“Technip is one of the few fully integrated engineering companies in the world that can provide virtually all services, including engineering design, construction, procurement and maintenance of floating production units required for offshore oil and gas production,” said Gerhard Sallinger, president, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine. “IntelliShip is expected to speed time to first oil for Technip clients and reduce cost while increasing engineering quality and constructability.”
John Wishart, senior vice president of engineering & services, Technip USA, said, “The overall product direction and the potential of IntelliShip to improve productivity in an extremely demanding offshore industry are just two of the reasons why Technip is implementing the Intergraph software. Intergraph has worked closely with our engineers to address some of Technip’s unique modeling requirements for floating production units.”
Intergraph made the announcement today at its APEX New Orleans conference where IntelliShip is prominently featured in presentations and demonstrations. In addition, Technip USA experts are featured in significant APEX sessions attended by more than 400 people from the process, power and marine industries.
