Located in Fangchenggang, a harbor city at the southernmost tip of the Qisha Peninsula in Guangxi province, the Jinchuan Group’s 400,000
ton-per-annum Copper Smelting Project is part of the Guangxi Jinchuan Non-Ferrous Metals Processing Program. The CNY 12. 43 billion
project began in 2009, and the product line went into production in late 2013, becoming one of the largest comprehensive copper smelting
programs in China.
The project leveraged Bentley’s 3D design solutions, which provided unprecedented accuracy and precision. The clash detection capability
alone revealed thousands of problems that would have gone undiscovered in 2D. Other benefits included simultaneous collaborative design,
real-time synchronization among disciplines, speedy review and approval, and unified design standards and specifications. MicroStation,
Project Wise, and Bentley OpenPlant helped to decrease design time from 24 months (using 2D) to 18 months (using 3D).

Heqing Phase-I Project
Yunnan Aluminum Co. Ltd. is building a CNY 2.43 billion aluminum metallurgy and processing operation in Heqing County, Yunnan Province,
China. The Heqing Phase-I Project involves construction of a continuous casting and rolling workshop, plate and strip workshops, laboratory,
mechanical repair workshop, boxing workshop, substation and transmission line, water treatment circulating system, air compression
system, office building, dormitory, and other facilities.
Guiyang Aluminum Magnesium Design & Research Institute performed collaborative 3D design on the Bentley platform, which enabled
models to be shared by all disciplines. Project Wise, MicroStation, PlantSpace, Bentley Raceway and Cable Management, Bentley
Substation, ProSteel, Bentley Navigator, Bentley i-models and other products enabled designers to assemble a complete plant model and
substantially eliminate collisions and omissions. This minimized construction changes and lowered the owner’s costs.
