowed the team to develop complicated large-scale 3D
models of the facilities for decommissioning.
