China Nuclear Power Engineering Co., Ltd. (CNPE) has selected Teamcenter® software from Siemens’ product lifecycle management (PLM) software business to enhance efficiency in nuclear power plant design. CNPE will use Teamcenter to build a uniform and integrated engineering information management system that will serve as the definitive single source of digitalized design data for users across all disciplines, regions and departments. The Teamcenter system will enhance design management efficiency by facilitating instant access to accurate and current information across the CNPE enterprise, providing support for equipment purchasing, engineering installation and system debugging. By laying a solid foundation for delivering digital nuclear power plants, CNPE is setting a strong example in its industry for efficient product development.
“The development of nuclear power engineering construction demands advanced digital methods and technological innovation,” said Mr. Gao Fuchun, officer of Information File in China Nuclear Power Engineering. “Siemens has the required knowledge and expertise, along with the advanced innovative technologies to properly address this critical need. Our partnership will facilitate the upgrading and transforming of the nuclear power engineering construction industry, as well as the integration of information and industrialization.”
With the rapid development of China’s nuclear power industry, designing and constructing safe nuclear power plants in a cost-effective manner is becoming a critical challenge for the nuclear power construction industry. As an industry leader, CNPE will transform its traditional design management model into a digitalized engineering information management system. This will enable cross-disciplinary collaborative design and information management for the equipment, system, and plant. CNPE selected Teamcenter, the world’s most widely used PLM system, to serve as the collaboration platform and data backbone of this new system.
“We are extremely honored to be partnered with CNPE in driving the digitalization of China’s nuclear power engineering construction industry,” said Leo Liang, Vice President and Managing Director, Greater China at Siemens PLM Software. “Their leadership, combined with our strong capability and comprehensive PLM solutions will help them better manage their design efficiency and achieve their digitalization goal, while serving as a great example for others in their industry.”
