HUNTSVILLE,Ala., September 20, 2007 – Aquatech International, a water industry leader offering water and wastewater treatment solutions and services to industrial and infrastructure clients, has joined the Intergraph SmartPlant® Alliance Program as a services member.
Aquatech will now have the ability to offer services and solutions to its customers based on Intergraph’s SmartPlant Foundation software, an open, independent system that organizes and manages plant information for the life of the plant. Designed for phased implementation by owner operators and engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) firms, SmartPlant Foundation builds a comprehensive electronic library about a plant. It encompasses a plant’s design, modifications, upgrades and refurbishment, effectively managing the evolving plant configuration from front-end engineering design to plant decommissioning.
“Aquatech recognizes Intergraph as the premier solutions provider for process plant design, construction and life cycle tracking software products,” said Jim Matharu, vice president for ARIES, Aquatech’s Enterprise Services Division. “We also believe that SmartPlant Foundation is the leading technology for facilitating plant data handover and is a growing force in helping EPC companies provide additional value to their clients. By working with Intergraph, we see opportunities to not only assist our customers in a more efficient handover of engineering information from the project team to the owner operator, but also to better control the flow of information between all parties involved in the plant design.”
Patrick Holcomb, executive vice president, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, said “Intergraph and our SmartPlant Alliance Program members work together to provide open and accelerated solutions to all customers. We welcome value-added service providers like Aquatech to join the SmartPlant Alliance Program and offer value-added solutions built around our SmartPlant product suite.”
