The project to build a greenfield potash mine in Saskatchewan required a significant workforce, with 11 different EPC firms working simultaneously on different aspects of the construction. The challenge to ensure a smooth handover from the EPC firms to the construction site and then the owner-operator was met by AVEVA, delivering fast access to real-time information and seamless change management.
“AVEVA Engineering is an extremely versatile tool, especially for organizing and querying data and compiling useful reports - a simple query function identifies the information I need, and reports take me just 20 minutes.”
