ISU Chemical Selects Intergraph® to Optimize Management of Plant Technical Data

SmartPlant® Enterprise solutions chosen to improve operational efficiency and safety through data quality for Korean petrochemical manufacturer

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 21, 2017

Korean petrochemical company ISU Chemical Co., Ltd (ISU Chemical) has selected four Intergraph® solutions to optimize the management of technical data quality on its Onsan and Ulsan plant sites.

ISU Chemical will deploy the suite of new technology – Intergraph Smart® 3D, SmartPlant® P&ID, SmartPlant Review and SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators – in two phases by mid-2018. Phase one will involve laser scanning of the Onsan plant, using the Hexagon Leica ScanStation P30 to produce high-quality 3D “as built” data, as well as  piping and instrumentation (P&ID) conversion, 3D modelling and legacy data cleansing. Once this process is complete, the as built data will be loaded into a new SmartPlant-based data management system. Phase two will see this process repeated at the Ulsan plant.

“Intergraph’s solutions will improve the safe and efficient operation and maintenance of our facilities, as all up-to-date engineering data will be accessible and managed through a centralized SmartPlant-based system,” said Dongmin Kim, technical officer at ISU System, the system integrator division of ISU Chemical. “Additionally, we anticipate these solutions will help us to reduce field project work hours through the automatic generation of deliverables.”

Mattias Stenberg, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “We are proud Intergraph’s solutions will be used to help ISU Chemical realize the benefits of optimized engineering data management, which include improved data quality and operational efficiency.”

Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise offers a powerful portfolio of industry-leading, best-in-class design and data management solutions, enabling companies in the process, power, and marine industries to capture integrated engineering knowledge at the enterprise level for the competitive advantage needed in today’s and tomorrow’s market. SmartPlant Enterprise’s integrated suite of solutions enable proven productivity gains, improving engineering efficiency by up to 30 percent. This is why the majority of plants built worldwide are designed using Intergraph solutions.
