Bentley Systems won Downstream Award for Digitalization
19 December 2019
Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the provider of comprehensive software and digital twin cloud services for advancing the design, construction, and operations of infrastructure, and Digital Construction Works (DCW), a Bentley Systems and Topcon Positioning Group joint venture providing digital automation, integration, and “twinning” services, around fit-for-purpose software and cloud services, announced that Bentley Systems was named a winner at the Downstream Awards. Bentley won in the Innovation in Downstream Digitalization category for Dow Chemical Company’s (Dow) use of its ConstructSim application.
The awards celebrate the best of the downstream industry and are organized by Petrochemical Update, a division of Reuters Events.
The implementation of AWP methods with ConstructSim helped Dow achieve amazing tool time results for piping and structural steel. Structural steel wrench time performance improved to 70% and piping wrench time performance rose to 63%, while the industry average wrench time is 37%. Other non-quantifiable benefits were the transparency of construction progress, as Dow was able to use the ConstructSim model in weekly construction status meetings.
