IESA Selects Intergraph Solutions to Build Up to Eight Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading Vessels; Sisgraph to provide major Brazilian engineering and construction company with training and support for project.

 

Brazilian engineering company IESA has selected Intergraph SmartMarine and SmartPlant Enterprise solutions, provided by Sisgraph, as part of a project with Petrobras, one of the world's largest energy companies. IESA will supply Petrobras with 24 compression modules for six identical floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels, with an option for delivery of eight modules to the other two FPSOs.

 

Sao Paulo, Brazil-based Sisgraph has been a provider of Intergraph solutions in South America for more than 30 years. The scope of the project consists of the design and fabrication of eight CO2 compression modules, eight gas compression exportation modules and eight injection modules. These vessels will be used as reference models for the other units that will be constructed for the pre-salt projects in Santos Basin, Brazil. 

 

IESA will be using Intergraph enterprise engineering software for the construction of the new facility, including SmartMarine 3D, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical, SmartPlant Review and SmartPlant Spoolgen. Sisgraph also will provide training and on-site support for the project.

 

Alexandre Curvello, automation coordinator at IESA, said, "By using the Intergraph technology solutions provided by Sisgraph, we expect to reduce project time and also to have a better technical consistency of the project, even by having on-site technical support."

 

Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine president, said, "IESA's choice of Intergraph software solutions on a project of this magnitude underscores the value these next-generation solutions offer our customers and their clients. The choice also reinforces Intergraph's leadership in two important sectors: the local Brazilian market and the global oil and gas industry."

 

Intergraph's SmartMarine Enterprise suite is the world's most advanced, integrated offshore and shipbuilding solution, driving improvements in design efficiency, production schedule, handover, and overall life-cycle cost control for enhanced global competitiveness. Intergraph is a world leader in marine structure design and data management, with SmartMarine Enterprise endorsed and used by the world's leading offshore and marine companies, including the most productive shipyard, the top offshore owner operator, the top fabrication yard, and the top classification society in the world.
