We take up the role as general contractor in almost all of our operational areas. We carry the overall responsibility for a project. In plant construction this usually means we are the EPC Contractor managing the engineering, sourcing and construction of a plant. This also includes setting-up operations and handing off the turnkey installation to the customer.
A key part of project management is unerring risk management. A friendly, cooperative relationship with the customer, suppliers and funding partners based on transparency and trust is essential here. An instrument we use daily in technical and commercial project management is multi-tiered risk management. Apart from the quality and credit assessment of sub-contractors and suppliers, this also comprises a range of internal inspection processes, one of them being contract reviews.
