Serra do Facao Hydroelectric Power Plant
Located on the São Marcos River in central Brazil, the $400 million Serra do
Facão Hydroelectric plant will provide energy to a region experiencing a high
level of economic growth. Development of the facility posed a challenge for the
multidisciplinary project team, which was geographically dispersed throughout
the local site engineering office, project partners, and the contract owner.
The solution was to use the collaborative technology of Project Wise, which
reduced travel time and provided team members with access to the right
information in real time. Project Wise reduced total project time by an estimated
Energotechnika Projekt Sp.z o.o.
EC Zeran Modernization
Energotechnika Projekt’s primary objective is to develop and execute capital
projects on schedule, within budget, and with operational excellence. For the
$55 million EC Zeran Modernization project in Warszawa, Poland, the firm
replaced an aging turbine with modern equipment that optimized the fluidized
boiler, enabling greater efficiency in thermal-to-electric energy conversion.
The challenge was to install the modern turbine in the existing facilities and
coordinate installation between branches within a short time. The design team
used Bentley Structural, AutoPIPE, and AutoPLANT to shorten design time and
reduce the number of people involved in the project.
