Tupras’ ambitious project aims to maximise production, increase safety and extend the life of its four refineries.

Aveva Everything3D (Aveva E3D), together with Aveva Diagrams, Aveva Electrical and Aveva’s laser scanning solutions will play a key role in a major brownfield revamp programme.

The Aveva laser data software will be used to capture the new and existing assets, with as-built design documents will be created with Aveva E3D and a range of schematic products. The integrated engineering and design approach will help Tupras to meet revamp/modification project schedules while dramatically improving quality.

“We chose Aveva for a number of reasons,” said M. Murat Kalkanli, Tupras projects and investments director. “The proof of concept demonstrations gave us confidence that the technology lived up to its reputation as the industry standard. It was also important to find a tightly integrated engineering and design solution that was open enough to work with our existing software and that of our engineering contractors. Additionally, Aveva’s engineering and design software is widely used across the oil and gas sector, making collaboration between in-house teams and partners seamless, even across global teams. Finally, their local sales, scanning partners and technical team provided great service, working closely with us on-site, to ensure that our requirements can be fully met.”

“Tupras are being very forward thinking with this project and we are proud to be a part of it,” said Dave Wheeldon, CTO and head of engineering and design systems, Aveva. “They are creating an accurate digital asset that directly reflects their physical asset. This will be invaluable for their revamp activities, but also for years to come as part of operations and maintenance. This digital asset vision is hugely compelling for our customers and is helping EPCs and owner operators around the world better manage their projects and improve operational reliability.”

All Aveva’s solutions are developed on the principle that for every physical asset there must be a corresponding digital asset.
