Used worldwide by leading firms for the power generation and industrial process facilities, Tekla Structures enables an integrated structural design and detailing process that drives reduced project delivery times with improved quality for significant cost savings on projects of any size, regardless of complexity.
The highly detailed structural models created in Tekla Structures enable the highest level of constructability and production control. Centralising model and non-model based data into the model allows for more collaborative and integrated project management and delivery. This translates into increased productivity, elimination of waste, and an enhanced value for structural modelling.
Structural ModellingModelling with Tekla Structures is the most advanced and integrated way to detail and fabricate all steel structures, such as commercial buildings, industrial plants, sports stadiums, Commercial Structures, Pre-engineered Buildings, Bridges, offshore platforms and jackets, including miscella neous steel work.
Integration With Major Plant Design PackagesTekla models can be shared with the major plant design systems, such as PDS, PDMS, SmartPlant 3D, during the FEED, detailed design phases, continue downstream for the creation of steel fabrication deliverables as well as concrete/rebar detailing.
Engineering DeliverablesAll required drawings and reports can be automatically generated from the accurately detailed 3D model. Drawings are associated to the model, so any changes made to the model automatically reflect in the output.
Tekla Structures has been used worldwide by leading firms like Alstom Power, Hitachi Power, Foster Wheeler, L&T group, Saipem, Tecnimont ICB, Toyo, Bechtel, UHDE, Techint, Thermax & many more for the designing of plant structures.

Intergraph software was used to plan the systems, and external 2D software was used to handle the parts for the basic engineering. Workflow inconsistencies initially led to the parts being rejected in the planning process, which Tekla Structures managed to deal with later on. In this project, the ability to import Microstation format (DGN) reference models and to carry out highquality importing and exporting of object-oriented SDNF files was of great help. This was a decisive advantage for planning and modelling extensions to the existing construction. In conclusion, this kind of data compatibility guarantees success in international projects. After the work on the Chinese coal power station project was successfully completed, the modelling licences were transferred to Germany and have since been used by the company in Stuttgart.
Power Generation Plant, Huasco, Chile
Super Thermal Power Plant, Nigrie, Madhya PradeshLarsen & Toubro (L&T), a technology-driven engineering and construction organisation, bagged a contract from a power vehicle of Jaypee Group Jaiprakash Power Ventures (JPVL) for the supply and erection of the Boiler and Steam Turbine and Generator (STG) islands for the 2x660MW Jaypee Nigrie Super Thermal Power Project. The part of the contract for the Boiler Island has been given to L&T-MHI Boilers (LMBPL).
Jaypee Nigrie Super Thermal Power Project comprising 2 x 660 MW Super-critical Unit will be set up by JPVL at a site in Nigrie - Village, Tehsil - Deosar, District - Singrauli in Madhya Pradesh.
|Location:||Nigrie, Madhya Pradesh|
|Project Owner:||Jaiprakash Power Ventures Ltd (JPVL), the designated power vehicle of Jaypee Group|
|General Contractor:||L&T-MHI Pvt. Ltd. (JV between L&T Ltd. And Mitsubishi heavy Industries Limited, Japan)|
|Structural Design, Detailing & fabrication:||L&T MHI|
From this detailed boiler structure of approximately 15,000 MT almost 20000 part drawings and 13,000 assembly drawings were extracted during detailed engineering stage. This model involves all the complexities with respect to layout, interfaces with all Piping & ducting equipment /system as well as their operation and maintenance requirement.
Mr. B.K. Chaurasia, Structural Head (L&T MHI) mentioned that by adopting Tekla structures, there were huge productivity gains and reduction of engineering time cycle. He further cited that Tekla Structures has also helped them in eliminating duplication of efforts at various stages of analysis, design and detailing and thereby achieving complete freedom from risks of errors, misinterpretation and rework due to the errors slipping to the construction site.
