INITEC Energía integrates engineering & design with AVEVA

AVEVA announced today that INITEC Energía, one of the largest engineering companies in Spain within the electricity generation sector, has extended its Integrated Engineering & Design (IE&D) strategy through the addition of AVEVA Instrumentation software. An existing AVEVA customer, INITEC Energia replaced a competitive product, with the latest release of AVEVA Instrumentation to improve engineering and design efficiency.

INITEC Energía was concerned by the lack of integration between its old software and the larger design process, which required the use of awkward Excel spreadsheets to export data. Using the expanded AVEVA IE&D solution, INITEC Energía has now eliminated the need for manual intervention, ensuring information is visible between disciplines and across the entire project, improving design accuracy and avoiding costly reworking.

AVEVA is the only supplier that can give us total integration across our engineering and design tools’, said Alejandro Rodriguez, Head of IT Department INITEC Energía. ‘In the past, our instrument engineers had difficulties in identifying the right data and synchronising key information with other disciplines. This lack of integration extended our design time and increased project cost. These issues are virtually eliminated with the AVEVA Instrumentation software and by offering complete technical assistance to implement our first project, AVEVA gave us the confidence to switch products and benefit from a truly integrated approach’.

AVEVA IE&D is the most powerful solution on the market today; helping companies like INITEC Energía  improve project efficiency through the tighter integration of engineering and design disciplines’, said Evgeny Fedotov, SVP – EPC Sales, AVEVA. ‘This implementation demonstrates how easy it is to add a new product into an existing project environment and the compelling benefits that can be achieved in the improved quality of deliverables and greater project predictability.’

AVEVA Instrumentation is feature-rich software for instrumentation engineering and design in plant and marine projects. It’s advanced graphical user interfaces, advanced cable routing integration capabilities, use of design rules and catalogues for data creation; offer maximum workflow flexibility, improving project productivity and design quality. AVEVA Instrumentation is part of AVEVA’s Integrated Engineering & Design solution.
