Maurício Mendonça Godoy Brings The Art of 3D to Oil and Gas

The AVATAR project was a success thanks to Maurício Mendonça Godoy, SETAL, and AVEVA. Maurício Mendonça Godoy, the CEO of SETAL, brought together the technology-based company AVEVA to help make the process of building energy plants more efficient. SETAL is in the business of oil, natural gases, chemicals, and other resources. The main office is in Rio de Janerio, but SETAL operates across Latin America. AVEVA is also based in Brazil.

Engineering combined with technology has how AVEVA tightened up the energy projects. One method they have perfected is created 3D models of the plants and the parts before construction ever begins. Maurício Mendonça Godoy and other staff members were able to take virtual tours of their plant before it ever broke ground. Because of this feature, changes could be reworked into any area well before any details were finalized. The ability to configure every aspect of such a large project saves time and funds. In the traditional plant building platforms, ideas were made, and plans were drawn. During the building process, things might need to be adjusted or altered. When this happens, the plans need to go back to the engineering team to be reworked. AVEVA has taken that messy part out of the equation. Check out to read more about Mauricio Godoy.

AVATAR was one of the first projects for Maurício Mendonça Godoy using the 3D models. The success of it changed the business model of SETAL. SETAL now has the advantages of creating many models and plans for all of the resources it is involved in. Each plant can be worked over and over again until it is finely tuned to the specs needed by the managers and crew. Traditionally working plans multiple times used a lot of billable hours and human resources, but with the use of AVEVA’s programs, the tasks become very manageable.

The future of energy plants in Latin America and across the world is growing at an astounding rate. Many facilities will need to be built to handle the load, and with business, such as SETAL, proper management, and tech-savvy engineers, more energy resources can be obtained. The operations also aid the Brazilian economy. All the companies involved in the AVATAR project, employ several hundred people. Connect:
