In just four years, Advanced 3D Laser Solutions has quickly established itself with a strong client base in the UK and Europe. After Establishing a strong client base in the UK, the team set its sights on Europe, particularly  in the Netherlands, as its offered new opportunities  to  expand the company’s offering.  

RENEWABLE ENERGY

Effective management of all Assets is a fundamental part of the business and a key area for continuous improvement. This enables you to move away from reactive to more proactive and productive maintenance, with cost-saving benefits fewer visits reducing risk to personnel, and improved uptime during the life of Equipment. Moving from reactive maintenance to best practices takes time, a complete cultural shift and a talented team is the key to success. Asset Management Software  4D Lizard can import or build a defined equipment Hierarchy it can Export to other CMMS systems such as Maximo / SAP / Coswin etc.

4D Lizard can actively monitor PM and CM work orders, inspections, and repairs.  you can run reports and define your own fault reporting format to generate snag lists and corrective work orders. Additional to the CMMS there is a 3D model as an interface, which can assign values to assets enabling cost reporting forecasting and analysis. The following processes below would be used to build a Generic Maintenance Model initially on the  BOP (Balance of plant)  and Substations which could be used across all like assets using owners variance information.

THE PROCESSES

Define asset structure granularity with O&M teams to define critical components  Maintenance Boundaries. PMs, Inspections, statutory, warranties etc.

CRITICAL EQUIPMENT

By Option to define and select Critical equipment (RCM/FMECA )

MAINTENANCE

Define maintenance and spares (BOMs) strategies including stores and preservation maintenance.

IMPLEMENTATION

Develop and implement in-house maintenance plans, tasks, and strategies for scheduling.

STRATEGY

Develop repair and replace strategies for breakdown/correctives

TEMPLATE

Develop a standard wind turbine template including the balance of plant to the RDS PP T32 Wind denomination coding

CLIENT CONTROL

With our 4D Lizard cloud application, clients are able to login and get a complete picture of design progress, with the ability to comment and upload / download required documentation.

GAINS

Once a maintenance system is well established the results from history records would be used for trending enabling decisions on continual improvement plans / modifications / retrofits / Risk based inspections and could be used to make future projects cost effective.

PRE-pLANNING 

A3D will complete pre-planning in order to determine the most efficient and therefore, cost effective solution.

RISK & METHOD STATEMENTS 

A3D recognise that any form of site work on an operating site must be subject of both RAMS along with planning documents in order to expedite an efficient and safe survey.

3D LASER SCAN 

Recognised as the referred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming  and subject to error.

REGISTER SCAN DATA  

Once A3D has been out on site with the 3D Laser Scanners we then process the scan using faro scene software.

AUTO PIPEWORK RECOGNITION 

A3D uses pipework recognition software to pick out the pipework from the point cloud data this save valuable time modelling.

STEEL WORK EXTRAPOLATION 

A3D can provide steel work models this can aid clients in the situation where they need  feed a new line through the site. A3D offer clash detection services.

ADD PIPING COMPONENTS

Auto Cad Plant 3D has a catalogue of spec driven components which replicate onsite assets which can be given individual numbers which correspond with asset management systems.

ADD LINE NUMBERS

A3D uses the clients specific nomenclature which allows us to produce 2D deliverables  such as orthos and isos which tie into existing management systems.

EXPORT FABRICATION ISOS

The 3D models we produce have a list of outputs, including fabrication isos, Bill of Materials, Cut Piece and Weld lists. Also PCF files which can later be used for stress analysis.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do we require specialised software, to use the models?
Our models for digitising terminals are created in Autodesk Plant 3D, chances are if you already have an AutoCAD licence, you will have access to the same software package.
Will we have access to the scan data?
A3D give our clients full access to the point cloud data, including webshare access.
Do you have Case Studies for Design work?
Speak to our commercial department who will be able to send over case studies and testimonials
What will happen to the model after the project is finished?
All files are sent over to the client after completion and archived for a year, which afterwards will be deleted, unless stated otherwise.
Can you model in Pipe Supports?
Absolutely, we have access to a huge range of different pipe supports, which can help aid NDT API570 inspection and help with pipe stress analysis.
How do you model in valves?
All our piping components flanges, valves, elbows, tees etc are all brought in via a piping standard catalogue, for instance for a lot of our UK clients we use an ASME catalogue.
How do you know what spec your modelling too?
We use multiple methods, for instance using P&IDs, pictures from the scan data and when those aren’t available we work with the clients engineering team.
Can the models export Bill of Materials?
Yes as long as the Spec components are created correctly; because of the package we use, when a flange valve is modelled in, the gasket and bolt set are all accounted for, so they can be accounted for in dimensions and BOM.
Can the models be used for asset management?
Absolutely ! we can set your models up to store detailed information about the individual assets, including serial number, service, status, design pressure and more.
Does A3D supply stress analysis?
This is not a service we currently supply but we do have contacts that can work with our files

A3D are proud to have established point cloud technologies, now recognised as the preferred method for accurately capturing measured site data in using 3D laser scanning instruments. Traditional methods being time consuming and subject to error

P&ID DRAWINGS 

Piping and instrumentation diagrams (P&IDs) are considered a fundamental requirement for companies operating a process operation. P&IDs play a significant role in the maintenance and modification of the process that it describes and should be maintained

TANK ANALYSIS 

The A3D Tank analysis reports deliver critical information with a level of detail not previously achieved using traditional methods. since we are using advanced 3d laser scanners with out need for temporary access platforms, thus technology is a market leading competitively priced alternative..
