Chalmers Engineering chooses AVEVA Bocad

AVEVA announced today a leading Oil & Gas EPC, Chalmers Engineering (L.L.C.), based in the United Arab Emirates, has selected AVEVA Bocad for the structural steel detailing of its onshore and offshore projects. Already using AVEVA’s 3D design modelling software, Chalmers is now able to seamlessly add AVEVA Bocad to its design process, via the AVEVA Bocad Steel Interface. 

"AVEVA software gives us more accurate fabrication deliverables for the specific needs of the industry we serve," said George Kurien, Senior Design Engineer at Chalmers. "Its key differentiator was how easily it could integrate structural steel detailing into 3D design. The combination of AVEVA Bocad Steel and AVEVA Bocad Offshore helps us save time due to the automated engineering process and we no longer need to rely on manual 2D tools for our structural steel design." 

"Conventionally, steel detailing is outsourced to specialist contractors, breaking the necessary close integration between piping and structural design, and creating opportunities for inconsistencies, clashes, costly rework and project delays," said Louis Khoury, SVP of Operations - MEA. "Yet AVEVA’s strategic acquisition of the Bocad software, and subsequently FabTrol, enables close collaboration, high productivity and reduced business risk in the integration of plant structural and piping design."

Work will begin this year on an offshore project for the Kuwait Oil Company using the the expanded software solution.
