    Quick facts

    2019 awardees:

    CGCOII and AIIRM in the category of the best Industry 4.0 project: Smart-Factory ILBOC.

ILBOCthe Iberian Lube Base Oils Company, S.A., was established in 2012 in its plant located in the Valley of Escombreras, Cartagena and was owned 30% by Repsol Petroleum and 70% by SK Lubricants for the production of cutting-edge lubricant bases (LBO) (group II and III). The company has relied on IDEA since 2014 for the development of multidisciplinary engineering works, digital transformation and outsourcing.

BIM Digital Twin: tools and functionalities

Successfully completed the development of new digital tools for our client, ILBOC S.A., as part of the BIM Digital Twin functionalities focused on reliability, engineering and maintenance management.

The benefits provided by implementing this application type in the daily workflow of reliability and maintenance professionals consolidate the use of the BIM format as a key tool to improve efficiency and quality in both disciplines.

ILBOC, a benchmark company, has been relying on our engineering, Recruitment & Outsourcing and Digital Transformation services since 2014, the latest of which focusing on our Bim Digital Twin product.


Tools and functionalities:

  • Maintenance Assistant

This tool connects the 3D format with the planning of maintenance and engineering works, showing on which plant assets a task is being executed and what are its features. In addition, it has an interference calculation engine between works and a tool for automatic report generation.

Knowing in advance the environment in which a work is going to be executed is not only necessary to ensure staff safety but also to anticipate possible setbacks that may occur during execution.

Likewise, being able to perform high-level simulationson plant work planning and to monitor the state of the assets provide technicians with a powerful tool to support the decision-making process.

  • BI3D

The functionality was developed for the reliability department with the aim of running reliabilitystudies on plant assetswith the spatial vision provided by the BIM model.

The tool connects interactive reports fed in real-time from the plant sensors using the BIM model. These boards are developed with Business Intelligence tools to predict the effect of the different plant damage mechanisms on the assets. Its link with the BIM model makes it easy to locate all those assets that are most likely to undergo early impairment in order to focus on resources more effectively and efficiently during inspection works.

IDEA BIM Digital Twin, represents an absolute revolution in the field of Digital Twins. It is the first non-intrusive solution that respects all current workflows and is quick to deploy and easy to use.

IDEA continues developing our BIM Digital Twin hand in hand with ILBOC, which still relies on us for digitalisation works for their industrial environment and bets on the benefits that this new methodology can bring to their work ecosystem.
