ATTAINING Return on Innovation


Company Name Pacific Gas and Electric Company

WINNER

Project Name Bentley Substation Implementation


Location San Francisco, California, United States

VIEW PRESENTATION

Company Name Project Name


Location

Pacific Gas and Electrics Substation Engineering Services department is responsible for over 1,000 substations throughout its service territory, which spans two-thirds of California. Using traditional CADD methods required not only limited resources devoting significant hours to substation design, but it also had the potential to generate errors that ultimately led to costly rework in the field.

Using Bentley Substation allowed the team to utilize 3D symbols with an integrated database to link and track all components of the project design. The company expects to gain over 40 percent efficiency on its physical arrangement designs by using 3D symbols and automatic project documentation. It also foresees a gain of over 40 percent efficiency on schematics by using intelligent and integrated designs.

Projected annual savings based on 120 internal projects is USD 1.9 million on physical arrangements and USD 2.8 million on schematics. By gaining accuracy and efficiency on engineering drawings, the expected construction savings could average 40 man-hours per project, or USD 1 million annually. Total projected annual savings is projected to be USD 5.7 million. Taking the learning curve into consideration, this project could have a return on investment in less than two years.

Company Name Shaw Power Group Project Name Virginia City Hybrid Energy Center
LocationCity, Virginia, United States Virginia

WINNER

FINALIST
Company Name Project Name
Location

Shaw Power Group executed an engineering, procurement, and construction project to design and construct a 585 megawatt circulating fluidized bed (CFB) greenfield electric power generation station near St. Paul, Va. The USD 1.5 billion project included a 650 megawatt steam turbine generator and two CFB boilers, associated infrastructure and equipment, and vendor-supplied systems.

With four major areas of work being performed by various design firms using different design systems, Shaw configured Bentley PlantSpace so the vendor models were superimposed as one. The success of the Bentley PlantSpace, i-models, and Bentley Navigator coordination has resulted in Bentley Navigator becoming the preferred means of accessing all 3D design information at construction sites regardless of which CADD design system has been used.

The project was completed interference free with no rework on site because interferences were resolved in the 3D models. Design reviews were conducted efficiently and ahead of schedule by using i-models to collaborate and share information, and man-hours were reduced on site due to readily available, accurate quantities and 3D model visualization. ConstructSim, AutoPIPE, and Structural Modeler were also utilized.

WINNER

Project Name Wind Turbine Test Site


Location Lelystad, Netherlands

VIEW PRESENTATION

Company Name Project Name


Location

The reasons for wind energys rise to prominence may be well known, but perhaps less well known is that wind energy now accounts for over one-third of all capital expenditure in power generation, second only to thermal (coal and gas-fired) plants. At this USD 30 million test site in the Netherlands, Ecofys was able to reduce costs and improve safety and efficiency of wind turbines through better management of project and asset information throughout the lifecycle.

The high-level project goal was to increase the scale and minimize the complexity of the wind turbines, reduce project and construction costs, and make operations and maintenance more efficient. Through the use of AssetWise configuration management technology from the nuclear industry reapplied to the wind energy industry for an offshore wind farm with 30x3 megawatt turbines, Ecofys estimates it will achieve cost savings of USD 4.3 million over a 20-year lifetime.

Ecofys first identified information sources and relationships from which it was possible to build an intelligent asset register and comprehensive data model, and then focused on replicating and streamlining workflows around administrative tasks such as permit-to-work requests and other health, safety, and environment issues. These procedures were modeled in AssetWise to provide efficient and tight control of the information.

IDM E&C Woonmoon Dam Auxiliary Spillway
Daecheon-ri, South Korea
Located in North Gyeongsang Province, South Korea, Woonmoon Dam is threatened by unpredictable weather such as typhoons. An USD 87 million, tunnel-type auxiliary spillway is being constructed to improve dam safety and minimize environmental disruption. At 14.4 meters in diameter and 600 meters in length, the spillway required innovative construction methods to be completed within the tight schedule. IDM E&C developed 4D construction simulations to demonstrate equipment operations and procedures, and gather ideas for reducing costs and equipment idle time. Digital terrain models were used to demonstrate coinciding cut-andfill activity. The firm used MicroStation for 3D modeling, construction schedule, and method simulation; GEOPAK for 3D terrain modeling; and Bentley Navigator for construction simulation demonstration.

Shinryo Corporation Japan-China Friendship Center HVAC Renewal


Tokyo, Japan
The Japan-China Friendship Center in Tokyo, Japan, is a 37,792-square-meter facility with 12 stories above ground, four stories below ground, and an annex for offices, hotel, museum, school, and dormitories. Building equipment repairs are done during interim periods in spring and fall when cooling and heating systems are not operating. For this JPY 1 billion project, Shinryo had a 20-day window to replace HVAC equipment and restart operations. Given just two months to prepare after the March 2011 earthquake, Shinryo surveyed and measured the building, created a 3D building information model, prepared work plans, and added a time axis to achieve integrated project delivery. Using MicroStation to centralize the information reduced the effort to build the work plan from eight people over 60 days to five people over 50 days.

COWI India Private Limited 3D Property Mapping Using SOSI Standards
Oslo, Norway
Abstract 3D mapping of urban and semi-urban areas at scales larger than 1:1000 is complicated by the coexistence of manmade and natural features of various sizes and magnitudes. This project developed a 3D digital database for managing land in urban areas within Oslo, Norway. In addition, the 3D geospatial vector data was converted to the countrys standard GIS format, Systematic Organization of Spatial Information (SOSI). COWI India customized MicroStation to extract, integrate, and convert the data to SOSI format. The digital environment maintained planimetric accuracy of 0.15-0.55 meters for higher level and 10 to 50 meters for lower level data. Terrain information was three times more accurate than the allowed tolerance for height per SOSI requirements. MicroStations flexibility allowed geodatabases to be migrated and integrated with external GIS environments.

Slim River, Sungkai, Tapah, and Tanah Rata, Malaysia
As the largest electricity utility in Malaysia, Tenaga Nasional Berhad needs accurate digital terrain models (DTMs) during the preliminary design stage of transmission line route planning. Airborne LiDAR presented an affordable solution for obtaining point-cloud data, but the data set tended to be unwieldy for use in visualization. Tenaga Nasional Berhad invested USD 500,000 to implement MicroStation as its LiDAR point-cloud data processing platform. Integrated with Terrasolid applications, MicroStation enabled the display, navigation, and visualization of data. Using GEOPAK data acquisition tools enabled the generation of DTMs from point-cloud data with high-resolution imagery dynamically draped on top of the DTMs. This solution eliminated the need for high-end workstations to manipulate LiDAR data. The tools streamlined workflows and improved outputs for better client communications.
