Project Description

Region Germany
Dates End of 2019 – September 2020
Scope The project included calculation and manufacture of vertical vessels of the VEE or VEP type (GOST 9931-85) (20 units). All vessels are of the same type, but of different sizes.
Project Specific

Carrying out certification of vessels for the EAEU countries (Russia), according to the new codes (GOST 34347 instead of GOST R 52630) – strength calculation strictly as per GOST is required. Previously it was carried out according to EN 13445.

PASS software used PASS/EQUIP
How PASS software helped in the project execution

PASS/EQUIP Vessel software turned out to be easy to learn and user-friendly.

PASS/EQUIP Vessel calculation technologies and the product functionality helped to execute the project on time, in spite of the fact that the specialists did not have any experience in calculating as per GOST.

Results All vessels were analyzed, manufactured and certified on time, and delivered to the customer.
