Mercury rises for Intergraph package

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.

Intergraph CADWorx Plant Professional is aimed at helping Mercury Engineering deliver intricate pipework and the 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 for 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, a 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.
