Hydrogenics Chooses Intergraph® SmartPlant® P&ID for Enhanced Data Exchange

Hydrogenics Europe NV, a worldwide leader in designing, manufacturing, building and installing industrial and commercial hydrogen systems around the globe, has chosen Intergraph® SmartPlant® P&ID to improve efficiency and quality of their engineering data. The deal included an unprecedented customised interface between Intergraph SmartPlant P&ID and Hydrogenic’s existing ERP system.

The customised interface allows all engineering data captured in SmartPlant P&ID to be stored in the ERP system, making it available for all departments in the company. The key benefits include improved efficiency and enhanced data quality, as the possibility of human error is removed by data automation. Efficiency is enhanced as the centralised access to engineering information reduces time needed for locating information in separate systems.

Hydrogenics searched for a solution provider to enable the company to provide more reliable documentation to their customers in a standardised manner.

Discussing the decision to implement Intergraph SmartPlant P&ID, Hydrogenics technical director Jan Vaes said: "We are pleased with our decision, and expect to improve the quality of our documentation with less effort than before with SmartPlant P&ID and the customised interface with our ERP system.

"The implementation of Intergraph software allows us to keep all our information in one place and available to all departments. This allows us to tailor our installations and documentation packages to our customers’ needs, keeping focus on safety and quality while simplifying document control."

Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president Gerhard Sallinger said: "The innovative way SmartPlant P&ID is implemented at Hydrogenics shows just how crucial data quality and access is for improving efficiency. We are proud to work together with our clients to discover new ways for them to succeed in this competitive economical environment."

Intergraph SmartPlant P&ID is the number one asset-centric, rule-driven P&ID solution in the global market and has created more than 200,000 P&IDs for plants from around the world. It helps users to develop and manage their P&IDs with a focus on the plant asset rather than the documentation representation, and can be leveraged into downstream tasks such as SmartPlant Process Safety, Intergraph Smart™ 3D, and SmartPlant Instrumentation. This accurately reflects the as-built plant for enhanced safety, quality, efficiency and productivity.
