Istanbul, Turkey – 5 November 2014. AVEVA announced today that Tekfen Engineering, Turkey’s largest multidisciplinary Engineering, Procurement and Construction Management contractor (EPCm), has migrated to AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D), it’s most advanced 3D design software. Tekfen is renowned as an early adopter of innovative technologies and will be using AVEVA’s market-leading software solution to further increase their business efficiency through higher quality design deliverables and more effective multidiscipline collaboration.
Mr. Alparslan Gure, President of Tekfen Engineering, explained how using AVEVA E3D is increasing the company’s competitive advantage: ‘We have long recognised that AVEVA’s software is the industry standard for engineering and design. We have been impressed with AVEVA PDMS for many years; our migration to AVEVA E3D is a strategic investment to future-proof our business in the face of shortening project deadlines and higher expectations from our clients in terms of design outputs. Increasingly, our projects span continents and time zones, so the collaboration capabilities of AVEVA E3D will also help us to ensure that all stakeholders have the right information at the right time.’
‘Many of our long-established customers are recognising both the immediate and long-term benefits of migrating to AVEVA E3D, ’ said Dave Wheeldon, CTO, AVEVA. ‘The open and flexible nature of our technology, combined with tight integration with existing AVEVA engineering software means that Tekfen will be able to significantly increase efficiencies in their operations. It provides a powerful tool for visualizing their 3D designs and will enable them to eliminate costly project rework.’
Tekfen’s use of laser scanning technology also integrates seamlessly into AVEVA E3D, allowing their designers to quickly and easily understand the existing situation at the fabrication yard and/or construction site, and adjust their design work accordingly. These capabilities are especially valuable in brown-field projects, and help ensure that the required plant modifications can be designed and implemented more quickly and with greater accuracy than ever before, reducing both project schedule and plant downtime.
