Tekla showcases BIM range at Dubai show
Dubai, September 19, 2011
Tekla Middle East, a leader in digital information models, is showcasing its Building Information Modeling (PLM/BIM) solutions at a major oil and gas exhibition in Dubai.
This year’s Arab Oil and Gas Exhibition, which opened yesterday (September 18) in Dubai, will end tomorrow.
Industry decision makers, owners, contractors, engineering companies, fabricators and project managers can witness first-hand the benefit of using Tekla Structures from design to concept of construction, a statement said.
“Tekla offer a centralised information management HUB allowing for more control over the project cycle, helping to drive costs down,” said Paul Wallett, business manager, Tekla Middle East.
“Global and local companies operating in the region’s oil and gas sector are already using Tekla Structural BIM to manage their projects. This exhibition will allow us to reach out to the region’s oil and gas industry and demonstrate to them the many benefits of using Tekla BIM.”
“Tekla will use the platform provided by Arab Oil and Gas Exhibition to help the region’s industry realise the many benefits of implementing PLM/BIM across their projects,” he added.
The Tekla stand will be running live demonstrations of the company’s entire product range, while senior managers will be available to discuss specific customer issues in a one-to-one environment.
“Clearly, the most significant benefit is the availability of a single structural model from which we can extract project plans and detailing, lists of materials, weights and centres of gravity,” said Giuseppe Frigerio, an engineer at Saipem, a global company employing Tekla BIM for its offshore projects.
“The software also allows direct interfacing to the piping model in PDS. The programme was customised to handle our needs related to material management, construction phase management and integration with corporate standards (standard joint macros and customized user attributes and material lists).”
“Another useful function provided by Tekla Structures is simultaneous access by multiple users to the same model,” he added. – TradeArabia News Service
