CHIYODA CORPORATION FUELS PROJECT SUCCESS WITH FASTER DECISION-MAKING AND ENHANCED VISIBILITY
Every time you turn on your stove, fire up your boiler, or throw some clothes in the dryer, there’s a good chance that liquefied natural gas (LNG) is making the process possible. Responsible not only for the majority of the residential and commercial sector’s energy needs, LNG is also used in heavy goods transportation and powers a large proportion of the industrial sector. Plus, because it is a clean-burning fuel, it is increasingly being used in electricity generation. Add all of this together, and it becomes clear that natural gas is powering a significant part of your world, every day.
You can imagine then, the pressures that come with being responsible for a great deal of the world’s LNG plants. This is the position Chiyoda Corporation finds itself in, having built a mammoth 40 percent of them - including the world’s largest liquefied natural gas plant in Qatar.
This pressure only increased as the company decided to branch out into solar and solar-thermal power generation and hydrogen supply. The owners knew that if this growth was to continue, Chiyoda’s project management capabilities would have to be at the cutting edge.
PROVIDING THE WORLD'S POWER REQUIRES POWERFUL PROJECT MANAGEMENT SOFTWARE
With this expansion and continuing LNG projects in mind, Chiyoda needed a solution that could provide a single platform for planning, managing, and analysing projects worldwide - helping to reduce risk and optimise resource allocation across its large-scale projects. The company also required greater visibility into past projects to help improve project data accuracy and support faster decision-making. Ultimately, there was only one choice.
Oracle Primavera’s real-time reporting and analytics, coupled with its ability to integrate seamlessly with other applications, enabled the swift aggregation of past project data from each of Chiyoda’s subsidiaries.
“We chose Oracle’s Primavera project management solution because it offers robust, easy-to-use, anytime, anywhere access to project data across all regions instead of just a single country,” explains Junichi Masukawa, Associate Director at Chiyoda Corporation.
“We now have consistent view of project status and resource requirements, helping us to maximise our resources and reduce project risk."
As well as this anytime, anywhere access to project data providing greater levels of insight and productivity, Oracle Primavera has provided Chiyoda with a single view of global resource requirements to enable smarter resource allocation, and the ability to track all projects to help avoid delays and minimise risk.
