Larsen & Toubro Heavy Engineering was assigned the design and manufacture of five large diameter, high pressure columns for a refinery facility in Liwa, Oman. The project required complete mechanical design and fabrication per ASME Sec VIII Division 1 and 2 codes and included the nozzles, platforms, internal components, pipe loading, and other elements.
“With a project of such large size and complexity in design, Intergraph PV Elite helped us to efficiently resolve various calculations and double-check possible conditions for our client,” said Apurva Patel, assistant manager of Engineering at L&T. Meeting deadlines is very important for manufacturers if they are to satisfy the client’s requirements and build trust for future business opportunities.
“Without PV Elite software, we would have experienced delays at the start of the project that would impact the whole subsequent manufacturing cycle time due,” explained Patel.
This would cause a loss of money and lower the level of trust of the client in the firm’s capabilities. The large complex design benefited from the PV Elite 3D model, which allowed for checking for clashes and other issues before preparing the drawings. L&T could then finalize the locations of nozzles to accommodate piping requirements.
