Integrated Engineering & Design Brings Significant Advantages for INITEC Energía AVEVA Diagrams enables productivity and workflow improvements. INITEC Energía is one of Spain's largest engineering companies, focusing its activity on the construction of electricity generation facilities. With its 50 years of experience, it is active in both the domestic and the international markets. The company has been a major user of AVEVA PDMS™ for 3D design for over 20 years. More recently, the company introduced AVEVA Diagrams™ for P&IDs. AVEVA met Sangeetha Narayan, IT Manager and Alfonso Plaza Pérez, Piping Stress & Supports Manager, to discover more about how the combination of PDMS and Diagrams is bringing benefits to their company and their customers. Extensive use of AVEVA PDMS 'INITEC Energía is a long-term user of PDMS,' explained Alfonso Plaza Pérez. 'We use PDMS on every project we undertake. This has been the case, not only since 2005, when I moved into my current role, but also, for a long time before that since 1996. 'The number of PDMS users in our company has increased significantly in the last few years, largely as a result of the company's drive for increased efficiency. The adoption has been strongly supported by our senior management who are convinced of the value of the technology, especially its ability to improve interdisciplinary coordination. 'PDMS is used for the design and detailing of all piping including insulation, and also for raceway design,' he continued. 'Our support designers use AVEVA Multi-Discipline Supports™ (AVEVA MDS™) with PDMS for the detail design of all supports. The main structure and civil work are included in the 3D model, to aid coordination between disciplines, as are items such as electrical cabinets and online and offline instruments.' Introduction of AVEVA Diagrams In 2011, the company decided to extend its use of the AVEVA suite and to switch to AVEVA Diagrams for P&IDs as part of an Integrated Engineering & Design strategy, and they have seen many benefits as a result.
