Digital Project Delivery for the Aluminium Reduction Lines – A New Way to Achieve Construction Efficiency
Wednesday 2nd December 15:45 - 16:30
While aluminium reduction lines have increased significantly in efficiency over the years, the design approach and construction strategy have evolved at a slower pace given various factors including: the low number of projects executed, high risk in mismanaging key data and format of technology packages provided by key industry suppliers.
Using the traditional approach, data sharing during the project delivery stages were partial with limited flow of information between technology supplier, detailed engineering, procurement, construction, commissioning and ultimately operations.
Hatch has partnered with one of its key clients for the extension of potlines in an existing smelter deploying modern engineering tools allowing global data management into a multiple discipline environment including novel features such as the use of virtual reality (VR) in design reviews with both operators and constructors to enable safer and quicker execution
Considering the latest technology development, digital tools enable now greater project delivery accuracy and therefore reduced risk and cost. Such methods deployed over large-scale projects, could significantly improve delivery schedule and project cost.
