Techin Process Technologies Pvt Ltd, based in Mumbai, India, is a design and engineering services company supporting the delivery of varied types of process plant design projects. The company was selected for a brownfield project to design a distillation complex for a chemical plant in India.
Techin’s client emphasized a design with minimal construction errors and that safety and industry standards must be met. With this in mind, Techin needed software solutions that would enable them to produce accurate, high-quality designs. Because of the tight time frame, Techin needed solutions that would easily interface and work together, increasing productivity and enabling on-time project delivery. After evaluation of different solutions, Techin felt it was time to make the switch from other CAD solutions to CADWorx Plant Professional from Hexagon. Already being familiar with other CAD software, switching to CADWorx was a smooth and swift transition.
The project began with the conceptual design. This involved utilizing CADWorx Plant Professional and BricsCAD to develop the initial 3D design. Next, the detailed design of equipment and piping was created in CADWorx Plant. Stress analysis was the next stage of the project. The detailed analysis was carried out in CAESAR II, with files seamlessly transferred from CADWorx for analysis. By utilizing CAESAR II, Techin could run the tests in accordance with more than 35 international piping coding standards and equipment guidelines.
Post-construction, based on site mark-ups, Techin raised the 3D design model to as-built status for the client. The distillation complex’s design was completed on schedule, meeting the deadline and the client’s demand for an accurate and safe design to be produced for their plant.
By creating error-free designs, Techin reduced re-work required in the design and construction phases of the chemical distillation complex project. This ensured the clients’ satisfaction by meeting deadlines and providing an economical design.
The most significant benefit from switching from other CAD solutions to CADWorx Plant Professional has been the time savings achieved through the optimization of work processes during the project. The integration and flexibility between Hexagon solutions ensured the accuracy and productivity of processes for the team and Techin’s client.
