Some large and small projects using Eikon Documents.

CCBM: Belo Monte hydroelectric power plant

Belo Monte hydroelectric power plant

CCBM is a consortium of large engineering companies building the UHE Belo Monte at Altamira, state of Pará, Brazil. Third largest hydroelectric plant in the world, UHE Belo Monte construction project is budgeted at $11 billion for an installed capacity of 11,000 MW.

CCBM is using Eikon Documents to control all technical documentation: more than 10,000 documents comprising over 50,000 files have already been issued by design engineers and commented / approved by the construction engineers. Eikon Documents enables the complex ecosystem of hundreds of collaborators, in world-wide locations, and supports the 25,000 on-going construction team.

PARSONS CT MAIN: rocket launching base

Alcântara Cyclone Space Launching Rocket Base

Eikon Documents was used by PARSONS CT MAIN in the detailed design of the Cyclone 4 rocket launch base, a Brazil-Ukraine joint project located at Alcântara, state of Maranhão, Brazil.

Over 16,500 documents of the various design disciplines were managed in a life cycle that resulted in more than 112,500 files safely stored on the cloud and accessible under strict permission rules.

Project members in several locations in Brazil and Ukraine accessed the system from their browsers, creating, commenting and approving documents in Russian, English and Portuguese versions, in a 24-hour basis, 7 days a week.

SINOPEC: Gas pipeline Cacimbas-Catu - GASCAC

GASCAC Gas Pipeline

PETROBRAS hired SINOPEC to build GASCAC, a 974 km long 28” gas pipeline, longest stretch of GASENE , a pipeline network connecting Brazil´s Southeast to Northeast.

In 2008, with the project in full swing, the document interchange and approval cycle between owner and contractor engineering teams was a challenge to project managers. Errors in document workflows were hurting productivity and putting the contract at risk: only 9% of physical progress was recognized by PETROBRAS with 30% of scheduled time spent.

Eikon Documents was deployed in less than 6 weeks, including a custom internet integration with PETROBRAS Project Management System – SIGEM, automating the document workflow between the companies. Progress reports were also automated and made available online, such as the Physical Advance Monthly Report, whose preparation used to take up to 30 days.

Construtora Andrade Gutierrez

Construtora Andrade Gutierrez - AG is the second largest construction company in Brazil. Almost 40% of its revenues come from international endeavours, and is currently involved in large projects all over South America and Africa.

AG uses Eikon Documents in corporate environment and specific projects. In corporate area, Eikon Documents is used for collaboration and document control in studies, preliminary designs, basic designs and technical proposals for major infrastructure developments in Brazil and abroad.

In specific projects, AG uses Eikon Documents to facilitate document-based collaboration between designers, service providers, materials and equipment suppliers, consortium members and the end customer.

GDK-SINOPEC: Iron ore pipeline

Samarco Iron Ore Pipeline

The Consortium GDK-SINOPEC was hired by Samarco to build a 400 km long iron ore pipeline between the Brazilian states of Minas Gerais and Espírito Santo. The pipeline is major part of the Fourth Pellet Project (P4P), a mining expansion plan started in May 2011.

Eikon Documents was used to handle all document flow between the teams over the detailed design and construction phases

Monorail-Integration Consortium: Gold Line São Paulo Monorail

Gold Line São Paulo Monorail

The Monorail-Integration Consortium is building the monorail line connecting São Paulo Congonhas Airport to the city Metro system. Eikon Documents is used to control all systems and civil engineering detailed design project documentation.

PARSONS CT MAIN: ethanol pipeline pumping stations

Ethanol pipeline pumping station

PARSONS CT MAIN used Eikon Documents in the engineering design of ethanol pumping stations of Uberaba and Ribeirão Preto, in the states of Minas Gerais and São Paulo, Brazil. The stations are part of LOGUM , a 1300 km long pipeline system (estimated cost $2 bi), world’s largest multi-modal logistics system for ethanol transportation and storage.

PARSONS CT MAIN: São Borja Rice Husk Thermal Plant

São Borja Rice Husk Thermal Plant

PARSONS CT MAIN used Eikon Documents in all design phases of the first investment of the German group Münchmeyer Petersen in renewable energy in Brazil.

The thermal plant generates 12.3 MW , enough to supply a city with 80,000 inhabitants, burning 96,000 tons / year of rice husk.
