Aspen Capital Cost Estimator (ACCE) Delivers Accurate, Consistent and Efficient Estimates Across the Capital Project Lifecycle

Aspen Technology, Inc. (NASDAQ: AZPN), a leading provider of software and services to the process industries, today announced that Linde Engineering North America Inc. (LENA) has standardized on Aspen Capital Cost Estimator (ACCE) estimating technology.

AspenTech’s Aspen Capital Cost Estimator (ACCE) empowers estimators with cutting-edge technology that enables them to rapidly and confidently evaluate capital investment projects early in the design process, understand all the economic implications of engineering decisions and manage projects more profitably.

LENA selected ACCE and extended its use throughout the organization due to the ability of the software to keep projects on schedule and within budget, improve safety performance, and achieve the highest standards of operational excellence. The flexibility and adaptability offered by the aspenONE® Engineering environment was a key factor in LENA’s decision, as was the ability of AspenTech’s economic evaluation solutions to consistently allow engineering companies to increase their incomes by up to 50 percent compared to traditional approaches.

In addition, the company expanded its use of AspenTech’s Process Safety software, which allows Engineering, Procurement & Construction Companies (EPCs) to efficiently conduct safety studies, including pressure safety valve sizing, flare system design and rating, and dynamic analysis for start-up, shutdown, emergencies and compressor surge, all while using simulation data from Aspen HYSYS® and Aspen Plus®.
