AVEVA Accepting Nominations for “Engineering Excellence to the Extreme” Contest
Winners to be honored at AVEVA’s International Symposium for Engineering IT (ISEIT) 2007

Houston, Texas – July 18, 2007 – Across the globe, if you see a big project – a complicated project – a project that calls for ‘extreme engineering’ and problem-solving – chances, are, an AVEVA customer and AVEVA’s technology played some part in bringing that project to life.

To recognize these customers and their achievements, AVEVA is hosting its second annual “Engineering Excellence to the Extreme” contest. Winners and their projects will be profiled at AVEVA Americas’ International Symposium for Engineering IT (ISEIT) 2007 ( www.iseit.com), which is being held October 21 through 23 in San Antonio, Texas.

Previous award winners have included Arauco, for designing and engineering the US $1 billion Itata, Chile wood pulp and sawmill; Petrobras, for completing a 3D model of its Reduc refinery distillation unit in Brazil in just 40 hours; SBM Imodco for designing the largest internal turret mooring floating production system ever built; and Tri Ocean Engineering for designing and engineering the Niglintgak surface facility in arctic conditions with minimal environmental impact.
In order to qualify for an Engineering Excellence award, AVEVA technology must have been used on some part of the project. Companies should also demonstrate what makes this project an example of extraordinary engineering challenges overcome – whether it be scope, environmental, safety, risk, completion time, or other factors.
