WINNER 3DDraughting | Saldanha Bay, Western Cape, South Africa
LPG Import and Storage Terminal
The scope of this project for Sunrise Energy included the mechanical design of the Sunrise Energy LPG Import and Storage Terminal, located in the
port of Saldanha Bay, South Africa. The completed terminal will be an open-access terminal, accessible to all qualifying LPG importers, wholesale
distributors, traders, and industrial LPG users. The project is part of the South African Government’s Department of Energy Strategy to supply LPG
to meet fuel and energy needs for all sectors of society.
3DDraughting used AutoPIPE, MicroStation, Bentley Navigator, Bentley OpenPlant, Project Wise, ProSteel, RAM, and STAAD.Pro for the
engineering challenges that included the highly sequential execution requirements of the project. The 3D design improved the efficiency of
engineering reviews and reduced decision errors and design clashes, enabling significantly more accurate fabricator contract management (fewer
deviations, site instructions, and compensation events).
