Intergraph Signs Global Alliance Agreement with Siemens Power Generation

Global Adoption of SmartPlant Portfolio Continues Among Industry-Leading Companies

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 22, 2005 – Intergraph Corporation today announced that it has signed a five-year, multimillion-dollar Global Alliance Agreement with the Power Generation group of Siemens AG to standardize worldwide on Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise suite of software and engineering integration technology.

The agreement includes services and the total SmartPlant® software portfolio of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine. Applications range from SmartPlant Foundation for information and workflow management to the engineering and design tools such as SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical and MARIAN® for material and supply management.

“Because of the high degree of interdisciplinary integration of the new SmartPlant software, we expect a further increase of productivity and quality within engineering as well as increased collaboration from the implementation of our global work share concept. The possibility of integrating third-party software via Intergraph’s integration adapters and the use of open interfaces to support the communication with external partners provides increased opportunities for an even more efficient support of our engineering processes,” explains Frank Schnabel, Head of Plant Engineering, Siemens Power Generation, Energy Solutions division.

Gerhard Sallinger, president of the Intergraph Process, Power & Marine division, said: “Once again, Intergraph competed for a large contract, and once again, Intergraph has been selected. Siemens’ decision demonstrates our global leadership in the Power Industry with more than 100 companies using our software to design and operate power plants of all types and size.”
