REAL-LIFE PROJECT EXAMPLE: Modural Hydrogen Plant Design
Mahler AGS, an international leader in designing and manufacturing hydrogen generation plants, was employed to design and manufacture a modular hydrogen plant for a leading global company in the palm oil business. As part of the modular design principle, Mahler preassembled and delivered the plant as prefabricated units.
Mahler AGS was looking for both a new pipe stress analysis software as well as one to replace its existing design software (X-Plant) that included a modern 3D planning solution. The new system needed to be compatible with the previous AutoCAD-based software, easy-to-use, and fast to implement so it could minimize project downtime and delay. CADWorx Plant Professional and CAESAR II were chosen due to their AutoCAD-based structure, scalability, and suitability for the project scope.
A tight time schedule and mixed existing ASME/DIN EN piping codes affected the design and manufacturing process of the new plant.

Meeting the strict project deadlines was ensured by the efficiency and accuracy of CADWorx Plant Professional. As an AutoCAD-based solution, most of the users already had experience with a similar product and could get up-to-speed quickly.

Even though this was the first of Mahler’s projects in which CADWorx & Analysis Solutions were used, only a short adoption time was needed because training and design were performed in parallel. Due to the ease of use and quick implementation of both CADWorx Plant Professional and CAESAR II, the design for the new plant was completed within approximately five months from the project start date.
Ultimately, by choosing CADWorx Plant Professional and CAESAR II, Mahler AGS reduced project man-hours by 10-15 percent, with an additional 25-30 percent reduction in time spent on stress calculations. The latter is attributed to the overarching compatibility between Hexagon PPM solutions, requiring fewer model revisions throughout the design process, regardless of the amount of overall changes.
