Our Site Managers are entrusted to lead the construction of our BESS Projects to achieve successful completion meeting by exceeding the expectations of all stakeholders. They are the “Captain / Parent” on site who always represents Fluence, protecting and keeping the Project site safe from harm by anticipating risks but also new opportunities. They are always making and changing action plans, constantly communicating with our Customer and Contractors, with continuous follow up on execution to ensure that the most important actions are concluded every day and as soon as possible. When the project experiences issues and challenges (such as the Pandemic, Accidents, delays in construction work), they are physically, mentally, and emotionally present to provide reassurance, confidence, clarity and control. As the “Captain” they locally represent Fluence with key external stakeholders such as the local contractors, local government officials, suppliers, and others.
