Petrochemical firm integrates Intergraph and Leica’s solutions

Huntsville, US: PTT Maintenance and Engineering Company Limited (PTTME) – a engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services subsidiary of PTT Global Chemical Public Company Ltd. (PTTGC), implemented a combination of Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise and Leica Geosystems laser scanning solutions for the operations and maintenance of its existing plants.

PTTME chose to standardise on SmartPlant Enterprise (including SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant Layout, SmartPlant Review, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Reference Data, Standard Database for SmartPlant Reference Data and SmartSketch, as well as Intergraph CADWorx & Analysis products such as CADWorx, CAESAR II, PV Elite and Tank) as its integrated engineering platform for all projects. PTTME also implemented SmartPlant Enterprise for Owner Operators (SPO) to capture and maintain plant information for the various plants that PTTGC owns and operates.

With the addition of Leica Geosystems ScanStation laser scanner and associated software solutions, PTTME will be able to capture current as-built data from PTTGC’s legacy plants. The data will then be integrated into SmartPlant Enterprise environment, enabling PTTME engineers to capture and maintain the geometric dimensional information of existing facilities. This will greatly facilitate the operations and maintenance of PTTGC’s plants, with all engineering information managed through PTTME’s centralised SPO system. With the integration of laser scan data, the EPC firm will also be able to work on the captured as-built 3D model in SmartPlant 3D for any changes to both brownfield and greenfield projects. PTTME will use the SmartPlant Enterprise suite and Leica Geosystems laser scanning solutions enterprise-wide for all engineering projects, with Intergraph’s partner, Neon Infotech Southeast Asia Company Limited (Neon Infotech), continuing to provide dedicated local distributor support.

“We have established the comprehensive SmartPlant Enterprise portfolio as our engineering standard and it has delivered enhanced safety, quality and productivity for our engineering projects,” said Somsak Keerativutisate, managing director of PTTME. “We have full confidence in Intergraph technology and we decided to expand our use of SmartPlant Enterprise with the integration of Leica Geosystems laser scanning solutions for our plant operations and maintenance. This will give us an integrated view of our facilities and will enable us to take the next step in making our plant information management processes even more efficient and intelligent.”

“By improving the internal availability of high-definition surveying capabilities, PTTME demonstrates a commitment and ability to capture current conditions, as well as dynamic updates to a constantly changing and complex 3D plant environment,” added Juergen Dold, president of Leica Geosystems. “All of this now made possible through the use of our leading 3D scanning solution, the ScanStation C10 with integrated survey, scanning and imaging capabilities.”

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “PTTME’s decision to integrate Leica Geosystems laser scanning solutions with the Intergraph SmartPlant Enterprise suite for PTTGC plants is testament to the synergy between Hexagon companies, with Intergraph technology working in perfect tandem with fellow Hexagon company’s solutions. This also reinforces Intergraph’s leadership position with owner operators in the industry, with the Leica Geosystems offering further strengthening our integrated portfolio of solutions across the entire plant life cycle.”
