The Russian state nuclear company NIAEP-ASE and Intergraph® have successfully executed facility laser scanning and 3D model data capture with SmartPlant® Fusion during construction of the Rostov NPP plant. The project required accurate digital as-built information about the facility, which was missing from the original construction and design documentation.
SmartPlant Fusion enabled NIAEP-ASE to quickly create an as-built model of the facility, by integrating photorealistic Leica laser scan data, SmartPlant 3D models, and scanned paper documentation. The SmartPlant Fusion portal now provides a comprehensive view of all technical asset information for nuclear power plant operations and maintenance personnel to use as a master system for subsequent mechanical and operations work.
Due to the success of this project, the technology is now considered for all future projects by NIAEP-ASE. The company will now be able to build plants in a more efficient and safe manner by having all plant 3D models and engineering data integrated in a single platform and accessed through a simple photorealistic portal.
