BIM for FM on Power Plant

One of the largest hydroelectric power stations in Latin America has just selected ENGworks together with the University of Misiones to implement the YouBIM software on their entire plant.

The dam is about 2,600 ft. (800 m2) long, and its installed equipment has maximum power output of 3,100 megawatts (4,200,000 hp), with a record maximum annual power output of 20.000 TWh.

This giant hydroelectric plant was constructed during the 80s and started to be operational mid 90s.

With more than 35,000 maintainable assets on the project, YouBIM will be integrated with IBM Maximo, which is the current CMMS system utilized for maintenance.

First, a REVIT As-Built model will be created. The modeling effort will be developed to focus on facility maintenance purposes. Currently relevant data is partly in IBM Maximo and partly dispersed thus it will need to be collected and organized.

After a successful pilot YouBIM implementation performed last year on one of their maneuver stations, the facility operators are very excited to implement this BIM for FM solution on the entire plant. They believe it will give them quick access to their asset data and location. This will improve the efficiency of their maintenance department by reducing equipment failures that cause emergency repairs. Ultimately, this will lead to longer equipment lives by providing better preventive maintenance and less equipment replacement.

About ENGworks

For more than two decades, ENGworks has continuously developed new processes, tools and services for architects, engineers, contractors, trade contractors, construction managers, manufacturers, as well as owners and operators. Today, ENGworks is an internationally recognized Building Information Modeling (BIM) service and solutions provider with more than 1000 BIM projects completed.

Our goal is to help our clients design and build better projects by saving construction costs and time through implementing the full potential of BIM; we have taken cutting edge technology, sharpened it, and then applied it to everything we know about BIM technology and the AECO Industry.

Our areas of expertise include BIM processes and standards throughout the life cycle of projects: From BIM implementation and training, to BIM content creation, to BIM modeling in multiple platforms (Revit, Bentley, CADmep+, and many others), to BIM coordination, fabrication and shop drawings, to 4D construction scheduling, and through to facilities management.
