Intergraph introduced SmartPlant Enterprise Power Solution (KKS-Enabled), a preconfigured solution template for designers and operators of power generating plants to optimize the design and construction, safe and reliable operation, and life cycle management of the engineering design basis for handover and regulatory compliance.
SmartPlant Enterprise Power Solution builds on the proven and widely used SmartPlant Enterprise solutions suite with features tailored to the needs of the power industry, such as out-of-the-box configuration for KKS (Kraftwerk Kennzeichen System) plant classification convention and specification-driven integration between SmartPlant P&ID and SmartPlant Reference Data. Customers benefit from an accelerated implementation because of the preconfigured KKS asset naming convention and plant classification structure, ready-made application integration, as well as early and accurate materials estimation capabilities.
Intergraph has introduced the newest solution of its SmartPlant Enterprise engineering software suite, SmartPlant 3D Materials Handling Edition, to automate the design and modeling of bulk materials handling systems for the mining, port, power, pulp and paper industries.
A next-generation, data-centric, rule-driven solution, SmartPlant 3D Materials Handling Edition automates the design of conveyor systems and transfer chutes to enable bulk materials industries to rapidly and easily create or expand facilities.
