Huntsville, Ala., March 31, 2011 — State Nuclear Electric Power Planning Design and Research Institute based in Beijing, China, has chosen Intergraph SmartPlant Foundation and other SmartPlant Enterprise solutions to manage engineering data for its AP1000 project.
As a unit of State Nuclear Power Technology Corp., SNPDRI sought a standard engineering database to easily share engineering data within the organization and with SNPTC.
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 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.
