Relieving your headaches in export CMMS projects

From China to the World


The CMMS project for the RPII gas turbine power plant in Malaysia was delivered by Siveco China, in close cooperation with automation vendor ABB and EPC company CNEEC. See case study for more


As China is gaining importance in the international markets, Chinese construction firms and major equipment suppliers have become involved in many infrastructure and industrial projects in Asia, Africa, the Middle-East and, to a lesser extent, Eastern Europe. Projects won by Chinese firms include roads, bridges, metro systems, refineries, telecommunication networks, pipelines, etc. These projects, perhaps due to the influence of European consulting firms in these regions, often require a CMMS to be implemented from the construction stage.


Siveco China, due to its very strong presence in Africa and certain Middle-East and Eastern European nations, is uniquely positioned to assist Chinese engineering companies involved in such projects, who often find themselves at a loss when it comes to the CMMS part of the tenders, as these projects in many ways differ from the “EAM” projects conducted in China. Indeed, plants and infrastructure owners overseas have very different expectations when it comes to such projects.


Siveco China in export projects


Siveco is the only CMMS supplier in China with the ability to support Chinese construction firms in all aspects of their CMMS project on the export market, from the tendering process (bid document preparation, support for clarifications), to delivery in China (early implementation up to FAT) and of course in the target country (local implementation work with local Siveco teams and partners in most countries).


Our project management experience with large infrastructure projects and our industrial know-how, unmatched among CMMS supplier, as well as our ability to work in virtually any country without any legal restriction are some of our strongest advantages.


Our service capability includes:


–  Maintenance engineering services
–  Data preparation
–  CMMS implementation
–  Mobile solutions implementation


We can bid for projects anywhere in the world, without any restriction (ongoing tenders or projects in Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Libya, etc.).


Our back-office team is located in Shanghai (project and R&D team). The project organization currently employs around 40 professionals with engineering and/or CMMS background for all data preparation activities and deployment on site. Our teams are all bilingual Chinese-English, with a dozen of French speaking experts (useful in French-speaking African countries) and 2 Arabic-speakers. The global network of Siveco companies (around 1,200 employees total) can provide additional resources for projects if required.


Spotlight on Africa


Siveco is the number one CMMS supplier on the African content. In addition to a direct presence under the Siveco brand with a regional Technical Center in Tunisia (hosting a R&D center, as well as support services and a local implementation team), Siveco maintains a very strong network of certified service partners in most African countries. Many of our partners are leading maintenance service suppliers or IT companies in their own country.


Siveco maintains teams of certified consultants in the following African countries: Algeria, Angola, Benin, Botswana, Burkina Faso, Chad, Congo, Djibouti, D.R. Congo, Gambia, Ivory Coast, Lesotho, Morocco, Mali, Madagascar, Mauritania, Niger, Reunion island, Sudan, South Africa, Senegal, Swaziland, Tunisia, Togo, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.


Benefits of working with Siveco on export CMMS projects


If you are:


–  An Engineering, Procurement and Construction Company (EPC)
–  An automation supplier involved with an EPC in export projects


and are facing CMMS requirements from your end client.


Your focus is to win the project, for which the CMMS represents only a tiny portion. Experience has proven, on the other hand, that overseas buyers believe that documentation and maintenance preparation is one of the weaknesses of Chinese bidders. As a result, they pay more attention to this seemingly minor part of the project, to which bidders are ill-equipped to respond.


Siveco takes full responsibility for all aspects of the CMMS part of the sales process:


–  Review tender documents and advise your team on how to proceed (free of charge)
–  Prepare CMMS bidding package that can be included in your own bid. We can work on very short notice and have complete proposals ready in a matter of hours, in any language as required.
–  Assist your team in discussions with end-client to close the deal


Our prices are very competitive and, unlike other international suppliers active in China, we are allowed to bid anywhere in the world without any further authorization from our headquarters.
