HUNTSVILLE, Ala., June 12, 2017
ACCIONA Industrial, a global leader in sustainable solutions for infrastructure and renewable energy projects, has implemented Intergraph Smart® Materials by Hexagon PPM to improve materials management globally. This next-generation materials management solution will be hosted on an Intergraph Smart Cloud environment to enhance project execution of power plant construction projects.
As a relatively new engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) company established in 2015, ACCIONA Industrial looked for a material management solution in a cloud-based environment to boost engineering information integrity and accessibility. The decision to host Intergraph Smart Materials on Smart Cloud was influenced by positive references from other key companies in the region.
Currently, Smart Materials is being utilized for the first time in a project for a thermosolar CSP (concentrating solar power) plant in South Africa. In the future, ACCIONA Industrial will use Intergraph Smart Cloud to host its corporate-wide materials management tools for all EPC projects.
Commenting on the decision to use Hexagon PPM solutions, ACCIONA Industrial’s director of construction, Javier Millarengo, said, “As we are entering a new era of EPC project execution, we strongly believe that applying the best technologies and tools available in the market, such as Hexagon PPM solutions, will provide us with better performance and improved deliverables for our clients.”
Mattias Stenberg, Hexagon PPM president, said, “Cloud-based engineering solutions are the future of EPC project execution. We are happy to support leading global companies, such as ACCIONA Industrial, to gain a competitive advantage by improving materials management and overall project execution efficiency.”
Intergraph Smart Materials is an integrated solution for life cycle material, supply chain, and subcontract management. It provides a common collaboration platform and project workbench for all partners in any engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) project supply chain. With Smart Materials Portal, users can gain a competitive advantage by having suppliers being part of the company’s supply chain environment, enabling more accurate procurement and construction planning.
The availability of the solution on Intergraph Smart Cloud supports customer objectives to reduce CAPEX/OPEX costs and shorten project schedules by enabling all parties involved – in either the design of a project or the operations and maintenance of a facility – to share an accurate and consistent view of all documents and data available.
