Downer and RIB Software to collaborate on Wheatstone LNG
Downer EDI Limited (Downer) will implement the RIB iTWOcx Cloud Project Document Management, Collaboration and Governance Platform to deliver a trustworthy and auditable project management system for their downstream portion of the Chevron-operated Wheatstone Project in Western Australia.
The contract, valued at approximately A$400 million, will commence onsite late 2014.
Downer will deploy the iTWOcx Core, iTWOcx Quality, iTWOcx Contract Management and iTWOcx Defects modules for Wheatstone. The project will be run out of Downer’s Perth office and will provide project capability for a variety of construction trades, mainly electrical and instrumentation. There will also be a number of new project administration and functional support roles located in Downer’s Perth office.
More broadly, Downer have made a strategic decision to use iTWOcx as the strategic platform for Contractual Documentation, Quality Management and Conformance, Contract and Variation Management and Defect Management across their diverse project portfolio.
Downer are also studying the iTWO End-To-End Digital Engineering and Infrastructure Platform with a view to proving the benefits of adopting the RIB New Project Thinking and New Working Method.
