State Nuclear Electric Power Planning Design and Research Institute Selects Intergraph® SmartPlant® Foundation

State Nuclear Electric Power Planning Design and Research Institute (SNPDRI) based in Beijing, China, has chosen Intergraph® SmartPlant® Foundation and other SmartPlant Enterprise solutions to manage engineering data for its AP1000™ project.

As a subsidiary of State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation (SNPTC), SNPDRI sought a standard engineering database to easily share engineering data within the organisation and with SNPTC. SNPDRI chose Intergraph’s SmartPlant Foundation because it is the world’s most proven, industry-standard engineering information management solution in the process, power and marine industries.

SmartPlant Foundation is the ‘e-Engineering integration hub’ for SmartPlant Enterprise and will enable SNPDRI to manage its data more efficiently and ensure that valid, consistent and high-quality engineering data is shared between applications and users when and where they need it. SmartPlant Foundation, along with other solutions from the SmartPlant Enterprise suite, will be implemented company-wide across all of SNPDRI’s worldwide projects.

SmartPlant Foundation is Intergraph’s total solution for plant information management and supports global collaboration between clients, contractors and suppliers. It ensures an open, independent data storage system with secure access to protect plant information for the life of the plant, and addresses all of the design, build and operation requirements of a facility throughout the entire plant lifecycle.

Designed for phased implementation by owner operators and EPCs, ISO 15926-compliant SmartPlant Foundation encompasses a plant’s design, modifications, upgrades and refurbishment, effectively managing the evolving plant configuration from front-end engineering design to plant decommissioning. It is the only product on the market today that supports such a wide scope and yet is deployable in a modular, incremental fashion, if required.

“We are pleased to have Intergraph as our technology partner to support the growth of our power plant and nuclear conventional island business globally,” said Gai Qiqing, director at SNPDRI. “SmartPlant Enterprise integrated solutions, including SmartPlant Foundation, will enhance SNPDRI’s design processes through the effective management of high-quality engineering data for all of our projects.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph’s Power, Process & Marine president, said: “Intergraph solutions are already delivering results for State Nuclear Power Technology Corporation, and we are now successfully supporting its subsidiary’s nuclear power projects. SNPDRI’s selection of Intergraph technology reinforces Intergraph’s global leadership position in the process, power and marine industries, particularly in the nuclear power generation market.”

The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analysis firm, ranked Intergraph the number one overall engineering design 3D software and process engineering tools (PET) provider worldwide according to its PET Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast through 2013.
