Nortech was selected to engineer and design a new plant for Jersey Gas company, a liquefied petro gas importer owned by International Energy Group. The new plant was required to operate on demand and cover seasonal differences in energy demand, allowing the existing gas holder to be withdrawn out of service and the associated land to be sold for further development.
Nortech chose CADWorx Plant Professional and Autodesk Navisworks for their familiarity and AutoCAD-based 3D design capabilities. The 3D design began with the creation of piping specifications along with existing, modified, and new piping catalogs. The piping modeling commenced after the creation of the specifications.
CADWorx Plant Professional was also used for the structural, civil, and mechanical design. After this, all the isometric drawings were produced with Isogen, enabling automated isometric creation tailored to Nortech’s needs. Piping support details and generic 3D design were also created. Plus, the 3D design was transferred into a fully dimensional 2D format for fabrication purposes.
