Project Summary

Project
The INR 880 million project to build a 2x250 megawatt thermal power plant in Chhabra, India is part of the modern plant development efforts in the region’s power generation hub. As a part of this project, Design Indure was responsible for the RCC works, turbine generator bay, boiler, coal handling, electro-static precipitator, ash handling and other works. To optimize design and subsequent construction and operation, Desein Indure needed flexible, interoperable software to create a virtual model of the plant.

Solution
Desein Indure used Bentley integrated design software to model a 3D preplanned layout of the plant, enabling dynamic walkthroughs for operations and maintenance personnel before construction. Desein relied on Bentley modeling tools, plant design software, and structural analysis software to generate an integrated model, facilitate data information exchange, and maximize workflow efficiency, optimizing project deliverables.

Outcome
Leveraging the interoperability of Bentley AutoPLANT, ProSteel, and Bentley speedikon Architectural, Desein Indure engineers improved productivity, reduced design cycle time, and cut costs through design optimization. The interoperability and user-friendly applications in Bentley AutoPLANT alone yielded close to 60% savings in time creating drawing deliverables. The efficient modeling capabilities of Bentley tools enabled Desein to determine accurate material takeoffs, contributing to procurement and construction savings.

Software
Integrating Bentley AutoPLANT, Bentley speedikon Architectural, and ProSteel enabled the direct exchange of data between the 3D plant model, process and instrumentation diagrams, and isometric and orthographic drawings to maintain consistent and up-to-date information. The information mobility and interoperability of Bentley software enhanced modeling and design capabilities, reduced rework, improved workflow and maximized efficiency of the project.
Outcome/Facts:
  • Integrating Bentley tools enabled Desein Indure to generate a collaborative model, facilitate data information exchange, and maximize workflow efficiency, saving time and optimizing project deliverables.
  • Using Bentley software’s 3D modeling capabilities, Desein Indure designed a pre-planned layout of the plant allowing dynamic walkthroughs for operations and maintenance personnel prior to construction.
  • Desein Indure leveraged the interoperability of Bentley products to improve productivity, reduce design cycle time and cut costs through design optimization.
