Hexagon Leica TruView Integrator for SmartPlant Enterprise

‘Game changing’ status claimed for bridge between laser scans and plant data management.

Stockholm, Sweden headquartered engineering and geospatial software house Hexagon is claiming ‘game-changing’ status for a new mapping/data capture solution for owner operators. Hexagon has integrated Intergraph’s SmartPlant asset management software with Leica Geosystems’ TruView laser scanning technology extending its usefulness from its traditional ‘as-built’ role to ongoing operations and maintenance and revamp activities.

Leica TruView integrator for SmartPlant provides photorealistic laser scans of plant information and documentation to inspection and maintenance operators. Offline mobile device support brings these representations of assets to field workers.

Ludwig Englmaier, head of engineering with AlzChem AG observed, ‘Plant workers performing inspection and maintenance activities spend too much time locating the items they need in the plant. Smart Plant mobile, along with photorealistic TruView visualisation will help our operators carry out their work faster and safer.’ More from Hexagon.
