Oil company Nynas AB signs agreement with Intergraph® to use SmartPlant® Enterprise solutions that covers all its plants and projects worldwide
Special oil product producer extends the benefits of quality design, data engineering generation plant asset management
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., March 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Sweden-based Nynas AB, a world-leading producer of specialty oil products, has signed a general agreement with Intergraph(®) for the use of the SmartPlant(®) Enterprise suite of solutions in all its plants and projects worldwide. Nynas, which is investing in an expansion of its Nynashamn refinery to be ready by 2020 and plans to expand its assets in Germany, wants to ensure that the proven benefits in quality design, plant asset management and creation and review of engineering data, can be enjoyed in all its operations and projects.
In 2008, Nynas chose SmartPlant Enterprise for its expansion project since it offers a complete solution from start to finish. The company undertook a phased approach to software, starting with SmartPlant Foundation and SmartPlant P&ID and is now taking advantage of the assets created during engineering. In a structured manner, the company receives accurate and complete plant information in terms of data and documents from the suppliers. This is accomplished by means of an integrated information management system. In addition, the company is now using SmartPlant 3D to design the new facilities and assets.
“Intergraph solutions help us keep our plant information readily available and accessible for all personnel from a single source of truth,” said Peter Eriksson, Nynas technical manager. “It enables us to improve our information management and handover as well as manage revisions more effectively. It is the tool of the future, ensuring a safer and more efficient way of working.”
Over the years, Nynas has invested in advanced tools to handle checklists, certificates, documents and data, improving plant operations and maintenance. Now, Nynas expects to gain even higher performance levels and efficiency by deploying SmartPlant Foundation as its document and data platform.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “Intergraph and Nynas have built a solid and profound relationship, and we are proud to be Nynas’ partner in increasing safety, quality and productivity. ”
Intergraph’s SmartPlant Enterprise offers a powerful portfolio of industry-leading, best-in-class design and data management solutions, enabling companies in the process, power, and marine industries to capture integrated engineering knowledge at the enterprise level for the competitive advantage needed in today’s and tomorrow’s market. SmartPlant Enterprise solutions enable proven productivity gains, improving engineering efficiency by up to 30 percent. This is why the majority of plants built worldwide are designed using Intergraph solutions.
