Decades of expertise in meeting schedules and budgets

Capabilities Project Management

Effective project management is a strong core competency of BFL, and one of the secrets of our success.


Turnkey solutions for every need

Our approach is not derived from a scientific methodology—it’s based on decades of real-world experience and BFL’s fundamental belief of delivering maximum value for our customers’ money.


Simply put, we believe that coordinated action coupled with on-target results translates into a better product and better service, at the market’s most competitive price.


Our people make the biggest impact on our project management expertise. BFL’s experienced project managers are a tight-knit group of highly creative, extremely motivated, focused professionals. Each project is handled by a cross-functional team of engineers and led by a seasoned project manager. Working together, we handle every single aspect of the project, from the time a project is awarded until we turn over a complete power plant, according to schedule. We recognize that retaining high levels of control across the entire development timeline is paramount to success.



Why we win
In order to deliver what we promise, BFL recruits the right people and provides rigorous training on an ongoing basis. Leveraging our direct experience, our collaborators’ offices in Europe, and seminars and workshops held by independent bodies worldwide, we stay abreast of trends and the latest best practices.


Finally, we provide the necessary tools, ranging from the latest in project management software, to an ideological flexibility that empowers our project managers make decisions that settle a customer’s difficulties instantly. The sum of these parts is a customer focus, extraordinary project management expertise, and hydropower technology edge that cannot be matched by enormous organizations.
