Project execution solutions improve collaboration on Malaysian refinery01 June 2015

Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) mega project

Two innovative design tools are to be utilised to deliver a large-scale steam cracker complex in Malaysia.

Toyo Engineering Corporation (Toyo) has announced the purchase of two Intergraph solutions, Smart 3D and SmartPlant Materials.The project is part of the Refinery and Petrochemicals Integrated Development (RAPID) mega project. When completed, RAPID will consist of a 300,000-barrels-per-day refinery and petrochemical complex with a combined capacity of producing 7.7 million tons per annum of various grades of products, including differentiated and specialty chemicals products such as synthetic rubbers and high-grade polymers. Given the size and complexity of the project, Toyo made the decision to purchase and implement two project execution tools.

The first was Intergraph Smart 3D, a 3D design solution specifically tailored for the plant industry. It employs an engineering approach that leverages real-time concurrent design, rules, relationships and automation. It effectively enables optimised design, increasing safety, quality and productivity, while shortening project schedules.

Toyo also selected SmartPlant Materials that supports the materials management processes needed in the chemical industry. It offers a total materials management and subcontract management solution for chemical plants and projects.

"We made the decision to increase the number of licenses for Smart 3D and SmartPlant Materials, as both have innovative features that support global work sharing arrangements," Toshio Hayashi, director of Toyo's IT and management control division, said. "These tools will help us to achieve its vision of becoming a globally networked organisation in which our group companies around the world collaborate with each other and carry out work for any client worldwide in the most efficient manner, based on common work standards."
