The Nagaa Hammadi Elsenaia project will stretch across 250,000 square meters and include three buildings that provide 500 kilovolts, 220 kilovolts, and 66 kilovolts of energy, respectively, to the surrounding cities and urban areas. PGESCo was tasked with designing the entire plant systems. They also had to manage the project’s construction, start-up, and commissioning. They needed a system that would help them manage project data and enable collaboration to deliver the project on time and budget.
Already familiar with Bentley applications, PGESCo chose MicroStation to draw, edit, and issue all CAD drawings. ProjectWise helped them manage, share, and search for 642 documents, including 331 correspondences and 298 drawings, within a single platform to streamline design and approval. With STAAD, they designed foundations, concrete buildings, and steel members in a safe and economical way, saving over 50% in analysis time and providing an easy-to-use 3D interface.
