SCHWARTZ HAUTMONT, SPAIN Key Facts Company: Schwartz Hautmont Website: Description: Schwartz Hautmont is a private Spanish corporation established in 1963 in Tarragona, Spain. The company offers a wide range of products and related services. Security, quality, reliability, on-time delivery and cost competitiveness have made Schwartz Hautmont an internationally leading company in its sector. Industry: Pressure vessels, steel structures and modular construction Country: Spain Products Used: • Intergraph Spoolgen ® Key Benefits: • 40% lead time reduction in piping production • 10% time reduction in piping production • 30% less indirect staff required • 60% time reduction in document management and quality control SCHWARTZ HAUTMONT ENHANCES EFFICIENCY AND PRODUCTIVITY WITH HEXAGON PPM SOLUTIONS IDENTIFYING GOALS Schwartz Hautmont (SH), a leading company in steel construction was contracted to work on an Advanced Hydrocracker Project for one of the leading global oil and gas companies. Once ready, the unit will upgrade heavier hydrocarbon by-products into cleaner, higher value finished products. SH oversaw the delivery of the modular units to the refinery. The scope of the project included prefabrication, erection and testing of all the mechanical, piping, equipment, steel structure, instrumentation and electrical work on the modules, that were later shipped from SH 's Tarragona facility to Rotterdam. One of the key goals of the project was to deliver all the units on time, without any unfinished work to ensure that no extra labor would be needed on-site during the assembly. In addition, SH wanted to implement a paperless approach to document and information management for the spool and welding process with an advanced level of automation to provide real-time and error free documentation of good quality. OVERCOMING CHALLENGES Schwartz Hautmont wanted to digitalize the document management of the following disciplines during the project, including: steel structures, piping, material certificates, nondestructive testing (NDT) reports, coating and welding traceability, among others. To do this, the company decided to interface Hexagon PPM's Intergraph Spoolgen ® with its in-house SH Pipenet software. Spoolgen was chosen for the project because of its scalability for a larger project in a client server environment, the ability to customize the software based on Schwartz Hautmont's needs, and the compatibility with the client's 3D suite (another Hexagon PPM software, Intergraph Smart ® 3D).
