Successful project logistics is based on rigorous, detailed planning, attention to detail, superior execution and hands-on control.
DIRECTOR – ENGINEERING DIVISION
Hendrik Wagner heads up BDP Project Logistics’ Engineering Division. Located in Leipzig, Germany, the unit provides professional route surveys, method statements and infrastructure-related structural engineering calculations, as well as technical methods for lifting and positioning heavy-lift equipment.
The dedicated division makes BDP Project Logistics one of very few project forwarding companies able to offer in-house engineering solutions to increasingly complex infrastructure problems.
Wagner brings nearly 20 years of experience to BDP Project Logistics, most recently as senior project engineer and branch office manager for the Setzpfandt Group, a structural and civil engineering firm where he worked with BDP on a major chemical plant expansion project in Germany. He has also worked as an independent bridge surveyor and inspector. Wagner holds a degree in civil engineering from Bauhaus-University Weimar.
Larsen & Toubro
Larsen & Toubro were undertaking a new development project on Saadiyat Island. Saadiyat Island is a 27-square-kilometer natural island—half the size of Bermuda—and lies only 500 meters offshore of Abu Dhabi, the United Arab Emirates’ capital city. The island can be reached by road and sea. Normal cargo and truckloads not exceeding 90 tons can be driven to the island without any problems. Access by sea—a distance of 12 nautical miles—is very challenging: there are only three jetties, designed for small passenger ships and for small barges, tugs, etc., but no cargo movements have taken place before.
