I am an international Electrical, Instrumentation and Control Engineer with successful projects in Oil/Gas, LNG, FPSO, Chemicals, Petrochemicals, Manufacturing and Waste Water treatment. As the lead Engineer, my work includes tendering, management of large teams comprising both local and contract staff, scheduling tasks for teams and personnel, liaising with local authorities and ensuring the overall project complies with safety rules. Success in large projects starts with clarity on the final goal and detailed planning to get there. All projects will face challenges. These include tight schedules, overcoming unforeseen snags, resolving staffing issues and so on. Here leadership is essential: to clarify to staff what is required, to ensure that the right people are hired, to confidently delegate work and to have sufficient experience to assess that work being delivered is of a high quality. Here I am able to draw from thirty years of experience formed from working on many different engineering projects and so have led many projects to success.
Some of my key achievements are listed below:
Control Systems: Expert in configuring DCS and SIS systems to assist with FAT and SAT compliance
DBFO: I headed the first successful Design Build Finance and Operate project in China in 2001
Drilling Platforms: E&I work on two major projects in Indonesia

Entrepreneurship: I have set up my own company and drew up an innovative engineering website and won several contracts
Floating Platform Conversions: Successful repeated conversions on very large oil tankers to floating platforms with all aspects of cabling, electrical, instrumentation and telecoms in China
