  1. What’s your role at RPC?

I’m Construction Project Manager for PV Projects. Currently I work preparing the technical, tendering and contractual documents for the subcontractor bidding processes, until we start the first construction PV Project.  I also give Technical PV Assistance to Engineering, Procurement and Development Departments.

  1. What’s a typical working day for you?

I start the working day with a quick review of the status of my planning and pending tasks to start working on the technical specifications, PV contract frameworks and opportunities, to be able to work quickly and efficient with providers when it is needed to launch a new RFQ for the project opportunities.

I also work on demand with other departments as a PV Expert they can draw on.


What have you found during your time at RPC?

I am lucky to work in a company where the management give general guidelines instead of tracking everyday work, looking for long term objectives.

Also, at RPC the working environment is great, with frequent team building events across the year including an international event.

What’s your proudest career moment?

My proudest moment at RPC is yet to come, it will be the energization of our first PV Plant that I’ve overseen as project manager.

I like to do gravel and mountain biking with my weekends, swimming in summer and researching in the winter

Where’s your favourite place in Europe?

My favourite place in Europe is Corsica.
