Bentley Releases OpenPlant V8i (SELECTseries 5)

Endorsements of OpenPlant by Industry-leading User Organizations

“The flexibility and openness of OpenPlant have enabled us to develop a common platform for our water projects – both large and small. It allows us to leverage our existing systems, processes, and resources without loss of productivity or data. By using OpenPlant, we can deliver client requirements for open BIM data models using both ISO 15926 and IFCs. Also, through the comprehensive i-models that OpenPlant delivers, we can share information with our construction partners, significantly reducing risks of overruns.” – Bruce Strupp, ATL CPE-Design Technology Director, CH2M HILL

“Santiago Engenharia is a mid-sized EPC, and we’ve been working with Bentley software since 2004. Last year, we made the decision to migrate from PlantSpace to OpenPlant and ProjectWise to take advantage of leading-edge information mobility solutions such as i-models. The move to OpenPlant has increased our engineering productivity and cut in half the time it took to create isometrics and other deliverables. In addition, being able to better communicate with owner-operators and visualize project status via ProjectWise has improved our ability to manage projects and client relations.” – José Salisberto de S. Carvalho, President, Santiago Engenharia

OpenPlant and the i-model framework enable us to exchange data with partners that use Bentley solutions or other plant design solutions. OpenPlant is a modern, open solution with bigger possibilities in the future. We can do our jobs better with this system than we can with other plant design systems.” – Zbigniew Harezlak, Engineering Manager, Rafako S.A.

“By increasing the interoperability of our fully integrated 2D engineering software solution Comos with Bentley’s open 3D system OpenPlant, we will be generating exciting new potential for users, based on the global standard ISO 15926 and iRING. This will benefit EPC (engineering, procurement, and construction) service providers as well as owner-operators.” – Andreas Geiss, Vice President of Comos Industry Solutions, Siemens (in a press release issued Monday announcing that Siemens and Bentley have extended their collaboration to the process industry)

“The interoperability provided through OpenPlant with its MicroStation foundation and the ISO 15926 open data model enables us to both protect our investment and reuse our design models, all while achieving greater productivity across our disciplines and project phases.” – Dr. Oliver Hoffman, Application Compliance Manager, Siemens Energy
