WorleyParsons engineering director corporate, Lindsay Wheeler, said: “With the ongoing strong investment in all sectors of the business and increased workshare across the globe, use of integrated design systems was essential. The Intergraph SmartPlant suite supports workshare, provides design data in a format that customers can reuse and allows more efficient design solutions with improved design integrity.”
