The European Spallation Source (ESS) – a research infrastructure project funded and operated by a partnership of European countries – has selected Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to help with the development of a neutron research facility in Lund, Sweden.
ESS will be using the ‘Integrated Plant Engineering’ industry solution experience. This will enable digital design and collaboration applications to be used across a unified environment that connects thousands of engineers, designers and manufacturers across Europe.
Once completed, the facility will help enable a more efficient approach to existing neutron scattering research and enable opportunities for sustainable innovations in a number of areas. These include clean energy, structural engineering, food technologies, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, IT and transportation.
ESS and Dassault Systèmes have worked together since 2012, and the ‘Integrated Plant Engineering’ industry solution experience will now provide a collaborative environment for design control and design data consolidation.
“With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and guidance from Dassault Systèmes’ local team and its partner TechniaTranscat, everyone involved in the ESS project can create, update and reuse information related to designing and building the neutron research facility in a controlled and traceable manner,” said Peter Rådahl, head of the engineering and integration support division at ESS. “ESS is a long-term initiative for society’s future and we need the best tools available to make it a reality.”
“ESS is one of today’s largest science and technology infrastructure projects and open pathways to important discoveries,” said Monica Menghini, executive vice president, chief strategy officer, Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps to securely link and simplify stakeholder relationships in this international collaboration. Users like ESS benefit from capabilities to deliver technically challenging plants on time, meet budgets and specifications, minimise waste and maximise process efficiencies.”
