SYDNEY, Australia, Aug. 3, 2010 – PTT Chemical Public Company Limited (PTT Chemical) has selected PTT Maintenance and Engineering Company Limited (PTTME) as its service provider for engineering and maintenance services and has adopted Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO) and the SmartPlant Enterprise suite of solutions to fulfil their engineering tools, document and data management system requirements.
PTT Chemical chose PTTME as its service provider and Intergraph as its preferred technology and solution provider to realise its long-term vision of establishing an effective plant information management system across all PTT Chemical plants with local distributor support from Intergraph’s partner, Neon Infotech Southeast Asia Company Limited (Neon Infotech).
PTT Chemical, an owner operator (O/O) headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, has been utilising Intergraph software from the SmartPlant Enterprise suite of solutions to capture and maintain plant information in an as-built status. With support from the implementation team of PTTME and the adoption of SPO, PTT Chemical is now using a unique combination of O/O and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) solutions from Intergraph within the same environment to enable streamlining of information handover from projects to operations and maintenance. These solutions will be implemented by PTTME, Intergraph, and Neon Infotech consultants across PTT Chemical as a company-wide standard and will be used by multiple departments and users.
SPO is built on Intergraph’s proven, industry-leading multi-discipline engineering design and information management SmartPlant Enterprise suite of solutions. SPO will offer interoperability between SmartPlant Enterprise and other operations’ enterprise systems. This ensures that information in enterprise resource planning (ERP), reliability, process safety, digital control systems, and more is automatically maintained to reflect change in the dynamic engineering design basis.
Tom Doran, Executive Vice President, Process, Power & Marine, Asia Pacific, Intergraph said, “PTT Chemical’s selection of SPO and the SmartPlant Enterprise suite of solutions further reinforces Intergraph’s leadership position with owner operators in the industry. Intergraph’s solution will enable PTT Chemical to manage asset performance and ensure proper maintenance of information integrity across the owner operator system landscape that will be supported by the expert services provided by PTTME.”
“We are on a journey to realise our vision of establishing an integrated plant information management system across a number of PTT Chemical plants,” said Somsak Keerativutisate, Managing Director, PTTME. “With the leading solution suite from Intergraph and support from its experienced local partner, Neon Infotech, we are embarking on a mission to achieve our goals and set high standards and best practices within the region.”
