World’s largest publicly owned EPC selects AVEVA VNET
15 February 2007
AVEVA (LSE:AVV), leading provider of plant design and engineering lifecycle solutions, today announces that the Fluor Corporation has selected AVEVA’s VNET system to manage the information and handover requirements of a major engineering project in Africa.
Fluor Corporation, one of the world's largest publicly owned engineering, procurement, construction, and maintenance services companies, selected AVEVA VNET because of its ability to deliver on Fluor’s key selection requirements. These included a quick and efficient implementation and the immediate realisation of business benefits to the project.
Alex Giles, Project IM Lead of Fluor Corporation comments:
“Following an evaluation of various products, there were a number of key benefits that we identified that AVEVA VNET provides. These include delivering Seamless Handover from multiple data sources where the handover requirements are governed by detailed client requirements. Also, AVEVA VNET will improve the quality and organisation of engineering data resulting in faster, more intuitive access to information. In turn, this will reduce search time, avoid inconsistencies and improve the coordination of key functions, delivering increased productivity and efficiency in project execution and handover.
“A major benefit for us is the short implementation timeframe - three months - which will ensure early operational availability and provide immediate benefits to the project schedule.”
Richard Longdon, CEO of AVEVA comments:
“We’re delighted to be working with such a market leader in this field. Amongst other business benefits, the AVEVA VNET system offers Fluor Corporation the ability to provide earlier visibility of engineering information to the customer through a continuous handover process greatly reducing the cost of handover and helping de-risk the plant operation.”
