BMT’s CargoHandbook

Goes Mobile

BMT Surveys launched a new App to provide mobile access to its world-re- nowned CargoHandbook database. The

App is now available as a free download for both Android and iOS users. Car- goHandbook is an online database for cargo transportation in the marine in- dustry. As a rich source of knowledge,

BMT Surveys aims to provide and share information on cargo transportation with the wider market and therefore help to reduce the number of cargo incidents and claims that occur. As well as a basic description and photograph of the cargo product, people can access information on the shipment/storage requirements in- cluding optimum temperature/humidity and moisture and the risk factors associ- ated with the particular product.

AVEVA Laser Modeler

AVEVA said Burgasnefteproekt, an en- gineering company in the fi eld of petro- chemicals, has achieved signifi cant cost savings using AVEVA Laser Modeler.

Burgasnefteproekt recently acquired the

AVEVA software and used it to capture the as-built asset and create a 3D model of an existing fl aring system. This is part of a revamp project to rebuild the system and ensure up-to-date, accurate project documentation. Using 3D laser scan- ning technologies and processing the scan data using AVEVA Laser Modeler and AVEVA PDMS, Burgasnefteproekt achieved approximately 80% savings in design man-hours. The laser scan data captured from the facility was imported into AVEVA Laser Modeler, where the modeling process is driven by the high resolution, photo-realistic BubbleView.

On completion the new model was trans- ferred to AVEVA PDMS.
