BHP Billiton Maruwai Coal – Engineering Information Management


BHP Billiton is one of the world’s largest producers and marketers of export thermal coal servicing the major power markets of Europe, Asia and the US.

Our task

When the company was developing a new coal mine in Indonesia, Consulcad was engaged to implement a solution to deliver Engineering Information Management.

What we did

Consulcad worked with the project controls team on the ground in Balikpapan Indonesia to gather requirements, map workflows and configure the solution. The configuration approach was aligned to BHP’s standard engineering practices and supported the local requirements to provide external contract access which enabled end to end project collaboration where drawings could be submitted, marked up and reviewed.

The outcome

Conculcad’s involvement resulted in:

  • Improved drawing management and data capture
  • Real time contractor access
  • Lower ongoing drawing management costs
  • Reduced risk of errors
  • Improved stakeholder communications
  • Data security
