HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Sept. 2, 2010 – Offshore provider SMOE Pte Ltd., headquartered in Singapore, has become the 400th Intergraph® SmartPlant® Foundation customer underscoring the strong market adoption of the information management solution as the global standard for the process and power plants, marine and offshore industries.
A subsidiary of Sembcorp Marine Group, SMOE is an industry-leading engineering, procurement, construction, transportation, installation and commissioning company serving clients worldwide in the oil and gas industry by providing offshore platforms and floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels. SMOE selected SmartPlant Foundation as the integration hub for its SmartMarine Enterprise engineering applications used for its offshore platform projects.
SmartPlant Foundation is the ISO15926 compliant information management solution within SmartMarine Enterprise, an integrated solutions suite that provides full design, construction, materials and engineering data management capabilities needed for the creation, safe operation and maintenance, and as such supports the capital Project Life cycle Management (cPLM) of large-scale process, power, marine and offshore projects.
SmartPlant Foundation’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, ships, or offshore vessels. The solution permits electronic management of all project, plant and marine engineering information, integrating data on the physical asset, work processes, and regulatory and safety imperatives to facilitate enhanced global decision support capabilities.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power and Marine president, said, “SMOE’s selection of SmartPlant Foundation is an important milestone for Intergraph, as it signifies our 400th customer and a growth rate that has doubled in the past two years. The acceptance of this solution has been phenomenal and clearly validates its value as a data-centric solution to manage the design, modification, upgrades and refurbishment of onshore as well as offshore assets.”
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 according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013.
