Saipem to Standardize on Intergraph SmartPlant Technology

SmartPlant Enterprise provides design, construction, materials and engineering data management for capital project lifecycle management

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Intergraph announces that Saipem, an engineering, procurement, project management and construction company, chose to standardize on Intergraph SmartPlant and SmartMarine Enterprise engineering solutions. The agreement includes Intergraph next-generation 3D design software Smart 3D.

Smart 3D is used for both onshore plant design, and offshore and ship design. Smart 3D is an advanced and productive next-generation 3D design system, offering numerous capabilities, including automated, rule-based design. Users can reuse FEED or old designs with different catalogs and specifications by leveraging Smart 3D's unique rule re-use, tag renaming and specification interchange. Also, enhanced 3D interoperability capabilities enable the use of 3D data from multiple foreign CAD systems in conjunction with native Smart 3D models.

SmartPlant/SmartMarine 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 lifecycle management (cPLM) of process, power, offshore and shipbuilding projects.

The ARC Advisory Group, an industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph as the No. 1 overall worldwide provider of engineering design tools for plant design according to its global market research study, "Engineering Design Tools for Plants and Infrastructure: Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2017."
