Mercury Engineering Selects Intergraph® CADWorx® for Creating Deliverables for one of the Largest and Most Modern Semiconductor Facilities
The EPC valued the tool’s accuracy for isometric drawings, the system consistency and the options to build data relations
HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Mercury Engineering, an international EPC company, has purchased more than 100 licenses of Intergraph(®) CADWorx(®) 2013 Plant Professional and maintenance. The company selected CADWorx software to create its project deliverables for the next generation of faster and more powerful microchips being developed.
Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional will help Mercury Engineering deliver intricate pipework and the highly complex user defined components that are required for clean room technology. Total accuracy is essential for the tens of thousands of isometric drawings required for fabrication. Due to space limitations, and the need of extreme accuracy, the pipework will be shop fabricated and then erected on site where it will need to fit first time to avoid expensive field-fit rework. CADWorx Plant Professional will also be used to deliver heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) fabrication drawings.
Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional was Mercury Engineering’s preferred solution over market competitors. A key element in CADWorx selection was the inclusion of Alias ISOGEN(®), the world’s leading solution for total automation of piping isometric drawing production, and particularly the tool’s ability to handle field welds. CADWorx database links were also important as Mercury Engineering intends to import and export data to link with its existing procurement infrastructure.
Gerhard Sallinger, Intergraph Process, Power & Marine President, said, “I am very pleased that Mercury saw value in our solutions for them and their customers, in their decision to implement CADWorx 2013 Plant Professional. The win is also important from a regional perspective as it will certainly open up further opportunities. This is a significant strategic gain for Intergraph and will strongly establish the global involvement of CADWorx in clean room design.”
Because CADWorx models are AutoCAD(®) based, they offer unparalleled flexibility and collaboration capabilities. Intergraph CADWorx has powerful and intuitive structural steel and equipment modelling functionality, incorporated to provide the most complete plant design solution available. Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional includes the most complete range of tools for efficient plant design. CADWorx Plant Professional allows for quick and easy creation of fully intelligent 3D plant models
The ARC Advisory Group, a leading industry analyst firm, ranked Intergraph as the No. 1 overall worldwide provider of engineering design solutions for industry according to its “Engineering Design Tools for Industry and Infrastructure Worldwide Outlook Market Analysis and Forecast Through 2016.”
