Systems Engineering of great importance for Solar Team Twente
Solar Team Twente is currently competing in the World Solar Challenge in Darwin, Australia. This biennial event takes place at the Stuart Highway, a 3000 kilometer road from Darwin in the north of Australia to Adelaide in the south. A total of 42 teams from 24 different countries are participating in 3 different classes. Solar Team Twente is active in the Challenger Class, the Formula 1 class for solar-powered cars. The main goal is to build a solar-powered car that travels the distance of 3000 kilometers faster than other teams.
Relatics at ZuidasDok: already of added value during the proposal stage
“The ministry of infrastructure, ProRail and the city of Amsterdam decided in 2013 to implement Relatics at the earliest stage of the ZuidasDok development.
The project ZuidasDok is a combination of urban developments and infrastructural projects to improve the accessibility of the Zuidas as well as accessibility to the densely populated north western part of the Netherlands.
The goal is to further the development of the Zuidas as an international top location. A sustainable and mixed urban center where the combination of prime commercial and residential real estate with ample public facilities ensures an attractive neighborhood.”
Control over project structures and reliable information thanks to Relatics
“Within Heijmans Relatics is widely used for Systems Engineering. Following the initial introduction at our infra branch, usage is also growing at the utility branch of our company. The use of Relatics has resulted in control over our project structures and more reliable information. The flexible nature of Relatics allows us to offer our clients tailor made solutions while keeping information management simple.”
Systems Engineering for the largest civil engineering project in the Netherlands
Maasvlakte 2 is the largest civil engineering project in the Netherlands since the Delta Works. It consists of a new port and supporting infrastructure on reclaimed land adjoining the Maasvlakte. Approximately 5000 acres will be reclaimed, behind a 2.5 mile long dike; approximately 2500 acres will be used by port related industries. It is an extension of the Port of Rotterdam.
The area is expected to become operational in 2013; container terminal operators APM Terminals and Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) began construction of their terminals in 2012. RWG is the main competitor for European Container Terminals (ECT), currently the biggest container terminal operator in Rotterdam. RWG’s new terminal includes a 65 feet deep dock and its own railroad station, it would be capable of handling 2.35 million containers annually.
We highly value the possibility to adjust the software during a project
“Relatics is very easy to use, flexible and scalable. We highly value the possibility to adjust the software during the course of a project to adhere to changing needs. Therefore we use Relatics in a growing number of both Dutch and international projects. Over the years we met in the Relatics company a very trustworthy partner.”
