AVEVA and ETAP Sign Agreement to Deliver Industry First for Electrical Engineers

Press release date: July 15, 2014

CAMBRIDGE, England -

AVEVA and ETAP's collaboration provides the first single round-tripping environment for complete data validation including 3D visualisation

AVEVA and ETAP have signed a partnership agreement under which both companies will jointly develop a interface between AVEVA Electrical and ETAP's enterprise solution for electrical power systems. The new interface will provide for the first time electrical engineers with a single round-tripping environment for complete data validation from design and network validation to 3D visualisation. The interface will deliver capabilities for efficient design, development and production for the most complex electrical installations in all types of process and power plants, ships and offshore facilities.

The collaboration means that engineers will be able to introduce an iterative approach to electrical data changes. They can now seamlessly round-trip data between AVEVA Electrical and ETAP as many times as necessary and can use shared data to visualise and perform accurate cable routing in AVEVA Everything3D through an unbroken workflow.

"Last month customers from around the world gathered to test a pre-release version of the new software interface," said Shervin Shokooh, Chief Operating Officer, ETAP. "The response was overwhelmingly positive. The interface is helping engineers and designers to repeatedly check the validity of electrical engineering plant design and ensure compliance with relevant industry standards."

"We have been working with ETAP for many years so it is very rewarding to formalise our partnership with such an important project," said Dave Wheeldon, Chief Technology Officer, AVEVA. "The interface, which can be easily and quickly introduced at any stage of a project, offers a unique opportunity for electrical engineers to take designs from Front-End Engineering Design (FEED) to detailed design and construction and all the way to operations. The benefits are not just realised during design, it allows electrical validation to continue throughout the life cycle of plant."

AVEVA Electrical is feature-rich software for electrical engineering and design in plant and marine projects. Its advanced graphical user interfaces, advanced cable routing capabilities, use of design rules and catalogues for data creation offer maximum workflow flexibility, improving project productivity and design quality. AVEVA Electrical is also part of AVEVA's Integrated Engineering and Design solution that includes AVEVA Everything3D (AVEVA E3D), which lhandles routing and cable segregation in the 3D mode. Via a two-way interface, this seamlessly integrates 3D model to create accurate design information.

ETAP is the global market and technology leader in electrical power system modeling, design, analysis, optimization, and predictive real-time solutions. The Company's software technologies ensure that power systems are designed for optimal reliability, safety, and energy efficiency; when deployed in real-time mode, they enable organizations to manage energy as a strategic asset, maximize system utilization, lower costs, and achieve higher levels of financial stability.
