AVEVA, a leader in engineering design and information management solutions for the plant, power and marine industries, announced the launch of the new AVEVA Laser Modeller solution at SPAR 2011. An integral part of AVEVA’s larger laser scan strategy, AVEVA Laser Modeller rapidly and cost-effectively transforms laser scan data into intelligent, as-built 3D plant models. Creation of an accurate 3D model for existing brownfield facilities allows Owner Operators to optimise the operations of their assets and significantly reduce the lead time on upgrade and revamp projects in a way that is simply not possible with historic applications.

Traditional techniques for converting laser scan data into an intelligent 3D model requires many days of costly modelling services for each hour of scanning time. In most cases, the cost is too high to justify the total investment in 3D. Laser Modeller changes the fundamental ground rules by automating most aspects of the modelling process, producing a fully intelligent 3D model at a fraction of the time and cost of existing techniques.

Laser Modeller can accept scan data from any of the leading laser scanning vendors so users are not locked into a specific hardware supplier. It directly generates 3D models to feed into a visual asset management strategy, and for Brownfield projects using native PDMS component catalogues, delivers a fully intelligent PDMS model. This completely transforms the modelling process by eliminating the unnecessary service intensive steps, dramatically reducing the time and cost of model creation. Mat Truche-Gordon, EVP Business Strategy & Marketing for AVEVA comments, “AVEVA’s Laser Modeller is totally changing the landscape for operators by allowing cost-effective creation of an accurate digital asset from the operating facility. It is a key part of our overall laser scan portfolio and plays a major role in our Operations Integrity Management and Brownfield project strategy. In combination with AVEVA’s Enterprise Solutions, we are creating a powerful, digital as-built plant, where brownfield information is truly evergreen.”

Neil McPhater, Product Marketing Manager for Interoperability at AVEVA will also be hosting a technical seminar at SPAR 2011 titled ‘Dramatic improvements in process plant engineering using AVEVA’s Laser Scan solutions’. The seminar takes place on Wednesday 23 March from 11.30 to 12.30.

Attendees can see AVEVA's Laser technology demonstrations by visiting booth #21. SPAR 2011 takes place between March 21 – 24 at the Waterway Marriott Hotel & Convention Center, The Woodlands near Houston, TX.
