GE Healthcare, Brasil
Multinational project management from start to finish
During 2009, Rejlers received a large project management order from GE Healthcare, USA. Rejlers’ task is to be the installation manager in a state healthcare project in Sao Paulo in Brazil, for which GE Healthcare has the main responsibility. The purpose of the project is to make Brazil self-sufficient with regard to bioprocess production and development of medicines from blood plasma. GE Healthcare is responsible for process design and delivery of the main equipment, while the Brazilians themselves are responsible for construction and media.
Rejlers’ task is to coordinate the installation on site in Brazil. “One of the biggest challenges in this project is managing the different cultures involved in the project: project management from the USA, equipment supplied from Sweden, process design from a Finnish company, design and process assembly by an Argentinian company and finally contact with the end customer in Brazil and GE Healthcare’s local working group in Sao Paolo. Rejlers is very proud to have been awarded this contract for GE Healthcare in their first turnkey project in this area. I feel very confident having our own Johan Nyström on site in Brazil as project manager – he is the right person for this challenging project,” says Carl Hammarhjelm, head of Rejpro (Rejlers’ professional project management department).
