Puma Energy Selects Intergraph® CADWorx® Plant Professional
Fully intelligent 3D plant design and modelling solution enables the quick and accurate delivery of landmark Australian fuel import terminal22 settembre 2014
Puma Energy, the fuels retailing arm of Swiss-based commodities trader Trafigura, has selected Intergraph® CADWorx® Plant Professional to help deliver a landmark fuel import terminal in Queensland, Australia.
Puma Energy entered the Australian market in 2011 with a view to supply fuel to the country’s mining industry. The company identified the need to build its own fuel import terminal in Mackay, Queensland, to support its planned activities. A secondary goal of this investment was to strengthen competition and supply in Australia’s fuel market.
Puma Energy selected AutoCAD®-based CADWorx Plant Professional for its ability to complete a full model of the terminal – including all piping, structures, cable ladder, pipe supports and equipment – using a single Intergraph solution.
“I was incredibly impressed by CADWorx Plant Professional’s ease-of-use and ability to produce deliverables quickly and accurately,” said Michelle Guiney, Puma Energy’s design manager. “The solution was incredibly powerful and flexible.”
Given the positive experience noted on the Mackay fuel import terminal, Puma Energy intends to use CADWorx to drive efficiency and accuracy on a number of upcoming projects within Australia. It also plans to standardize all future greenfield and brownfield projects globally on CADWorx solutions.
“The Mackay fuel import terminal project was a significant one for the Australian oil and gas industry, given that one of its primary goals was to strengthen competition and supply in the market,” said Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President, Gerhard Sallinger. “We are proud that CADWorx Plant Professional played a pivotal role in helping to deliver the project.”
Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis Solutions products allow design and engineering to share relevant information seamlessly, thereby maintaining accuracy and improving efficiency. These include CADWorx Plant Design Suite, for AutoCAD®-based intelligent plant design modeling,process schematics and automatic production of plant design deliverables; CADWorx DraftPro®, for intelligent 2D design and layout; CAESAR II®, the world's most widely used pipe stress analysis software; PV Elite®, for vessel and exchanger design and analysis; TANK™, for the design and analysis of oil storage tanks; and GT STRUDL®, one of the most trusted, adaptable and fully-integrated structural analysis solutionsin the world.
