ENGIE Fabricom recently carried out a major project to extend an existing steel platform. The platform was to support two new vessels with associated pipework and steelwork.

Due to the congested nature and height of various areas surrounding the proposed project, the decision was made to carry out a 3D laser scan. The scan was carried out in house by members of both our structural and piping teams, to ensure the project was covered from both of the discipline requirements.

Once the scan was completed, models were created and built for each discipline. The structural team use Advance Steel software and the piping team Plant 3D software, both by Autodesk.

The project models were then cross referenced within each other to show a live project.

After full checks were carried out, the models were sent to the client for input and approval, the data was then extracted from the respective models to allow fabrication.
