The 2016 Drivers of Success recipients are:

  • CADWorx – Rishabh Engineering, India, for building a 105 MW power plant with 18 generators in three power blocks. The team used CADWorx to perform field engineering and develop an intelligent 3D model for the whole plant, reducing modeling work hours by 30 percent and improving productivity by 20 percent.
  • CAESAR II – China Huanqiu Contracting & Engineering Corp., China, for the world’s largest indirect coal liquefaction project. CAESAR II was used on this $10 billion project to increase the design quality of 13,450 process pipelines and reduce the stress analysis time by 20 percent.
  • GT STRUDL – Southern Nuclear Operating Company, United States, for a $10 million Digital Turbine Controls project to upgrade analog technology to all new digital controls. GT STRUDL saved $3 million on the project by significantly reducing the structural modifications required for cable tray supports and minimizing the outage execution time.
  • PV Elite – Larsen &Toubro Heavy Engineering LLC, Oman, for designing and manufacturing five high-pressure columns. This critical equipment is the heart of the entire refinery. PV Elite helped the team perform fast calculations and better control revisions.

The 2016 runners up are Vepica Piping Department, U.S., and Zhejiang Engineering Design Co., Ltd, China, for CADWorx; L&T Chiyoda Limited, India, L&T-Valdel Engineering Ltd, India, and Bluewater Energy Services, India, for CAESAR II; and Air Liquide Global E&C, India, and Tecnimont, India, for PV Elite.
