Foreign engineering companies view the management approach in life cycle logics as part of their ‘best practices’, and the basis of innovation growth. The introduction of life cycle management ensures a higher capacity and economic efficiency of facilities during their operating life, optimises the loading modes and enhances their safety due to prior process modeling and monitoring during the whole period of operation.

Several factors gave an impetus to the development of Multi-D technology, namely the industry requirements and the growth of Rosatom’s Engineering Division NIAEP-ASE. The company provides services such as Nuclear Power Plant (NPP) design, construction and decommissioning in Russia and abroad. The company has 20 NPPs under construction and design across the globe.

Multi-D model technology was developed as a result of clients requesting a comprehensive approach to NPP designs, including not only the organisation and the activities at all the stages of the life cycle, but also a digital model of all the processes and facilities. It was decided to unify all the stages of NPP construction into a single digital model in which all the business-processes would be clearly described. After two years of multi-dimensional work the Multi-D model technology was developed.

 

Take note

  • Multi-D model technology was developed as a result of clients requesting a comprehensive approach to NPP designs.
  • Multi-D technology makes it possible to model in detail the NPP construction and installation processes on the basis of a 3-D model.
  • This allows for the optimisation of numerous aspects of NPP construction at the early stage of preparation for production.
