Volga standardises on AVEVA Plant software

October 7, 2013 - Volga NIPITEK, a Russian engineering contractor (EPC) in the oil & gas and petrochemicals industries, has rapidly gained benefits from its deployment of AVEVA Plant engineering and design software. Following the initial contract signing at the AVEVA World Russia User Meeting in March, Volga NIPITEK experienced positive benefits within only three months by delivering its first project, a 3D model of a short-cycle hydrogen adsorption unit.

Volga NIPITEK acquired a range of products from the AVEVA Plant portfolio, including AVEVA Diagrams, AVEVA Instrumentation and AVEVA PDMS. Due to a particularly tight project deadline, AVEVA completed the training of the Volga NIPITEK engineers within one month and the software was quickly deployed.

“We see 3D design as the future for Volga NIPITEK,” explained Sergey Lesuhin, General Director, Volga NIPITEK. “Not only do Owner Operators require a 3D plant model as a standard deliverable on all projects, these detailed models help us to increase our competitiveness when tendering for new contracts. AVEVA software enables us to do this by improving project quality and reducing design time. Making the decision to switch to 3D demonstrates a firm commitment to quality and efficiency for our customers”.

Volga NIPITEK conducted a thorough assessment of the market, evaluating six different engineering software providers before selecting AVEVA. The software was evaluated on various defined criteria, including ease of use, rapid start up and integration with other engineering tools.

“AVEVA’s competence and keenness were also a key reason for our selection,” added Andrey Buhvalov, Head of 3D Design Team, Volga NIPITEK.  “AVEVA provided very effective training courses for our designers and engineers and rapid software implementation. Our team had a very positive experience. Any issues were dealt with quickly, which enabled us to immediately start work on a very complex project and to complete it in record time.”

“This is a great example of how quickly an EPC can realise clear project benefits from our software,” said Evgeny Fedotov, Senior Vice President Russia, India & Middle East, AVEVA. “Volga NIPITEK’s skill and determination, coupled with the support of the AVEVA team, puts them in a great position to efficiently deliver high-quality deliverables for increasingly complex and sophisticated projects.”

The AVEVA Plant portfolio is part of AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design approach which improves project efficiency and reduces engineering and design costs by offering complementary products that draw on common processes, disciplines and deliverables, through a single managed information model.
