WorleyParsons’ UAE team, in conjunction with our Global Delivery Centre team in India, has successfully completed a 3-year project creating a digital asset database that accurately reflects a series of existing processing plants and marks a major step towards ADMA-OPCO’s path towards the “digital asset”. The “As-Built” project for ADMA-OPCO is considered one of the largest as-building projects ever undertaken.
WorleyParsons scope of work
The main scope of the project was to replace the existing Engineering Archive with an as-built data and document warehouse (EIMS - Engineering Information Management System) utilizing latest AvevaNet digital technology for ADMA-OPCO’s assets at two of their fields. The scope included data collection, site surveys, desktop verification, laser scanning, primitive and intelligent 3D models, along with P&ID and Instrumentation databases. In addition, as-built Process, Piping, Structural, Civil, Instrumentation and Electrical drawings and associated reports were also produced. All deliverables were then loaded into a pre-configured data warehouse which provides instant access to accurate and reliable information.
Customer Value Add
For operating companies, the biggest advantage of migrating from a plain, simple indexing system to an advanced platform incorporating intelligent technology means that it can accurately represent all of its assets in real-time. The system provides a single source of truth allowing concurrent access for operators, engineers, project teams and other end users to review information, perform virtual walk-arounds and inspect sites at the touch of a screen. This system puts the right information directly at the fingertips of decision makers, precisely when and where they need it, allowing them to review, design, plan and execute work efficiently and safely. The system significantly reduces the time spent in searching for accurate information with the new digital platform.
In addition to the advantages associated with maintaining existing assets, the system also has a role to play when planning for modifications as it helps reduce the time required to gather data for new projects which in turn can save extensive up-front costs.
“This is an accomplishment that directly illustrates the future of digital asset management and in turn how this contributes to digital transformation within our industry - the possibilities are endless,” commented Lindsay Wheeler, Manager of Engineering for the UAE & Qatar operation.
