About us.

Our promise. 
How do you bring a complex turnaround to a successful conclusion? Advando shows you the way. As a partner in Project Control we help asset owners to achieve their goals. With targeted consultancy, solutions and professionals. And a clear promise: zero delay.


“The degree to which you are 'In Control' is the basis for the success of your project”.

Edwin van Doeselaar CTO, Project Controls Specialist 

Our history

The pressure on achieving targets has increased in recent years. So has the complexity of laws and regulations. The predictability of a turnaround is therefore becoming increasingly important. This is evident: more than two thirds of all turnaround projects get out of hand. So there is much to gain. Especially through knowledge assurance and high-quality Planning & Scheduling.

That's why Edwin van Doeselaar founded Advando in 2011. He wanted to use his 20+ years of Project Control experience to do things differently. To bring structural improvement to turnaround projects. We now have a dedicated team working for global players in Energy and Oil & Gas. Together we achieve sustainable results, so they can focus more on their core business.


Our culture

Advando is by and for practitioners. People who make the difference in every turnaround - and want to do it smarter and smarter. We love our profession and we take it to the next level. We do this by continuing to develop our talents and by sharing knowledge with each other. Getting closer and closer to zero delay is what gives us energy.
