Hyundai Engineering Implements Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise Solutions for UAE Integrated Gas Development Project
Next-generation 3D design and engineering information management software boosts productivity, increases safety, and accelerates projects16 November 2010
Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd. (HEC) has implemented Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise for its work on the Integrated Gas Development (IGD) project in Abu Dhabi, UAE. The nearly US $9 billion project will significantly boost the Emirate’s offshore gas production to one billion cubic feet per day and is currently midway through its estimated 2013 completion.
For its role in the Habshan 5 complex offsite facilities at the IGD project, HEC used SmartPlant 3D for the engineering design and SmartPlant Foundation for data and document management. The Habshan 5 complex project entails the construction of the utilities and offsite facilities to support the increase of processing capacity for natural gas liquids.
SmartPlant 3D is the industry’s most advanced and productive next-generation 3D design system for the process and power industries including automated design capabilities. Customers using SmartPlant 3D gain 25- to 35-percent initial increases in productivity, and HEC has been able to more quickly meet the Habshan project schedules using the Intergraph software.
The rules-based design software also helps users to build safety into plants early in the design process, enforcing regulation and engineering standards to increase safety, productivity and quality of operations. SmartPlant 3D’s rules-based design capabilities aid too in the compliance with many of the world’s industry and safety standards organizations bodies.
Once the Habshan 5 complex is completed, HEC will use Intergraph’s SmartPlant Foundation data management solution to ensure the smooth handover of project data to the owner operator andenable it to manage millions of design data components over the lifecycle of the plant asset.
“As a longtime Intergraph SmartPlant solutions customer, we have had proven and dependable results on our previous projects,” said Myung-Su Han, general manager for the Technology & Innovation Development Office at HEC. “Now having experienced the increased productivity and accelerated project progress with SmartPlant 3D on the Habshan complex, we look forward to expanding its use on our future projects.”
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power and Marine president, said, “HEC is one of the leading EPCs in the world and is well respected in the industries it serves. Its adoption of SmartPlant 3D in addition to the expanded use of Intergraph solutions for one of the world’s largest oil and gas projects underscores the value these solutions bring our customers and their clients.”
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 and for the oil and gas industry according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013
