South Korea-based KEPCO Engineering & Construction (KEPCO E&C) has selected Intergraph's suite of SmartPlant Enterprise solutions for the engineering design of nuclear power plants.

As per the deal, KEPCO E&C will use Intergraph’s SmartPlant 3D, SmartPlant Foundation, SmartPlant Review, SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Electrical and SmartSketch solutions.

KEPCO E&C is planning to implement the Intergraph system to several nuclear power plant projects.

The SmartPlant Enterprise will allow KEPCO E&C to integrate with other tools and systems for change management and reduce construction rework at its nuclear power projects.

Intergraph said SmartPlant Enterprise’s suite of solutions allow productivity gains and improve engineering efficiency by about 30%.

Intergraph process, power and marine president Gerhard Sallinger said, "We are pleased to partner with KEPCO E&C, and we will work closely with the Korean EPC to support its international nuclear power plant projects for enhanced safety, quality and productivity."
