Deliver reliable power worldwide with Aconex

Expanding populations and economic growth are fuelling an era of innovation in electric power generation and distribution. Around the world, older coal-fired plants are being decommissioned or refurbished and new gas-fired or renewables plants are coming online. To manage risk and ensure project success, utilities, EPCs and other developers/operators are increasingly adopting cloud platforms like Aconex.

Take control of your projects

Manage information and processes across every organization on the project. Ensure everyone has access to accurate, up-to-date documents, models and drawings no matter where they are working from.

Standardize processes

Minimize errors and ensure consistency with project-wide workflows. Use powerful reporting and insights features to spot bottlenecks and prevent delays.

Made for megaprojects and large programs

While projects of all sizes and structures have benefited from Aconex, the platform is especially suited for large, complex projects: there are no limits on data, file size, the number of files or the number of users.

Front-end engineering and design

Track all process and engineering documentation with automatic version control so that everyone is always working from the most current information.

Permitting and licensing

Whether obtaining a construction and operating license from a nuclear regulator or securing a greenhouse gas permit from a national environmental agency, you can streamline the licensing and permitting process by organizing all documents and correspondence on Aconex.

Bidding and tendering

Assemble and distribute packages of digital documents with just a few clicks. Aconex facilitates oversight by authorized evaluators, helping ensure a fair, transparent bidding process with lockbox functionality available when required.

Environmental and safety compliance

Meet complex compliance requirements by working from one centralized information repository. Prepare plans, reports, regulatory submissions, permit applications and supporting documentation and send transmittals through Aconex.

Manage a project for years—and decades—to come

Commissioning

From confirming the design intent of component systems to optimizing plant system functions, members of a commissioning team often get more done by working on-site. That’s where award-winning Aconex mobile apps come in.

Handover

Even turnkey power plant projects sometimes end up with difficult handovers. With Aconex, digital as-built documentation is compiled into O&M manuals as the project progresses, thus ensuring information about the asset is always available for review and update.

Operation & maintenance

Immediately pull up the complete project record for transmission lines and project assets instead of taking months to assemble documents lost in an off-site file store. Address issues and launch repair efforts immediately.

Decommissioning

Closing down antiquated and economically marginal plants requires extensive planning. Having a single source of project information allows participants to more efficiently address complications as they arise.
