The Siemens Industry Automation in Nigeria, one of the major players in the energy sector has completed Comos software solution for plant management throughout the entire lifecycle of an industrial plant.
The company said in a statement issued in Lagos and made available to Sweetcrude that it has imported new Comos software solution for Front-End Engineering and Design, FEED, “to simulate programmes and support the users to speed up industrial plant planning and make it more reliable.”
The Product Manager, Comos, Mr. Marcus Elo, said, “With the new FEED, plant designers can work more quick and flexible and also improve the quality of their work.
Elo, noted that the Comos software solution is a modular and its integrated data management allows effective, holistic development in a system over the entire lifecycle.
He also said that the data was both consistent and transparent in all planning phases which applied to the early stages of plant design and ensured high quality in the design of the process.
He added that the integrated data and document revision in the mechanisms provided by the Comos FEED software module allow a controlled and efficient design procedure.
“Even at the very early planning stage of an industrial plant project, some 80 percent of the total costs are defined in the FEED phase,” he said.
The data from seven process simulators can be imported and further processed. This underlines the open system architecture of Comos and provides users with even greater flexible and further processing for flowcharts and block diagrams in Comos software.
