Boyd van der Plas has extensive projects experience, mainly as a lead contract manager, developing and managing contracts, and as a lead claim manager, preparing and managing claims. He has also been active as project manager in the closing phase of projects to secure parties complete their work scope and not retire early. The projects he was involved in covered diverse areas: capital goods innovation, conventional power, tank storage, civil construction, and offshore wind, including the maintenance of plants. As a consequence, he is familiar with diverse contract standards, such as FIDIC and LOGIC, and has a deep understanding of the content of contracts.
For Boyd, a contract is not a template but a tailor-made comprehension of the responsibilities, rights and liabilities of parties working in a project to secure success of the project, both at big picture and detailed level.
“We are responsible for the environment that future generations will live in. The transition from old style fossil energy to cleaner and renewable energy sources and energy savings are a necessity for a more sustainable environment. I wish to contribute to this transition on an entrepreneurial basis. As of October 2015 I have been working with BLIX in offshore wind projects and shared their enthusiasm and passion in getting things done better and fast. I am keen to expand my working with the BLIX team in energy transition projects, onshore or offshore.”
