Building Design & Construction magazine recently published a case study featuring Acensium’s current work scanning and modeling the retrofit tasks for Plant Bowen’s Unit-4 fuel pipe:
“Plant Bowen, a coal-fired power station owned by Georgia Power Company in Euharlee, Ga., needed to undergo an ambitious demolition and replacement of its Unit-4 fuel pipe. Coal dust, which is the consistency of talcum powder, is blown through the fuel pipe from the pulverizer for ignition. In order to tackle the challenging and inherently dangerous project, Georgia Power called upon Acensium to provide engineering support and take on the piping digitization to support demolition and installation/construction team.”
Industrial retrofit projects benefit from 3D scanning & visualization through reduced risks of costly downtimes and budget overrun. In addition, safety compliance can be ensured by visualizing each project task and phase in 3D.
