HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Nov. 3, 2009 – Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR), one of the leading engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance (EPCM) companies in the world and longtime Intergraph® customer, has renewed its Global Alliance Agreement (GAA) with Intergraph for the next five years. This agreement covers the Intergraph SmartPlant® and SmartMarine® Enterprise software suites, including SmartPlant 3D, PDS®, SmartPlant P&ID, and SmartPlant Instrumentation and numerous other solutions.
As an Intergraph customer for 35 years, Fluor uses Intergraph enterprise engineering solutions on a significant number of its mid- and large-tier contracts across multiple industry sectors – oil and gas, power, mining, and chemical.
SmartPlant Enterprise is an integrated solutions suite that provides full design, construction, materials and engineering data management capabilities needed for the creation, safe operation and maintenance, and capital Project Life Cycle Management (cPLM) of process, power, marine and offshore projects.
