KBR announced that its joint venture with SOCAR, who is undertaking the engineering design phase of the Azeri Central East (ACE) platform, is now nearing completion. The ACE platform is the first of its kind to be designed through all phases, from concept to front-end engineering design and detailed design, to fully use KBR’s digital twin technology. The benefits of the digital twin continue to be used as the ACE platform moves into fabrication and commissioning, which is being undertaken in Azerbaijan. Digital twin technology creates a platform for all involved in the process to access all project information from anywhere in the world through all phases. The technology allows users to view procurement status and materials availability.
