eVision strengthens local presence in Qatar

Responding to growing local demand and maintaining a continuous focus on customer satisfaction, eVision is pleased to announce the appointment of Emil Spaan as Regional Director of the Middle East and the opening of the new branch office in Doha.

Mr Spaan will expand Qatar operations during the next 6 to 12 months, moving up to 50 eVision personnel from the Netherlands to be based in Qatar full-time, as well as new hires. They will support his existing team, current clients and support expected future growth. As global leader of oil and gas operational safety solutions, eVision believes that Qatar is an excellent location due to its central location in the Middle East and incredible growth potential. Qatar is rapidly developing into a world leader when it comes to front line operational safety and Control of Work software systems.

“A local presence helps to extend the world class service our company strives to offer,” says Regional Director Emil Spaan, adding that “our solutions are only half the service we provide. With a new office in this strategic region, we can work much more closely with our customers to resolve their challenges and exceed customer expectations.”

eVision is currently implementing Permit Vision at Qatar Petroleum’s offshore operations. Besides the company’s flagship software, utilisation of ATEX-compliant mobile devices allows for an improvement in efficiency. Taking into consideration QP’s high levels of health and safety measures implemented at all locations, the software will facilitate existing COW procedures. Permit Vision will also be implemented at all Qatargas assets: Qatargas is the largest producer of liquefied natural gas in the world. Additionally, the company has opted for increased HSE performances and streamlined maintenance operations by using Isolation management, advanced conflict detection and seamless integration with SAP Plant maintenance systems.

To enable continuous growth within the region, eVision’s local experts have a wealth of knowledge and expertise to support clients in meeting their goals. “As we streamline the development in the region, we will continue to invest in helping our clients realise and achieve value.” eVision works with a unique combination of Operational Experts and best-in-class Software Developers, to deliver software that does not simply increase overall safety: it reduces costs by improving efficiency, while making the work floor a safer place.
