Spanish EPC achieves 40 per cent time savings with AVEVA Electrical

Paul Boughton

Initec Plantas Industriales, the principal subsidiary for Oil & Gas projects of Tecnicas Reunidas, has successfully deployed the AVEVA Electrical software on all of its projects. Initec chose AVEVA Electrical for its advanced capabilities, as well as for the long and trusted relationship the company has had with AVEVA. AVEVA’s high-quality configuration and support services, provided during a pilot deployment of the software, proved a decisive factor in Initec’s decision to roll out AVEVA Electrical on all its major capital projects.

“We wanted to eliminate inconsistencies between related engineering documents and to reduce the high number of design revisions,” said David Casado Ruiz, electrical manager, Initec Plantas Industriales. “We selected AVEVA Electrical because its user-friendly interface is designed specifically for engineers. You don’t have to be an IT specialist to use it. Because AVEVA Electrical is open and configurable, we were able to import data from spreadsheets and match the output formats with our existing engineering deliverables. But the most significant benefit from using AVEVA Electrical is the time we have saved issuing deliverables, such as interconnecting drawings and cable drum lists. We estimate the time reduction at 40%. We are now implementing AVEVA Electrical in all of our projects.”
