Industrial growth in Eastern Siberia has led to an increased demand for electricity, strengthening the need for additional power stations in the area. In 2007 E.ON acquired the BGRES-3 Ignite-fired and Berezovskaya power stations, with the intention of expanding both sites to accommodate growing demand in the region. The project commenced in 2011 under the management of E.ON New Build & Technology (ENT) in collaboration with Unipro (formerly E.ON Russia). Total project investment amounts to around 1bn Euros, with commissioning planned for 2014. thinkproject has been implemented as ENT’s standard solution for all its new plant construction projects.
The project platform supports the central organisation of all correspondence between ENT in Germany, Unipro, as well as Russian general contractor and personnel at the local construction site. Each of the approximately 15,000 letters are managed as a task via thinkproject until it is completed or answered.
Quality control plans and documents are also processed via thinkproject. For example; the general contractor sends document packages to E.ON for the formal checking. As soon as the documents are approved the general contractor uploads them to the platform. Following special implemented rules in thinkproject the documents are distributed automatically to the responsible approver.
Team members can work in their preferred language setting due to the complete graphical user interface, saving time manually translating and providing multilingual information management. The language settings includes individual filters, document properties and value lists which can now be implemented in German, English and Russian.
Energy provider E.ON operates in over 30 countries, serving over 33-million customers. Based in Essen, since 2000 the company has gone from strength to strength with a series of mergers and acquisitions. E.ON operates in several energy areas including nuclear and renewable energy.
