Cepsa (Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A.U.), one of the leading Spanish energy companies, has expanded the use of Intergraph® Process, Power & Marine solutions to enhance overall engineering design integrity and quality. The newly implemented solutions include Intergraph Smart® 3D, Intergraph SmartPlant® P&ID and Intergraph SmartPlant Electrical, as well as analysis tools PV Elite®, CAESAR II® and Intergraph TANK™.

Cepsa chose to increase the use of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine solutions primarily because of the ability to leverage real-time concurrent design, ensuring integrity and accurateness of engineering design throughout the engineering workflow. In addition, the interoperability between analysis and design solutions helps Cepsa to drive efficiency and minimize errors between different project steps.

With over 85 years of experience in energy markets, Cepsa is Spain’s fourth-largest industrial group in terms of revenue. With the implementation of a full suite of Intergraph solutions, Cepsa aims to further improve industrial plant design productivity as well as information flow between design and analysis solutions.

Commenting on the decision to expand the use of Intergraph Process, Power & Marine to improve information management workflows, Patricia Chacon Sangines, Cepsa’s piping department lead, said, "We are very pleased to see how successful our first implementation of Intergraph PP&M’s intelligent design solutions have been.
