AVEVA today announced that Eversendai Offshore, a brand new customer, has made a significant investment in AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design solutions through its deployment of AVEVA Marine. The agreement includes the full suite of AVEVA Marine engineering and design applications that will be used on a series of new marine and offshore projects, including topsides, platforms and ships. Rapid installation and minimal training requirements have allowed Eversendai Offshore to immediately begin using AVEVA Marine on major new contracts. The software was up and running in a matter of days with minimum disruption to engineering and business processes.
‘AVEVA Marine was the most talked about solution during our research of the market,’ said Suresh Ramadoss, Head of Engineering, Eversendai Offshore. ‘It is the best suited for marine and offshore projects and integrates with AVEVA’s PDMS software which is a massive bonus for Eversendai Offshore and our clients. It is also Citrix Ready, which gives us the flexibility to work on the same project across any of our offices. We have already seen how by working with AVEVA’s suite of integrated applications, we can minimise errors, save project time and reduce cost. This improves our return on investment and gives us a fantastic competitive advantage.’
Mr. Ramadoss continued, ‘One other major advantage is the automatic and accurate extraction of NC data directly from AVEVA software to the profile and plate cutting machines. This feature is extremely useful for new companies like ours since we can ensure that there are no errors in the NC code and it removes the need for 3rd party interface software.’
‘Maintaining data integrity is a huge issue for customers such as Eversendai as it can have a massive impact on project schedules and cost’, said Louis Khoury, Senior Vice President - Operations MEA, AVEVA. ‘AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design solution achieves optimised project efficiency by aligning applications across multiple disciplines. This results in higher quality deliverables and better schedule adherence, benefitting both Eversendai and its customers.’
Eversendai will operate AVEVA’s software across a number of offices in the Middle East and Asia.
