HUNTSVILLE, Ala., July 28, 2009 – China National Chemical Engineering Co., LTD. (CNCEC), one of China’s largest engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) concerns, has expanded the use of Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise design and engineering software to five of its operating companies to further increase productivity and cost savings and to accelerate project schedules.
An existing Intergraph customer, CNCEC had already experienced the benefits and productivity gains using Intergraph’s next-generation 3D modeling and visualization, information management, instrumentation, and piping and instrumentation diagram software solutions. Now, CNCEC will expand use of these solutions, including SmartPlant 3D, further into five more companies within the CNCEC group: China Tianchen Engineering Co, Ltd.; Sedin Engineering Co. Ltd.; East China Engineering Science and Technology Co., Ltd.; China Hualu Engineering Co., Ltd.; and China Chengda Engineering Co., Ltd.
SmartPlant Enterprise is an integrated solutions suite that provides design, construction, materials and engineering data management capabilities needed for the creation, safe operation and maintenance, and capital Plant Lifecycle Management (cPLM) of large-scale process, power, marine and offshore projects. The software’s life cycle data management also enables a smoother handover for EPCs to owner operators and for owner operators to more easily maintain, refurbish or modify their plants.
“Intergraph solutions have played a vital role in helping us to boost productivity, reduce costs and shorten project schedules so that we can more quickly and efficiently meet our customers’ demands,” said Mr. Lu Hongxing, President of CNCEC. “As we move forward, SmartPlant Enterprise solutions will be crucial to the successful development and operation of not only our business, but also enable our clients’ projects to come to market more effectively and quickly.”
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power and Marine president, said, “We are pleased to have CNCEC expand their usage of SmartPlant Enterprise software. As a leading EPC in China, we highly value their trust and commitment to our solutions as a factor in their success. This success and the firm’s decision to expand SmartPlant use throughout the group demonstrates Intergraph’s leadership in China, and also how fast the Chinese firms are adopting modern technology.”
The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph the No.1 overall engineering design 3D software and process engineering tools (PET) provider worldwide and in Asia according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013.
