A day with colleague Yke de Veer
13 April 2018
On behalf of Vitens, Gedin coördinates the activities of SION, a joint venture between various underground cables- and pipeline companies in the Netherlands.
On behalf of Gedin, Yke de Veer works as a Combi Project Leader for the Achterhoek-Noord region.
The Combi Project Manager coordinates, on behalf of the various network companies Vitens, Liander, Reggefiber and Ziggo, works that are carried out jointly. This involves both new construction and reconstruction work where main cables, main pipes and distribution pipes are laid or modified.
The Combi Project Manager maintains contact with the initiators, such as governments, project developers or private individuals, and is their first point of contact. "From my previous job as Principal Operator for Soil Remediation, I had already gained a lot of experience in working with government agencies, contractors and consultancy firms. I also knew a lot about the ins and outs of municipalities and provinces. That experience comes in handy now. "
"Yes, I am glad that I have stepped into this role", says Yke. "I am very pleased to have projects run smoothly and well, this will be rewarded if I notice that the people involved are satisfied."< Summary
