Engineering Company Limited (DSME) has selected Intergraph^® SmartPlant^®
Enterprise solutions for operations and maintenance data handover of the INPEX
Ichthys LNG Project in Australia.
INPEX, operator of the Ichthys LNG Project, had chosen Korea-based DSME to
construct a giant floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel,
which is worth approximately US$2 billion. INPEX specified the use of
SmartPlant Enterprise solutions across all engineering disciplines for this
project. DSME will implement Intergraph technology enterprise-wide, including
SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant Electrical,
