Severstal Project, a general engineering design contractor for PJSC Severstal, successfully executes 3D design projects by using Intergraph Smart® 3D by Hexagon PPM. Severstal Project has also extended its use of Hexagon PPM solutions to further improve the in-house 3D design capabilities and project execution efficiency. The purchased solutions include Smart 3D, SmartPlant® Review and SmartPlant Interop Publisher. Severstal Project executes complex projects across Russia and needed a software solution to enable real-time collaboration, automated clash detection, and to ensure design integrity from design phase to construction. Smart 3D's real-time concurrent design and interoperability capabilities were key to Severstal Project's decision to choose Hexagon PPM solutions. In the future, Severstal Project aims to use Smart 3D as the enterprise-wide environment for 3D modeling applications. Currently, Smart 3D is used for important projects such as reconstruction projects for blast furnaces and other projects executed for PJSC Severstal, one of the leading Russian metallurgical companies. Commenting on the decision to use Hexagon PPM solutions, Severstal Project's general director, Krasushkin Yuri Vladimirovich, said, "Intergraph Smart 3D has enabled us to bring our engineering design to the next level. As a truly data-centric solution, it enables clash detection already during the design phase and brings us the competitive edge we have needed."Mattias Stenberg, Hexagon PPM president, said, "We are glad to see yet another real-life example of how the data-centric 3D modeling can maximize project communication and efficiency through real-time concurrent design. Working together with industry leaders, such as Severstal Project, helps us to further improve our solutions." Intergraph Smart 3D is a next generation, data-centric, and rule-driven solution and is specifically designed to deliver mission-critical requirements. Breaking through barriers imposed by traditional technologies to enable a truly iterative design environment, Smart 3D provides a competitive edge to EPCs and owner operators alike.
