Re-use of Design Data for the Safe Operation of the Plant
The challenge: The Energy Information Administration projects strong growth for worldwide energy demand—a 57 percent increase over 26 years. But governments are establishing limits on the emission of carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, and mercury and so power companies are looking for ways to bring new alternative power processing plants onto the grid more quickly.
The solution: The Bentley power generation solution leverages investments made in capital projects and facilitates re-use of this engineering data for the safe operation of the plant and its assets.
The Bentley power generation solution provides a comprehensive solution for conceptual design, detail design, operation, and maintenance with data-exchange connectors based on ISO15926 data models that facilitate interoperability with many forms of legacy data.
Key components of the solution are:
- Design and engineering tools seamlessly integrated together across the multiple disciplines involved that help compress project cycles and bring new plants into production faster and minimize downtime on revamps to existing plants.
- Configuration management and change management tools to help ensure that the construction, operation, maintenance, and testing of the physical facility are in accordance with the design requirements as expressed in the design documentation for regulatory compliance, and help maintain consistency throughout the operational life-cycle phase, particularly as changes are being made.
