A Turnkey Power Project
An international power leader needed high level expertise to execute multiple power distribution projects in Saudi Arabia. The assignment was handled by an expert executive interim CEO from India.
A major international power corporation had been awarded multi‐million dollar power distribution projects in Saudi Arabia across multiple locations. The projects were in disarray, with significant delays affecting profitability and eroding customer confidence. The company urgently needed to take control and accelerate the projects.
This assignment was handled jointly between the WIL Group’s France and India offices. The WIL Group provided a very senior and highly qualified CEO from India. The WIL Group’s executive interim leader reviewed existing project management processes and set new timelines with a system of internal project controls. He provided leadership to multi-national projects teams with a special focus on adhering to group health and safety norms across sites, contractor and supplier management and cost monitoring.
Rigorous monitoring and project controls started showing improved results within the first six months. A sense of ownership grew among the Project Managers across multiple project sites. Client relationships improved as the team became more responsive. The Client issued completion certificates at the end of the engagement.
