Backed by an 85+ year history of operating within the Asia Pacific region, Wood is proud of its longstanding partnerships, underpinned by our proven ability to optimise asset performance, drive capital efficiency and deliver for our customers.
Wood has been present in the Caspian region for over 20 years. We combine our strong knowledge of the area, global expertise across the entire asset life cycle and experience required to operate successfully in the harsh and complex environment of the world’s largest land-locked body of water.
The Middle East is a key growth area for Wood. We have maintained a presence in the region for over 7 decades; helping design, build, operate, maintain, and modify some of the world’s largest and complex facilities.
Wood is strategically located throughout Latin America and the Caribbean in a variety of sectors including oil and gas, refining, chemicals, water, mining, energy, industrial plants and facilities and communications.
Helping cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges that are a growing part of the 21st century
Wood is a partner of 100 Resilient Cities (100RC) – pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation to give urban centres around the world access to groundbreaking tools allowing them to better plan for potentially destructive weather events.
In collaboration with 100RC, Wood is able to harness meteorological data to provide 100RC member cities with highly detailed forecasts on extreme weather patterns and the impacts they will have on localised infrastructure. The forecasting technology will empower cities to prepare comprehensive plans in advance of oncoming tropical storms, blizzards and other dangerous natural events. With this data, cities will be able to accurately discern which roads will be most impacted in the event of a massive snowstorm or which bridges require additional reinforcement to survive a powerful hurricane.
Wood is one of 100RC’s network of Platform Partners – a group of specialised organisations from the public, private and non-profit sectors that provides critical tools and services to make 100RC member cities better at adapting to the shocks and stresses of our world and transforming them into opportunities for growth.
Wood can also help 100RC member cities to develop critical materials for resilience building projects, such as detailed infrastructure project designs and environmental impact assessments.
Through the 100RC Network, cities partnering with Wood can also benefit from:
Tactical action plans for resilience implementation and grant applications
Partnering with 100RC harnesses Wood's worldwide expertise in sustainability, emergency management, weather forecasting, environment and infrastructure to enhance cities’ capacities to thrive when experiencing the shocks and stresses of ongoing changes to our global environment.
