Bentley Systems wins downstream award for digitalisation

ImageSoftware Provider Bentley Systems was named a winner at the Downstream Awards

Bentley won in the innovation in downstream digitalisation category for Dow Chemical Company’s (Dow) use of its ConstructSim application.

The awards celebrate the best of the downstream industry and are organised by Petrochemical Update, a division of Reuters Events. The awards were announced in 11 categories, with winners chosen by a panel of 10 judges representing the industry.

Anne-Marie Walters, industry marketing director, oil and gas and manufacturing at Bentley Systems, said, “We are honoured to have received this award, which recognises Bentley as a provider of digital construction workflows, for the advancement of infrastructure projects, and specifically for Dow’s outstanding work of integrating advanced work packaging (AWP) into its global project methodology.”

The implementation of AWP methods with ConstructSim helped Dow achieve tool time results for piping and structural steel. Structural steel wrench time performance improved to 70 per cent and piping wrench time performance rose to 63 per cent, while the industry average wrench time is 37 per cent. Other non-quantifiable benefits were the transparency of construction progress, as Dow was able to use the ConstructSim model in weekly construction status meetings.

Susan Brandt, the vice-president, business development at DCW, commented, “Dow is applying AWP as a program on capital projects of all sizes. After evaluating several other software packages, Dow selected Bentley’s ConstructSim to automate AWP on a programmatic basis. The team architected its methodology to make AWP via ConstructSim scalable, targeting its implementation on any project valued at more than US$10mn.”
