Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited
interoperable Approach for Structural Engineering From conceptual Design to Fabrication
Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal, India
Engineers at india-based Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited had a vision for
creating an interoperable approach to structural engineering from conceptual
design to fabrication. Their goal was to eliminate the hierarchical structure of
serial information flow and incorporate a 3D model-based conceptualization
This vision included integrating various stages to build a design chain by
utilizing intelligent 3D modeling technology and various other design and
detailing tools. The result of this integrated approach creates a single-point
data entry, eliminates errors and redesign, and reduces costs. Bharat was able
to achieve its goal by deploying S TAAD.Pro.

Patnow I Power Plant – Reconstruction of Units 1 to 4
the Patnow i Power Plant has had a considerable impact on the economic
development of the Wielkopolska region in Poland. Reconstruction and
modernization of the 40-year-old units will sustain their operation for an
additional 25 years, increase the power of one unit to 225 megawatts, and meet
increasingly stringent environmental requirements. The project comprised more
than 500 models of structure, piping, mechanical equipment, HVAC, and cable
traces, for which the team used Project Wise to exchange information.
This large project was divided into separate areas. Architects, engineers,
and constructors in each area used a range of Bentley solutions to design
multidisciplinary buildings. The design team improved productivity across
design disciplines by sharing information more effectively, reducing redesign
costs, and reducing project man-hours.
