OpenPlant Support Engineering CONNECT Edition

Plant Equipment supports for OpenPlant Modeler Software

OpenPlant Support Engineer CONNECT Edition is to enable EPC and owner-operators to accelerate the design, modeling, and placement of plant supports and support assemblies for plant piping, electrical, and HVAC components.

OpenPlant Support Engineer CONNECT Edition also includes an extensive catalog of supports and supports assemblies from a growing number of vendors, increasing the accuracy of supports modeled.

OpenPlant Support Engineer CONNECT Edition quickly creates support models for piping, HVAC, or electrical equipment using pre-defined supports and allows the user to examine multiple support options.

OpenPlant Support Engineer CONNECT Edition enables users to save overall project time by reducing time spent on designing and modeling supports and support assemblies.

Users can modify existing supports from OpenPlant Support Engineering’s out-of-the-box catalog to create their own catalog of supports.

Benefits :

  • Quickly and accurately, design, and model detailed supports for your piping, electrical, and HVAC equipment with OpenPlant Support Engineering. Save time and reduce errors through interoperability with piping stress and structural data created in other design tools. Lower software costs by economically scaling the software’s deployment to fit any size project.
  • OpenPlant Support Engineering enables you to:
  • Save time modeling basic supports and complex support assemblies through the use of extensive vendor catalog content
  • Increase productivity and reduce time supporting design tasks with fast, accurate placement of supports for piping, tray, raceway, and HVAC
  • Streamline your design using i-models or OpenPlant ModelServer-based workflows to import piping stress and structural analysis results to quickly determine support requirements
  • Ensure accuracy in the construction phase with detailed support drawings and bills of material



  • Design a 3D plant physical model
  • Design engineered supports
  • Generate plant project deliverables
  • Perform collaborative plant engineering
