Who we are
Edwin van Doeselaar
Directeur, Project Controls Specialist (Turnaround Scheduling Expert) en Trainer/Coach
"The degree to which you are in control is the foundation for the success of your project." This statement is the base of Edwin's vital mission. Namely, the awareness among Asset Owners of the importance of Project Controls. Regardless of whether this concerns a Turnaround or EPC project.
Edwin is already active in Project Controls for years, and in particular within the Turnaround Projects. Within this, he has more and more specialized himself in de discipline Planning & Scheduling for Turnarounds within the Oil & Gas and Energy sectors.
In times when margins are coming under increasing pressure because of the erratic and unpredictable economic times in which we live, the interests are growing. The pressure on realizing targets is continuously increasing because of this, while a lot of installations are getting older en require more 'attention'. The predictability of the project, and thus the quality of Planning & Scheduling, are becoming increasingly more important. One of his main objectives is to bring the quality and additional added value of Planning & Scheduling to a 'higher level' so that the Asset Owner can execute (Turnaround) projects that are even better and more efficient. He does this on the one hand by applying Best Practices to existing and future projects to his clients, and on the other hand by training future Planning & Scheduling professionals within Advando's Academy to become fully-fledged (Turnaround) project schedulers and to coach and support them during their projects.
