Metso’s valve business and Hexagon’s PPM division will collaborate to improve project data exchange efficiency for engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) projects.
The agreement, which enables an interface with Hexagon's Intergraph Smart® Instrumentation, adds to Metso's digital tools for its valve business's project data.
The collaboration is intended to create better value in data exchange and lower EPC project costs.
Oscar Bronsveld, responsible for global project sales at Metso’s valve business area, said: “The majority of our EPC customers use the Smart Instrumentation software suite. Our target is that together with Hexagon we can bring value during procurement, and eventually also in the execution phase for the EPCs by saving them precious engineering hours in data exchange and creation of the project deliverables such as instrument specifications.”
In the first phase, Metso’s digital tool for project quotations will provide digital data exchange capability with EPCs, allowing more efficient processing of EPC inquiries and project quotations.
