Intergraph Process, Power & Marine, the leading provider of enterprise engineering software dedicated to the process, power and marine industries, and its partner, ETAP, have offered since 2008 an electrical engineering and design tool that combines ETAP’s enterprise solution software for electrical power systems with SmartPlant® Electrical (SPEL) to provide a bi-directional interface.
The SPEL-ETAP Data Exchange Interface allows joint users to use ETAP for modeling, design, analysis and automation, and then integrate that data into SPEL to increase electrical efficiency for the construction, operation, and maintenance for the life cycle of a plant.
“The interoperability between ETAP and SPEL applications reduces design effort and enables higher design quality, increased productivity and more accurate analysis and early confirmation of requirements,” said Shervin Shokooh, chief operating officer of ETAP. “When the designed system is taken online, ETAP’s Real-Time system provides the situational intelligence needed to analyze the data, and provide actionable information and visual decision support to the owner-operators.”
