My Vision

Ambitious and challenging offshore installations in harsh environments have to be designed and optimized totally from an operational point of view taking into consideration the full range of determining factors, such as environmental sensitivity, operational aspects, technical possibilities, construction and investment requirements, lifecycle and operational costs.


This sounds unpretentiously simple. So why is this still a remarkable vision or philosophy?

Currently, offshore projects are mostly designed from an engineering point of view, i.e. the most reasonable engineering solution is developed. But it is essential to develop a holistic concept at a very early stage of a project. This makes it possible to formulate new offshore concepts and dramatically cuts construction and lifecycle costs. Cost reductions of up to 50% are achievable particularly for projects in ice covered waters.

offshore and arctic solutions



With more than 30 years of experience in offshore operations, engineering, science, construction and environmental issues I take care or review the entire offshore concept (operational, engineering & constructional aspects) instead of optimizing only details.


I offer a comprehensive range of integrated services providing offshore and arctic solutions to clients all over the world. Providing the best solutions by identifying and managing operational, engineering, constructional and environmental risks and liabilities, maximizing efficiency, reducing costs and achieving compliance with international standards.
