Dassault Systemes Eyes Infrastructure Management Space
Mr Prashanth Mysore
Hyderabad, Nov. 3:
Dassault Systemes, a global solutions provider for aerospace and defence applications, today said that the company was looking at providing solutions for urban infrastructure management, and nuclear and other plants in India.
“The market for such solutions is set to grow in India as they are benchmarking themselves to global standards,” Mr Prashanth Mysore, Director-Global Industry Solutions, Dassault Systemes India, said. “What we have managed to do so in a rapidly urbanising China, working with cities such as Shenzhen and Shanghai, we plan to replicate in India — both project wise and also from a city specific perspective.”
Speaking to Business Line at the CII meet on Urban Infrastructure, Mr Mysore said that this division with revenues of over $2 billion offers four dimensional architectural modelling and augmented virtual reality with the fourth dimension being time and cost. This is very important for better infrastructure management when Governments and companies take up new projects.
Following the acquisition of a US-based corporation, Garhey Technologies, Dassault has begun to offer these modelling services and is working with more than 20 cities globally, a good number of them in China. The company has tied up with SMEDI, the nodal agency in China which works on improvement of cities.
Dassault Systemes is in talks with the Union Urban and Transport Ministries to offer solutions. The solutions could cover project centric design services and also utilities such as ports and airports in the city concerned.
