AVEVA and EDF in multi-year transformation deal

AVEVA

Mumbai, India: Industrial software company AVEVA has signed a long-term partnership with EDF, the world leader in power generation.

Under this tie-up, AVEVA will help drive EDF’s SWITCH digital transformation program using its AVEVA E3D Design solution and other components of the AVEVA Unified Engineering solution.

EDF will strengthen its engineering design portfolio by way of faster design and delivery of its nuclear plants as well as advanced safety and performance standards.

Leveraging AVEVA technology, EDF will be able to streamline data from different design disciplines including mechanical, electrical and civil works. This will allow several hundred users across different global locations to work together within a digital twin repository,

The streamlining of data will eliminate siloed engineering design approaches, data inconsistencies and duplication. AVEVA technology will enable users to collaborate on shared 3D models simultaneously, thus improving the competitiveness of EDF’s nuclear engineering design processes.

This new strategic multi-year partnership is an extension of the long-standing relationship between AVEVA and EDF. AVEVA has supported EDF with 3D digital engineering solutions at its N4 nuclear plants since the 1980s.

To date, AVEVA’s capabilities have enabled EDF to drive its sustainable nuclear vision by reducing operational work-hours and by enhancing data consistency.

The technology deployment will help EDF to save time in design and engineering works, decrease in re-work due to consistently accurate and high-quality deliverables.

Also, there will be a faster development rate of 3D models, better project visibility for all project stakeholders. broader collaboration between design and engineering teams. In addition to extended asset lifespans and the ability to reduce CO₂ emissions.

The new agreement will see AVEVA digital design systems implemented as the gold standard for all new EDF nuclear projects.

“The SWITCH digital transformation program is critical to reinforce EDF’s ambition of producing low-carbon electricity and achieving our carbon neutrality objective by 2050 across our portfolio,” said Xavier Ursat, EDF Group Executive Director – Engineering and New Nuclear Project

“The SWITCH digital transformation program is critical to reinforce EDF’s ambition of producing low-carbon electricity and achieving our carbon neutrality objective by 2050 across our portfolio,” added Ursat.

Further, “AVEVA has been a trusted partner for EDF for more than 30 years, helping us to accomplish our digital transformation,” commented Ursat.

About the deal, Ursat pointed out, “This extended long-term partnership supports our engineering design and operations teams and empowers them to optimize operational performance and to exploit nuclear energy efficiently.” t.

“We are proud to have built a trusted partnership with EDF that serves as the foundation stone of its digital transformation vision and sustainability program. Our market-leading digital engineering design enables us to support EDF in driving their net-zero energy strategy for the benefit of end consumers throughout the world,” said Peter Herweek, CEO AVEVA.

“With our new agreement, AVEVA will help EDF accelerate engineering collaboration, connect teams and unlock higher performance through shared contextual data and intelligence. We look forward to assisting EDF’s expert engineers to cut design time, improve collaboration and accelerate efficient decision-making to develop the nuclear industry of the future,” added Herweek.
