Bechtel has won a CETI Award for the company’s innovative use of RFID technology on the liquefied natural gas projects Bechtel is building on Curtis Island in Queensland, Australia.
The CETI Awards honor individuals and companies that have conducted new and emerging technology implementations and are awarded by Fiatech, an international group dedicated to the global development and adoption of innovative practices and technologies. Bechtel received the award in the Intelligent and Automated Construction Jobsite category.
Bechtel deployed the Jovix™ system from Atlas RFID Solutions, Inc. to assist in the tracking and delivery of materials from multiple storage locations to the three project construction sites. The tracking and delivery for the projects presented unique challenges given the vast size of the construction sites and their island location, requiring the materials to be stored on the mainland and transported across a harbor. The approach enabled automation of work processes typically performed manually and resulted in better than expected efficiencies.
