Dassault Systèmes and ASE Group Announce Cooperation Agreement to Support Innovation Processes of Large Capital Infrastructure Projects

In Next Phase of Strategic Collaboration between the Two Companies, ASE Will Leverage the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to Extend its Multi-D Solution to Global Consultancy Projects in Facility Design, Construction and Operations

VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France November 8, 2016 Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, and the leading Russian nuclear power plant engineering procurement and construction company ASE Group of Companies (ASE), part of Rosatom Group, today announced the signing of a global, three-year cooperation agreement at the Third International Conference on Nuclear Knowledge Management held at the International Atomic Energy Agency in Vienna.  The agreement is designed to use each company’s core capabilities to deliver greater support for customers’ innovation processes in nuclear power, as well as other segments of the energy, process and utilities industry. 


ASE will leverage Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform as part of its Multi-D Solution offering for large capital facilities design, construction and operations management in nuclear power and other key industrial segments.  ASE’s Multi-D Solution combines Dassault Systèmes’ applications to optimize complex business processes and carry out detailed modeling of construction and installation processes based on multiple sources’ data, with ASE’s integration and consulting services featuring best practices, methodologies and engineering know-how for managing the construction and operations of capital infrastructure facilities.   


Previously, Multi-D was implemented exclusively within ASE’s own projects.  With this agreement, ASE can expand the business value brought by this combined solution to capital construction, production operations and maintenance projects in Russia and abroad on a project management consultancy basis.


“The Multi-D Solution facilitates the effective management of parameters such as budget, deadlines and quality for complex engineering facilities,” said Vyacheslav Alenkov, Director, System Engineering, ASE.  “Our cooperation agreement with Dassault Systèmes enables us to broaden the reach of our innovative Multi-D Solution and bring greater benefits to nuclear and other industries.”  


“Since 2012, we’ve worked with NIAEP, part of ASE Group, to optimize Multi-D for every stage of the business cycle and demonstrate possibilities for greater sustainability in nuclear,” said Thomas Grand, Vice President, Energy, Process and Utilities Industry, Dassault Systèmes.  “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform presents engineering, procurement and construction companies, owners, operators, regulators and suppliers with a trusted collaborative environment to innovate, build, operate, supply and recycle.  The combination of our software capabilities with ASE’s know-how boosts their ability to design and optimize energy production systems and gain a competitive advantage in other industrial sectors.”
