INNOVATION IN MINING AND METALS
The Andina Division of CODELCO, a Chilean state-owned copper mining
company, asked Hatch Chile to develop a dynamic 4D environment to analyze
the engineering design, constructability, and safety conditions of projects
to be executed from 2010 to 2016 within a 2-kilometer area of the Phase II
Hatch Chile based the solution on the integration of Bentley 3D modeling tools to
create a visualization and review module. Leveraging the high-level capabilities
of Bentley Navigator, the solution enables dynamic 4D visualization and design
review of projects during a given time period within the area of interest.
HDO Technologies Limited
Vedanta Settler Washer
Located in Orissa, India, HDO Technologies was a relatively new user of
AutoPLANT when project team members were tasked with isometric generation
and material takeoff estimation for the Vedanta Aluminium Ltd. Settler and
Washer. The total number of lines involved in the project was 809, with 600
isometrics extracted and 163,409 inch meters as pipe material take-off.
AutoPLANT benefited the project by saving significant time. Bentley’s flexible
licensing enabled HDO Technologies team members to work concurrently, which
also helped to reduce man-hours. With the help of Bentley products, the firm
now has better coordination among various disciplines and a more coordinated
flow of information.
