Ramboll, a global provider of engineering, design and operational support services in the oil and gas, energy, environment and transportation industries, has standardized on Intergraph SmartMarine® Enterprise for all of its onshore and offshore oil and gas projects.
Ramboll chose SmartMarine Enterprise to bring more integration to the company’s intelligent engineering design applications, providing a common and agile project delivery environment to improve the management of data exchange through all project phases. The standardization entails integration of several Intergraph tools, including Intergraph Smart™ 3D, SmartPlant® Reference Data, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID and SmartPlant Electrical.
Ramboll is striving to achieve higher data integration levels within its engineering activities in line with their SPODE (Single Point of Data Entry) strategy. Its aim is for more intelligent work processes, to reduce errors and administration tasks, higher data reuse, reduced costs, shorter time schedules and improved efficiency for its customers. Working with SmartMarine Enterprise allows the engineering service provider to enjoy greater connectivity, better communication and improved coordination, which ultimately translates into more effective work processes.
“The integrated engineering environment that SmartMarine Enterprise offers enables us to work more intelligently. Intergraph’s solutions merge nicely with our growth plans and strategies for the future and will help us getting ahead start in the market,” said Nigel John Michaels, CAD Systems Manager at Ramboll Oil & Gas. “The next phase of our implementation plan focuses on deploying the tools worldwide and fine tune them in our global workflows.”
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, “Intergraph’s long-standing collaboration with Ramboll has allowed them to standardize on a common environment. The result is improved efficiency and lower costs in project schedules without compromising quality. Intergraph understands the challenges engineering service providers face nowadays and we remain committed to support their activities and respond to their needs.”
