JSC “Institute Hydroproject” and NEOLANT Group of Companies signed the cooperation agreement to promote and implement projects of PJSC RusHydro on the basis of multidimensional modeling technologies in the design, reconstruction/construction and operation of hydropower facilities in Russia and abroad.
JSC “Institute Hydroproject” has been applying multidimensional modeling technologies to design new hydropower and waterworks installations for quite a long time; the design information model (IM) of a facility being the result. Besides, currently, the RusHydro Group manages more than 70 renewable power facilities under operation that do not have information models created. However, an information model is of high importance for the operation, reconstruction and modernization of the existing facilities since it makes possible to achieve the essential optimization of resources.
So as to convert a design model into the construction and operational one, a pilot project was implemented jointly with JSC NEOLANT on the basis of the Volga Hydroelectric Power Station. In the frame of this project, an InterBridge tool was used to “immerse” a model into the NEOSYNTEZ IT environment, a platform to manage the industrial facility life cycle. As a result, a digital prototype of the Volga Hydroelectric Power Station gained functionality necessary for the solution of applied tasks of construction, reconstruction and operation and the benefit from this multidimensional model increased by times for the direct owner, that is RusHydro. Eventually, the following effects can be achieved:
A successful implementation of the pilot project gives JSC “Institute Hydroproject” as well as NEOLANT GC specialists all grounds to offer the implementation of all projects on the basis of information modeling technologies in the reconstruction/construction and operation of all hydropower facilities managed by PJSC RusHydro both in Russia and abroad.
It should be noted that the advantages of such facility life cycle management have been already confirmed in other branches of the Russian industry that is proved, for example, by the effective management of such parameters as the budget, due dates, quality at implementation of the largest EPC projects.
“The reality is that it is important not only to implement projects of constructions but also to support their operation and to fulfil it in the most effective way. The creation of a multidimensional model and its application allow a significant increase of our competitiveness on the global stage as well. The implementation of information modeling technologies at PJSC RusHydro, being an integral part of the construction project and operation support, is a complicated but quite realistic goal. We are glad to be helped by specialists of NEOLANT GC. The use of import-independent products is now an essential requirement for the uninterrupted implementation of projects”,
