The Infrastructure Sector growth strategy has two primary themes, namely:
- support our growth in the Resource sectors via the provision of enabling capabilities
- to position within the Economic Infrastructure sectors of the future
We do this by focusing on those elements that cross over both the Resource and Economic infrastructure markets, namely; Power, Water, Ports and Rail.
It is the enabling capabilities, such as environmental approvals management, social stakeholder engagement, geosciences, master planning and early-works logistics management that often set the overall timeline of major resource developments.
It is in this early phase that the Infrastructure Sector creates value for our resource customers in managing the technical and non-technical risks that can, if mismanaged, so drastically affect the outcome of their projects.
Economic infrastructure of the future
Our focus is on national critical infrastructure components of Power, Water, Ports and Rail. WorleyParsons has the skills required to support the implementation of the economic infrastructure of the future.
By way of example, WorleyParsons is currently working on some of the world’s largest renewable power projects, including wind farms (300MW Lake Turkana, Kenya), solar thermal towers (50MW Khi, South Africa, pictured below) and a photovoltaic plant (450MW Blythe Project, California).
