The goal of this EUR 30,000 project for Airbus Operations by Caadplan was to survey an airplane hangar in Hamburg, Germany, using 3D
laser scanning to produce data that then would be transmitted to other departments for collision detection and further processing.
A requirement of the project was that it needed to be completed without disrupting or impeding construction of the hangar.
The use of MicroStation and Bentley Architecture enabled smooth 3D data interchange among all project participants, and the precise 3D
modeling identified collisions and obstacles early in the planning phase. Caadplan reduced the overall cost of the project and minimized or
avoided risk by deploying multidisciplinary software that produced a variety of data formats that could be shared among the

Information System for Decommissioning Industrial Uranium-graphite Reactors
Operators of Russian nuclear power plants have adopted the concept of decommissioning based on the deferred dismantling of radioactive
structures. Given the potential duration, complexity, and risk inherent in the decommissioning process, regulatory and technical guidance
documents stipulate the creation of an information system database and the construction of a 3D simulation model of the decommissioning
of industrial uranium-graphite reactors.
For this project in the Chelyabinsk Region of Russia, Mayak developed 3D models using MicroStation and created the decommissioning
database information system through Project Wise. This enabled centralized access to a unified database that will preserve and transmit
documents and data on the radiation-hazardous facility to those who will handle the dismantling as well as the management of the
