WorleyParsons Resources & Energy, Abu Dhabi provided detailed engineering of a very complex pressure vessel design project. With significantly less experience in this industry compared to hydrocarbons, the project presented a number of issues that needed to be adequately understood and the associated risks effectively managed.
The design of static equipment is becoming more and more complex and challenging due to development in latest codes and standards, safety requirements, industry feedback, and customer requirements.
“In such a scenario, an engineering tool like PV Elite helps us in executing a complex project,” said Mitulkumar Patel, static equipment engineer for WorleyParsons. The firm has used Intergraph PV Elite extensively, and knew the software offered the latest pressure vessel codes and standards such as ASME Sec. VIII Div.1 and Div.2, PD5500, and EN 13445. Plus, PV Elite could produce deliverables on time with the highest accuracy.
“PV Elite is very user-friendly compared to other pressure vessel design software,” Patel said, “and it helped us make important decisions in optimizing the cost and weight of equipment.”
