Abu Dhabi Marine Operations’ EPC deploys plant design management system

National Petroleum Construction Co. implements AVEVA PDMS on Umm Shaif redevelopment.

Abu Dhabi-based National Petroleum Construction Co. (NPCC) has selected Aveva’s Plant Design Management System (PDMS) for use on its part of Abu Dhabi National Oil Co. unit ADMA-OPCO’s Umm Shaif redevelopment project. Aveva PDMS will initially be used for two new well head towers and two new 24" sub sea pipelines, each starting from the new well head to the existing Umm Shaif Super Complex (USSC). Aveva PDMS will support front end design to construction.


Ahmad Kurdali, Engineering Manager of NPCC said, ‘We will be using PDMS throughout all phases of the project. After the 3D modeling and design, the design drawings and isometrics will be generated by PDMS. We will also be integrating the PDMS model with the structural steel detailing software to optimize the production of fabrication drawings.’


The first edition of Aveva’s customer magazine, ‘Pipeline,’ covers a flagship PDMS deployment on Statoil’s Statfjord A Platform. Statfjord was laser-scanned in 2002 and tied to a 3D PDMS model. The company has now standardized on PDMS for all new projects. PDMS underpins Statoil’s ongoing maintenance and plant upgrades. The company maintains 3D modeled PDMS data for the complete lifecycle of each project. Statoil also leverages AVEVA’s ‘Global’ solution for multi-site concurrent working.
