We are pleased to announce that Essar Projects Limited (EPL) a global Engineering, Procurement and Construction Company has decided to implement STRUMIS across all their fabrication sites following successful enhanced material management and project monitoring proven through a pilot deployment at one of their largest sites - a palletization plant at Paradip.
From its early beginnings as India’s first independent marine contractor, EPL has developed a capability that spans many activities and its expertise has been used worldwide, with a track record that is above and beyond that of many other engineering, procurement and construction companies.
The implementation of STRUMIS will provide EPL with an improved method for managing projects with accuracy and efficiency, and will ensure the highest quality in their service.
STRUMIS provides the user with the ability to view the status of all of their projects in 3D models and by utilising this unique, live, 3D model viewer they are able to visually track all of the components of the models in any project in real time; viewing current production status and all the related vital information. EPL’s implementation of STRUMIS into their sites is to create a more efficient workflow from initial tender through to project completion, with the ability to keep clients and sub contractors up-to-date with real time project information.
Mr Alwyn Bowden CEO & President Essar Projects commenting on their vision: ‘to be a Global Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC) Contracting Company executing projects to world class standards for our customers and delivering industry benchmarked value to our stakeholders, we are confident that STRUMIS will be one of the resources to help us achieve our stated vision’.

Mr. Srinivas Tata, CIO Essar Projects commenting on the investment in STRUMIS: ‘The cross-over of departments using STRUMIS will streamline our material management and project monitoring. The ability for any member of the appropriate department management team to provide real time data to clients is fantastic for the business to client relationship’.
