Abstract

Process plant deliveries consist nowadays of two plant components – a ‘real’ plant and a ‘virtual’ plant. The real plant is the actual nuts and bolts delivery, while the virtual plant comprises all of the digital material handed over to the customer. However, a lack of proper standards and harmonized procedures regarding the content and delivery of virtual plants poses a number of challenges for system integrators (EPC contractors) – to the extent, in fact, that virtual delivery may be more challenging than the actual plant delivery itself.
