AsBuilt for Valve Replacement

The Challenge:

AsBuilt was contracted to capture the as-is conditions of a piping system in a hydro power plant.  The plant operation required a new valve placement in an existing piping system.  The plant lacked up to date and correct drawings for the project execution.

The Solution:

AsBuilt captured the existing piping system and developed a point cloud.  The point cloud data was converted to 3D solid modeling for design backgrounds.  

Quick Facts:

Shared Access – Upon completion of scanning and processing the data was easily shared with the mechanical design team for the correct placement of the new valve.

Project Planning – Once the new valve was placed in the 3D model the plant operations and maintenance team were able to review the layout and approve the design.

Reduced Rework – Visualizing the equipment in various arrangements allowed the team to finalize a design.  Once designed the fabrication drawings were created from the 3D model.

Installation Planning – Once the equipment was determined to be in the most efficient arrangement, the installation crew were able to plan the installation, scaffolding, and rigging planning.
