Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Company Limited (DSME) has selected Intergraph® SmartPlant® Enterprise solutions for operations and maintenance data handover of the INPEX Ichthys LNG Project in Australia.
INPEX, operator of the Ichthys LNG Project, had chosen Korea-based DSME to construct a giant floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel worth approximately US$2 billion. INPEX specified the use of SmartPlant Enterprise solutions across all engineering disciplines for this project. As a result, DSME will implement Intergraph technology enterprise-wide, including SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Reference Data and Standard Database, for the engineering, procurement, manufacturing and construction of the FPSO.
The integrated suite of SmartPlant Enterprise solutions ensures consistency between design tools and enables DSME to provide accurate, high-quality engineering data to INPEX. SmartPlant Enterprise will also help to facilitate the data handover process for smoother operations and maintenance when the vessel is delivered to the operator.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “INPEX and DSME’s selection of our technology is validation of Intergraph’s leadership position in the oil and gas industry, particularly in Asia-Pacific. The implementation of SmartPlant Enterprise for the Ichthys FPSO will deliver increased safety, quality and productivity to this complex project.”
