  • The situation
  • The solution

Documentation that doesn't accurately reflect "as-is" conditions is a poor foundation for plant design that can lead to safety issues or reworks that delay projects and increase costs. Scanning the facilities with traditional scanning methods can be very slow and costly. And what's the value of 3D scans without a platform where stakeholders can easily access them and collaborate?

The NavVis Digital Plant Solution gives engineers and asset owners access to digital as-built documentation and the ability to collaborate via an intuitive web interface. NavVis VLX captures point clouds with unprecedented speed and accuracy, while NavVis IVION makes your digital plant accessible from anywhere.

Use cases

Design and engineering Conceptual planning

Finding an economic and technically-feasible development concept involves specialists from multiple disciplines. In a COVID world, this has proven to be even more challenging, as it involves contractor job site walks. NavVis can help you properly plan and execute projects while maintaining schedule and budget. The spatial data that is obtained is processed to produce as-is documentation of your plant, which is critical to answering questions and concerns that your mechanical, electrical, or general contractors might have.

Design and engineering Model verification

NavVis high-quality point clouds of your as-built can be compared against your design model in 3rd party tools like AVEVA™ E3D Design. These captured points clouds ensure accuracy and reliability unlike manual methods of verification that are inefficient and expensive.

 

Design and engineering Collision detection

NavVis point clouds of your as-built can be compared against your design model in 3rd party tools like AVEVA™ E3D Design. 3D CAD designs are integrated with point clouds to confirm tie-in points and ensure the design is clash-free. Ensure your model is robust and identify clashes before construction starts to avoid time delays and material expenses.

Maintenance and operations Plant maintenance

High-quality point clouds for oil and gas facilities help ensure that operations are optimal by providing accurate sizing and fit data. A company can capture existing equipment with laser scanners to generate accurate data about its measurements and determine whether replacement parts will fit correctly. Also, for future plant expansions, up-to-date models of your facility can be used to accurately plan the new design and speed up the development schedule.

Maintenance and operations Regulatory verification

Having an accurate digital representation of your plant allows you to show regulators and inspectors what’s there before they walk the line. Make your plant accessible to every stakeholder from any standard web browser.

Integration

AVEVA Technology Partner

NavVis data can be imported into AVEVA Point Cloud Manager, where users can take measurements of the data, link with CAD systems, and publish the dataset to PCM Viewer for integration with the wider Digital Twin.
