HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 14, 2007 – Intergraph Corporation today announced that Hatch Ltd., a global provider of consulting and technology services in the energy, mining and metals, and infrastructure industries, will standardize on Intergraph’s SmartPlant® Materials, powered by MARIAN®. As Hatch realizes growth in its global engagements, SmartPlant Materials will provide an integrated materials management for its engineering, procurement, construction activities within the organization’s overall project delivery suite. This will empower Hatch to drive internal global standardization initiatives and enhance the link between its highly dynamic 3D design environment and the purchasing and logistics operations.
SmartPlant Materials, as part of Intergraph’s SmartPlant suite, is a scaleable, Web-enabled offering that lowers total project and installed costs, drives standardization, mitigates risk, facilitates global project worksharing, and enables data re-use throughout the plant life cycle. SmartPlant Materials supersedes MARIAN, Intergraph’s market-leading materials management solution for engineering, procurement and construction companies and owner/operators.
“Hatch is increasingly becoming involved in projects that are international in scope, and we are confident that Intergraph’s technology will meet our needs and help us support our clients on a global level,” said Daryl Ofstie, global practice director, Hatch Ltd. “Intergraph has been a key resource for our operations in Australia for more than a decade. Because of our positive experiences with SmartPlant Materials in Perth, we will commence the global deployment of the solution within our Australian offices, rolling it out to our other global locations thereafter.”
“Intergraph’s SmartPlant Materials is the trusted solution for optimizing management and control of materials management and controls on process, power, and maritime projects,” stated Patrick Holcomb, executive vice president of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine. “By leveraging this materials management technology, Hatch can look forward to increasing productivity through standardization, saving time and money, and reducing risk across the organization.”
