Ides MasterConcept has been commissioned to handle all types of plant information


Ides MasterConcept has been commissioned to handle all types of plant information within Skellefteå Kraft. With regulations for structuring the plant information, the information flow can be secured in a simply and cost-effectively way by controlling, standardizing, maintaining and implementing plant changes.

MasterConcept –Master of plant data and documents

MasterConcept will handle Skellefteå Kraft’s production facilities for wind power, hydropower and heat- and bioenergy. The plant information is today available in different systems and it is important for the client that the information can be structured and managed in a future-safe way. In order to easily secure Skellefteå Kraft’s information flow from projects to management, all plant information will now be collected in a common IT support – a Master.

  • MasterConcept will handle routines, instructions and technical documents to make maintenance work safer and with higher precision. As Skellefteå Kraft now complies all documentation and information in a central system, future integrations and costs are simplified due to a higher information quality, says Lars Geidne CEO at Ides AB.

Support for users

Technical requirements for information security and functions has been an important part in the procurement of a new IT support. The client has also put a lot of focus on user- friendliness and wants a modern, intuitive and easy using system. The user experience is important because everyone needs to be able to enjoy working in a common system.

Standardize according to IEC/ISO 81346

MasterConcept supports both new and old standards regarding the designation of different components and documents of the plant. Skellefteå Kraft will not only comply with standards such as SS EN 81346/IEC-ISO 81346 for new plants but also being able to connect information to older designation in existing facilities.

Borås Energi och Miljö AB has selected Ides MasterConcept as their future IT-platform for all types of plant information. With structured plant information, Borås Energi och Miljö can easily verify, standardize, maintain, analyze and implement plant changes.

MasterConcept – a strategic platform in the IT environment

Borås Energi och Miljö runs a big investment project (EMC – Energy and Environment Center), where a new central heating power plant and sewage treatment plant is being built at the same location to achieve the greatest possible synergies. The project will deliver large amounts of technical plant information where it is important that Borås Energi och Miljö can effectively retrieve and manage the information.

– A large amount of plant information from suppliers will be in a form of documents, but Borås Energi och Miljö also want MasterConcept to take care of pure plant information that must be stored in a structured way. One example is the EMC investment project, where deliveries of BIM information easily can be managed and maintained, says Fredrik Andersson, IT Architect at Borås Energi och Miljö.

Complex BIM models and plant information

The technical plant information is key information for most departments in Borås Energi och Miljö. The concept of Plant Information refers to both traditional plant documentation including 3D models (BIM) but also equipment, component data and economically related information.

– MasterConcept offers more than just managing CAD drawings and documents. Today, there are different roles and people who should be able to analyze what equipment there is and where it is located in the plant. With MasterConcept integration with 3D BIM that connects information inside complex 3D models, Borås Energi och Miljö will have full support for structuring the information in MasterConcept in the future, says Lars Geidne CEO Ides AB.

Sigma IT Consulting – partner in the delivery of MasterConcept

Sigma IT Consulting is an Ides Partner and Reseller and has long experience of implementing systems and integrations. Sigma will jointly with Ides AB deliver services and integrations.

About HSarchitects

HSa originates from a native ideal about humanism, i.e. to create a brand-new design partnership paradigm so that excellent talents, while pursuing their respective ideals, can work together to create extraordinary value. Over the years, in spite of constant expansion of its business portfolio and diversification, HSa has never changed its core spirit of humanism. In terms of the brand image, “HS” is a combination of the initials of two Chinese characters where “H”, short for “Han” in Chinese, refers to the extensive and profound traditional culture, and “S”, an abbreviation for “Si” in Chinese, refers to constant thinking and researching. In combination, “HS” is intended to show a integrated commitment to provision of the best architectural design services in the local market of China.

In contrast to the centralization model of traditional Chinese design institutes, HSa adopts an entirely different model by allying different professional teams for different design businesses, including planning, construction, structural engineering, MEP engineering, landscape, interior design and its recently established BIM digital design business.
