The downstream process of refining oil and natural gas feedstock into a variety of petroleum distillates is a significant industry unto itself. Like the Oil and Gas industry, the Petrochemical industry consists of extensive plant facilities, is process intensive, and represents a substantial contributor to numerous other industries and economies around the world. Petrochemical plant design is conducted by many of the same EPC firms, contractors, and suppliers that offer the Oil and Gas industry sophisticated project execution services and advanced design capabilities. CADWorx Plant Professional software meets the demands of the Petrochemical industry in kind.
Mahler AGS Cuts Design Time with CADWorx Plant Professional
Mahler AGS, a global leader in designing and manufacturing hydrogen generation plants, built a new hydrogen generation plant in record time with CADWorx Plant Professional.
The EPC was asked to design and manufacture a modular hydrogen plant for a leading global company in the palm oil business. As part of the modular design principle, Mahler pre-assembled and delivered the plant as prefabricated units.
Mahler AGS was looking to replace its existing design software (X-Plant) that also included a modern 3D planning solution. The new system needed to be compatible with the previous AutoCAD-based software, was easy-to-use, and was fast to implement so it could minimize project downtime and delay. CADWorx Plant Professional was chosen due to its AutoCAD-based structure, scalability, and suitability for the project scope.
Ultimately, by choosing CADWorx Plant Professional, Mahler AGS reduced project man-hours by 10 to 15 percent.
“With CADWorx, we completed the project in 15 percent less time than our initial estimate, and our client was highly satisfied with the quality it provided and began using us on other projects,” explained Jesus Espiga, piping engineer at Vepica.
