Awards were announced in 39 categories, with winners chosen from more than 2,600 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. Bentley Systems was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in the CityNext Partner of the Year category.

Bentley Systems CEO Greg Bentley said, “We are honored to have received this prestigious award which recognizes Bentley as a provider of cloud-based software solutions powered by Azure, for the advancement of infrastructure projects throughout the world, and specifically for Mass Rapid Transit Corporation’s [MRTC] outstanding Sungai Buloh-Serdang-Putrajaya [SSP] line in Malaysia. MRTC is going digital, harnessing Bentley and Microsoft technology to deliver one of the most ambitious infrastructure projects ever undertaken in Asia.”

With more than 1.7 million people residing in just 94 square miles, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia has one of the highest population densities globally. As a result, it is estimated that residents living in the Greater Klang Valley region collectively spend 280 million hours per year stuck in traffic. The SSP line is the second line of MRTC’s Klang Valley Mass Rapid Transit railway project, which will create better mobility for residents and make it possible to ease traffic by an estimated 160,000 cars daily. As Malaysia’s largest infrastructure project, the SSP line includes 11 interchange stations, making it easier for commuters to transfer to existing and future rail lines, while 16 stations will have park and ride facilities. In addition to creating an estimated 130,000 new employment opportunities, the line has the potential to generate RM 20 billion in cost savings per year as a result of reduced traffic congestion.

The MRTC project team utilizes Bentley OpenRail’s connected data environment comprising the shared services of ProjectWise and AssetWise, powered by Microsoft Azure to ensure seamless information exchange, real-time collaboration, and management of asset information across the lifecycle, among hundreds of team members.

Poh Seng Tiok, director of planning and design for MRTC noted that on a project of this scale and complexity, it is essential to effectively manage and share the huge amount of data across the entire project—from design and construction, through to operation and asset management.

Mr. Poh said, “We need to make sure that all the different [project] phases are well covered and information that we build up during design, and during construction are taken forward during the operation and maintenance stage for better understanding. By turning to the Bentley/Microsoft cloud-based solution, we are able to streamline collaboration across all teams and identify and mitigate potential issues, before they impact cost, schedule, and safety. We expect to increase productivity by about 35 percent, through reducing design rework by providing real-time, accurate information.”

Through the partnership with Bentley Systems and Microsoft, MRTC expects to complete the project on time and within budget by 2022. Watch the project video here. Learn more about the featured project here.

Arthur D. Little: Nord Stream 2 Provides Economic Benefits, Generates Innovation and Helps to Develop Contractors’ Businesses21.5.2019 11:00:00 EESTTiedote

The second part of a recent report from Arthur D. Little (ADL) – “Nord Stream 2 economic impact in the construction phase” – analyzes the economic effects (job creation and GDP) of the ongoing project to build two new gas pipelines from Russia to Germany. The report, which is a follow-up to an earlier report created in 2017, analyzes the current status of project investment and concludes that the total economic benefit to the European Union (EU) represents €9.9 billion for building the pipelines. In comparison to the first report (2017), which was carried out in the procurement phase, more than twice as much CAPEX has now been committed and spent in several EU and non-EU countries now that the project is in the middle of construction. More than 1,000 contractors from all over Europe and Russia are contributing to the realization of the project. This includes both large international firms providing materials or construction services and small enterprises providing expert services. Furt

1 In 10 Banks Will Disappear over the Next 5 Years, According to A.T. Kearney21.5.2019 11:00:00 EESTTiedote

A ten-year study from global management consultancy A.T. Kearney has found that the profit of European retail banks/divisions is at an all-time high, driven by a positive economic environment and lower risks (risk costs relative to total income at lowest level 5% compared to 12% in 2008). Yet, the topline stagnates at (+ 1% in western Europe). A.T. Kearney’s ‘Retail Banking Radar 2019’ analyzes data from 92 banks across Europe and found that despite continued strong growth in volumes, income remains weak with a dramatic drop in income per client (-1.1% 2018 vs 2017; -11% 2018 vs 2008). Meanwhile, a quarter (24.6%) of bank branches across Europe has closed since 2008. The study shows that the industry faces a critical transformation amidst rising consumer demand for digital banking and the growing possibilities of open banking, revealing four key areas: Redefine target operating models, accelerate cost reduction and introduce new agile ways of working Rebalance the organization both in
