Strategic collaboration in China How SEDIN Engineering has put AVEVA technology at the heart of its long-term business strategy SEDIN Engineering Co., Ltd (SEDIN) is one of China's leading EPCs, with an impressive track record spanning many important industry sectors. In 2008 it became an AVEVA customer and quickly signed a strategic cooperation agreement that puts AVEVA's solutions at the heart of its long-term business strategy and strengthens AVEVA's position as a key technology provider to the Chinese plant industries. Since its foundation in 1958, SEDIN has built up an enviable reputation as a technology-driven EPC. By 2008, increasing demand for its services on ever more challenging projects had begun to reveal the limitations of its engineering design technology. This prompted a search for a more efficient and scalable solution that would support its continuing business growth. A trial of AVEVA PDMS™ quickly convinced SEDIN's engineers and managers of its capabilities and, supported closely by AVEVA China, the initial deployment was put to use on an alkene coal gasification project for the Shenning Group. Successful on-time delivery led to SEDIN increasing its AVEVA deployment; in 2011 it extended this again with a further 50 PDMS seats. From the outset, the relationship between SEDIN and AVEVA has been one of close partnership. With their deep experience of the application of technology in the engineering industries, AVEVA's consultants were able to work with SEDIN's engineers to develop more efficient workflows and business processes. The relationship grows From that first, successful PDMS trial in 2008, cooperation between SEDIN and AVEVA has continued to grow. In addition to SEDIN's increased deployment of PDMS, it has adopted more AVEVA products, including AVEVA VPRM™, AVEVA Diagrams™ and AVEVA Global™, all of which are now in daily use on a range of important projects. Paul Eveleigh, Executive Vice President, AVEVA, commented, 'China's engineering industry recognises the importance of using the most up-to-date technology to support world-class business performance. SEDIN's strategy is a good example of this in practice. Working with SEDIN's engineers to ensure a successful implementation of our solution, and then helping them develop more efficient working methods that take advantage of the technology, has been a rewarding experience for both parties. 'A successful relationship like this with such a highly regarded Chinese engineering company also helps to establish AVEVA as a credible technology partner in this economically important industry.' As a full-service EPC, SEDIN also extends the use of PDMS to the fabrication sites, making the model available to support efficient construction processes and to help quickly resolve any problems. The improved workflows developed at SEDIN have been so successful that SEDIN has now teamed up with AVEVA to promote these to the rest of China's chemical industry, pushing for them to be recognised as industry standards.
