EMS-CHEMIE Moves to AVEVA Everything3D Mid-Project

Swiss chemicals company chooses AVEVA software to increase design efficiency

Sulzbach, Germany 10 December 2013: AVEVA today announced that EMS-CHEMIE has moved to the new AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D) software for the design of its chemical facilities. The EMS-SERVICES business unit of EMS-CHEMIE has successfully used AVEVA PDMS since 2004. Now it will benefit from the advanced functionality and improved design efficiency provided by AVEVA E3D; for example, the integrated drawing production that is exceptionally easy to use and produces deliverables much more quickly. This was just one of the drivers behind EMS-CHEMIEs decision to move to the next-generation AVEVA design software.

"We switched over right in the middle of an ongoing project, said Marco Derungs, AVEVA E3D Administrator, EMS-SERVICES. Thanks to its intuitive functionality, AVEVA E3D can be mastered quickly and the migration to productive operation took place rapidly. This smooth transition was due to the fact that AVEVA E3D and AVEVA PDMS are fully compatible and can be used simultaneously across the same project.

"The ability to automatically generate design drawings directly from the 3D model is a critical deliverable for EMS-SERVICES, explained Helmut Schuller, Executive Vice President EMEA, AVEVA. For other customers it may be the direct integration of as-built information in the form of 3D laser scans. We are seeing a wide variety of reasons why both EPCs and Owner Operators are deciding in favour of AVEVA E3D for their design departments. We have been very pleased by the number of customers in EMEA who have already made the decision to adopt or move to AVEVA E3D. It is very clear proof of the value that the new AVEVA E3D technology is bringing to their businesses."
