INNOVATION IN CONSTRuCTION
Carpenterie ghedesi S.p.A.
new dryer tower for Zoogamma
Casal Buttano, Italy
Zoogamma retained carpenterie Ghedesi to design, construct, and install
two dryer towers for the production of powder serum used in zootechnics,
the technology of animal husbandry. The project in Italy included two towers
with three product storage silos, and the ancillary structures and services. A
challenging schedule was the major obstacle on this $4.6 million project.
The project team customized proSteel to create a series of parametric macros
that facilitated on-time delivery. The application enabled the team to produce
2D drawings from the 3D model, and then send shop drawings to the fabrication
workshop for cutting and drilling of individual pieces. This accelerated the
Arzew lng train (gl3Z)
In 2008, the Algerian oil company Sonatrach awarded Saipem, in joint venture
with chiyoda corporation, a lump-sum turnkey contract for the new Arzew lnG
Train (Gl3Z) project. The project encompassed engineering, procurement, and
construction of a single-train gas liquefaction plant with a production capacity
of 4. 7 million tons of liquid natural gas per annum. The $39.2 million plant will
be completed in 2012.
Saipem obtained numerous advantages from the first-time deployment of
constructSim on this project. Data stored in multiple systems, databases,
and spreadsheets were available in a single repository. Granular details
were accessible for project control. The graphic interface aided information
interpretation and decision-making. And comparison of planned vs. current
project status revealed the impacts of materials availability and other factors.
