Chemical

The relentless global demand to expand the capacity for chemicals and raw feedstocks used in the production of products spanning all industries places even greater demands on the design and construction of larger, more complex chemical plants worldwide. The importance of bringing new plants online more quickly is a major challenge to both plant owners and engineering companies, necessitating continued reductions in project schedules while extending the levels of design integrity, innovation, and design quality.

As the leading supplier of 3D plant design solutions to the chemical industry for more than 25 years, Intergraph's latest 3D modeling and visualization applications continue to support all key aspects of project execution for the chemical industry, from conceptual plant design, through detailed design and construction, into plant operations and maintenance. Some of the world's leading chemical companies such as Dow Chemicals and BASF, together with EPC companies directly involved in chemical plant design and construction, have used Intergraph plant design software for major chemical plant installations over the past two decades.

Consumer Goods

As the global economy continues to increase, fueled by increased spending in the consumer market, so too does the need to increase the capacity and extend production facilities. Intergraph's plant design solutions have been used as an integral part of the planning, design, and construction of major manufacturing facilities worldwide by the leading consumer goods manufacturers using Intergraph's fully integrated SmartPlant® 3D plant design and SmartPlant Review visualization applications. New manufacturing facilities may now be quickly optimized using the powerful plant layout and design tools within SmartPlant 3D. Companies using Intergraph's plant design solutions include Procter & Gamble to support major manufacturing plant facilities' design and construction for the past three decades.

Marine, Offshore & Shipbuilding

Oil and gas production in the offshore industry is still at very high levels. More complex developments in shipbuilding are being awarded. The demands to extract and process oil and gas from new oil fields offshore has led to a major shift in the technologies chosen for the design and operation of floating production facilities used to both extract and process crude oil and natural gas products. With all of these projects, space is a major constraint, so configuring the process in as small an area as possible is critical to success. Intergraph Smart™ 3D is a ship design software that provides a next-generation, fully integrated design and manufacturing environment to support the design of both conventional offshore platforms (fixed, jackups, SSBs, drillships, TLPs, and spars) as well as FPSO, floating LNG, and other marine vessels. Smart 3D can efficiently process the dense and complex structural and outfitting designs that meet industry requirements.

At ship and offshore yards, assembling, lifting, and moving around big blocks and modules requires many activities that have to be planned mostly in advance to avoid costly idle time during fabrication and to ensure workers safety on the shop floor. There are hundreds of documents and drawings that have to be prepared in order to instruct the crews on the right operating sequence to accomplish their job in the most safe and productive way.

Smart 3D LPM provides a comprehensive set of tools and functionalities to be used on top of the 3D model design to prepare all the necessary deliverables to be used at the yard for assemblies and blocks painting, scaffolding installation and removal, lifting lugs positioning, cranes configuration and much more.

Smart 3D LPM can import several different formats of CAD 3D models, and for this reason it’s a great tool for the production engineering office at the yard, independently by the 3D CAD systems that is used by the design office

Metals & Mining

Processing plants for major mining operations are large and complex. The amount of data required to design, procure, and construct such facilities can be massive. During the capital project, large volumes of engineering data are created, together with all of the drawings and documentation required to construct the facility. Intergraph Smart™3D is a data-centric solution that was designed to create, manage, and organize all of this information, generate detailed deliverables, and then make that data easily accessible to the relevant people.

Transportation of ores represents a major cost for mining owners and are the arteries of the entire operation. The Smart 3D material handling environment (MHE) is unique to the industry and allows detailed fabrication and visualization of conveyor systems, which are key transportation systems for a mining facility. These bulk material handling systems can then be added as digital assets to the overall facility for better quality control, visualization, and cost control.
Most companies today that are doing design of materials handling systems use MCAD or other CAD to piece together these material handling systems, but when done outside of the intelligent 3D environment, they lose their value as digital assets that can be managed by the overall system. Smart 3D solves this critical problem within the industry.

Nuclear & Power Generation
The supply of power for industrial and domestic use is placing increasing pressures on electricity generation capacity, resulting in major investment in new power generation plants worldwide. SmartPlant 3D's multi-discipline intelligent plant modeling environment is ideally suited for the design and construction of both conventional power generation plants, as well as being used on the latest generation of nuclear reactors designed by leading nuclear reactor designers such as Candu Energy, Westinghouse, Siemens, General Electric, and Hitachi.
Oil & Gas

There is a relentless global push to expand plants needed to process oil and gas. This places even greater demands on the design and construction of larger, more complex oil and gas plants worldwide. The importance of bringing new refineries and gas processing plants online more quickly is a major challenge to both plant owners and engineering companies, necessitating continued reductions in project schedules while extending the level of design integrity, innovation, and design quality. As the leading supplier of 3D plant design solutions to the oil and gas industry for more than 25 years, Intergraph's latest 3D modeling and visualization applications continue to support all key aspects of project execution for the oil and gas industry, from conceptual plant design, through detailed design and construction, into plant operations and maintenance. Some of the world's leading EPC companies involved in the design and construction of oil and gas facilities, such as Fluor, Bechtel, and Foster Wheeler, have used Intergraph plant design software for major oil and gas plant installations over the past two decades.

Pharmaceutical

As the healthcare and medical industry expands to support increasing demands to improve the health of communities, together with advances in the pharmaceutical industry to offer new drugs, Intergraph's plant design and visualization applications continue to support key aspects of project execution for the pharmaceutical industry, from conceptual plant design through detailed design and construction, into plant operations and maintenance. Some of the world's leading EPC companies involved in the design and construction of pharmaceutical plants, such as Jacobs and Project Management Group, as well as pharmaceutical companies such as Bayer and Eli Lilly, have chosen Intergraph plant design software for major pharmaceutical projects for the past two decades.
