Covestro, a world-leading supplier of high-tech polymer materials, has chosen Hexagon’s PPM Division as a technology partner to facilitate the digitalization of the engineering and operations landscape. To achieve this, the company purchased Hexagon’s 2D/3D design tools and information management solutions, as well as construction and supply chain management products. 

Covestro has identified several challenges related to its existing asset documentation management, such as duplicated data entry, delayed information exchange between engineering disciplines, manual work efforts, as well as insufficient possibilities for data analysis, thereby increasing costs. By digitalizing its asset information, which will be one of the steps toward becoming a fully digital enterprise, Covestro expects to overcome these challenges and realize multiple benefits across all lifecycle stages. 

Covestro selected Hexagon as its technology partner because of the next-generation information management offering that enables integration with design tools and easy access to accurate and up-to-date plant documentation. In addition, many of its engineering, procurement and construction (EPC)companies use Hexagon technologies in their daily work.

Hexagon solutions will be used in a selection of Covestro’s current engineering projects and in the maintenance and operations work in the future as a part of the digitalization program for engineering, operations and maintenance activities, “OSI2020” (Optimized System Integration).

Stephan Krebber, program director for digitalization of production & technology, OSI2020, said, “Our OSI2020 program aims to implement digitalized plant operations by 2020. We chose Hexagon PPM as one of our digital transformation partners for the IPEP (integrated plant design and engineering platform) project to help us to digitalize our work processes and assetinformation.”  

Mattias Stenberg, President, Hexagon’s PPM division, said, “We at Hexagon are honored to become a digital transformation partner for Covestro and are certain that together we will realize the benefits of digitalized plant operation.”
