Bureau Veritas introduces its new “digital cloning” services for industry and transportation, with partner Bentley Systems during the “Year in Infrastructure 2017” Conference, from October 10 to 12, 2017, in Singapore.

Paris-La Défense, France - October 6, 2017 

At the next “Year in Infrastructure 2017” Conference, Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC), and Bentley Systems, a global provider of software solutions for sustainable infrastructure projects, will present the latest developments of their cloud services for asset modeling and management.

These new services, resulting from a partnership initiated about one year ago, consist in Bentley Systems’ data modeling technology provisioning Bureau Veritas’ new digital services for transport or industrial infrastructure owners in need of expert know-how.

Philippe Donche-Gay, Deputy CEO at Bureau Veritas, said: “In the context of ageing infrastructure assets in the developed world, inspections play a critical role in ensuring safety, extending the life of the asset, and increasing its performance. Bureau Veritas has always sought to leverage the best technology to improve the quality and scope of its offerings. By working with Bentley Systems, we can offer our clients around the world cutting-edge technology for smarter inspections based on asset modeling.”

Greg Bentley, CEO of Bentley Systems, added: “Advancing both cloud services and related inspections opens up great perspectives for our users and clients. By leveraging digital engineering models in their continuously surveyed context, we can achieve asset performance modeling and provide decision support to improve the safety, and increase the productivity, reliability, and longevity of those assets. We and Bureau Veritas believe that our work together will be a significant contribution to engineers and asset owners, in going digital.”

Digital cloning: a new concept of 3D asset register

For the first time, TIC and engineering services capitalize on BIM innovations in terms of continuous surveying and context modeling. The software leverages the Internet of Things, connected mobile devices, and cloud services to produce a hybrid digital model that can be used as a frame of reference for an intelligent analysis of inspection data as well as for compliance evaluation.

This technological breakthrough, which enables inspection services to be timelier when it comes to the safety and performance of infrastructure assets, is what Bentley Systems refers to as “reality modeling”. This technology uses imagery to capture the context of as-operated asset conditions, thanks to virtually continuous surveying.

In the future, Bureau Veritas’ “digital inspectors” will be equipped with sensors, smart cameras, and drones. Through reality modeling, reality meshes representing continuously surveyed conditions can be accumulatively compared, and cloud services can make the field observations immediately and immersively accessible to the right Bureau Veritas experts, at any time and place. The model is ready to be used by engineers for evaluation, diagnosis, and remediation of risks.

The Year in Infrastructure 2017 – Bureau Veritas talks on October 12, 2017

The conference, organized by Bentley Systems, will be an opportunity for Bureau Veritas to detail these new services through the following presentations:

The Future of Inspectioneering

Speaker: Thomas Daubigny, Chief Digital Officer, Bureau Veritas

Inspection services are transformed by combining cutting-edge technologies: IOT, robotics (including drones), predictive analytics, and digital modeling. These technologies enable inspections based on anticipated risk, rather than time intervals that provide benefits for all the stakeholders working on the asset. In fact, the technologies help avoid unplanned asset downtime, improve safety and compliance, while delivering new and valuable insights to increase operational efficiency. This session will describe how Bureau Veritas, with the support of Bentley applications, provides a new type of "inspectioneering" that crosses inspection data with regulatory and external data sources to identify defects and recommend optimal inspection and maintenance schedules.

Technology Strategic to Achieving Cost Effective Mechanical Integrity and Reliability at Hindustan Petroleum Corporation, Ltd. (HPCL)

Speaker: Karine Kutrowski, Director, Industries and Facilities, Bureau Veritas

Protecting the health and safety of citizens, as well as the environment, is a critical concern to any project team. Often, achieving these priorities begins with reducing technical failure risk. In this session, Bureau Veritas will explain how, by partnering with Bentley, it has established a new model that combines high service reliability and integrity management with operational efficiency and effectiveness, for Hindustan Petroleum Corporation, Ltd (HPCL).
