Puma Energy selects Intergraph’s intelligent 3D plant design and modelling solution

Puma Energy selected Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional, an
intelligent 3D plant design and modelling solution to help deliver a landmark
fuel import terminal in Queensland, Australia. Puma Energy is the fuels
retailing arm of Swiss-based commodities trader, Trafigura.

Having entered the Australian market in 2011 to supply fuel to the
country’s mining industry, Puma Energy identified the need to build its own
fuel import terminal in Mackay, Queensland to support its planned activities in
addition to strengthening competition and supply in Australia’s fuel market.

Puma Energy selected the AutoCAD-based CADWorx Plant Professional from
Intergraph for its ability to complete a full model of the terminal, complete
with all piping, structures, cable ladder, pipe supports and equipment, using a
single Intergraph solution.

Michelle Guiney, Puma Energy’s design manager said she was very impressed
by CADWorx Plant Professional’s ease-of-use and ability to produce deliverables
quickly and accurately. Based on the positive experience with the Mackay fuel
import terminal, Puma Energy intends to use the CADWorx solution to drive
efficiency and accuracy on a number of upcoming projects within Australia. It
also plans to standardise all future greenfield and brownfield projects
globally on CADWorx solutions.

Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President, Gerhard Sallinger explained
that the Mackay fuel import terminal project was a significant one for the
Australian oil and gas industry, given that one of its primary goals was to
strengthen competition and supply in the market. Intergraph is proud of CADWorx
Plant Professional’s role in helping to deliver the project.
