Cajun Utilizes AWP
Procedures and implementation strategies have been well defined; however, the industry still recognizes an issue with deploying Advanced Work Packaging (AWP). More specifically, a gap exists between the Engineering, Procurement, and Construction disciplines. This is where Cajun’s determination to continually raise the bar can be seen in action.
Cajun employees are utilizing cloud-based, proprietary software to deploy each scope of the work directly in the field. Using Apple iPads and the Knaack Data Vault, crews can gain an in-depth perspective of each scope of work and instantly submit requests for information and material with the push of a button. This, and a host of other capabilities is provided to each crew in a secure network environment that is continually monitored to ensure data integrity is always maintained.
Ultimately, Cajun aims to empower our employees by providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to innovate. Technology and information management are the glue that binds the entire AWP process.
Our Workface Planning and AWP teams’ interface with Engineering and Procurement before each project. This ensures that Cajun has access to the correct data and that the generators of data know that we expect them to deliver it.
This technology will be utilized to carry out the scope on a major mechanical contract at the ExxonMobil Baytown Refinery in Baytown, Texas over the next 18 months.
We will continue to lead the way, not only as an EPC company but also as innovators empowering all team members with the tools to succeed.
