A project leader in the marine new construction department at Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore in China, Kevin Wang is deeply immersed in the future of alternative fuels.
Please describe your job as a Project Leader for Marine New Construction.
I supervise multi-disciplinary teams in the inspection of various types of marine vessel projects under construction. My team manages all in-hand projects at yard, and supports clients in organizing the development of their projects, assuring a smooth transition from planning, to construction, to sea trials.
What challenges do you face in your day-to-day work?
Vessel construction is a high-pressure phase, and one of my regular challenges is assuring peace of mind for asset owners and shipyards. When challenges arise, project leaders must use their knowledge of new construction projects, experience in the industry and top-notch communications skills to provide equal service to shipyard and owner.
