I have an informal communication style, and enjoy working with people from board room to shop floor to ensure my designs and projects are successful.
I enjoy complex problems that require collaborative, cross-functional teams to drive economic, practical solutions. Some examples of these are:
- refurbishment of a 93 MW Cooling Tower
- fault finding complex hydraulic systems
- admin and reporting of ERP systems
- risk assessment and controls for high hazard Steel making equipment
- fabrication and installation of refractory lined structures
- Collaboration / team work
- Interpersonal skills
- Logical thinking
- Problem solving
- Concept development
- Industrial design
- Engineering calculations
- Project engineering
- Project management
- Commissioning support
- Heavy industry
- Oil & Gas
- Pressure vessels
- Production equipment
