“Basic-level projects typically take from two to eight months, but some projects can take up to 5–6 years – even longer. Right now I am working with a really fast schedule plant delivery project where we start from scratch – even though the extended basic engineering has already been done. We start from the specification of all the devices and work our way through to delivering all the units to the customer and providing them with detailed documentation,” Henri reveals.
Personally, Henri enjoys both types of projects, but his heart is more set on complex delivery projects, where he can apply his expertise and push his talents to the limit.
“I enjoy working on the details. You have to think about the positioning of every single bolt and nut, every hose and electric wire – you just have to understand and manage the whole process. It's all about paying attention to the smallest details.”
