Key Staff Profile
Mr. Cobbina has MSc. Broadband and Mobile Communication Networks from the University of Kent, UK and BSc. In Computer Science from East London College, UK. He has a vast experience in nanotechnology/ photonics, optical and wireless communication systems. His experience in project management and problem solving brings him to the forefront of construction in Ghana.
He has a great ability in the management of engineering projects within time and budget. He is the founder of Mericom Construction Ghana Limited and has since the formation of this Company steered it from its humble beginning to its present status.
Mr.Kutsienyo has a Post-Graduate Diploma in Management Information Systems and Bachelor of Arts in Sociology. Until recently Mr. Kutsienyo was part of the team streamlining Information Technology Hardware solutions at Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) in Tema. He is experienced in Information Technology Configuration, Troubleshooting, Installation and Implementation. He is a co-founder of Mericom Construction Ghana Limited.
Mr. Reeskamp is a very experienced Project director, Project Manager and senior Engineer in the field of civil and maritime infrastructure. He used to be the head of Ports, Waterways and Coastal Development group of DHV. He has a large national but also a large international expertise in ports, maritime and civil infrastructure. His main expertise lies in coastal and maritime works such as harbour design and planning, harbour works such as quays, dams, breakwaters, jetties and infrastructure etc. In these fields he has extensive experience in studies, design, making of contract documents, contracting of works and in the construction phase.
A large part of the projects he has been involved in are complex multidisciplinary projects. Besides the technical expertise these projects often involve economical and architectural fields of expertise. Based on his experience with complex multi-disciplinary projects, he gives courses on the subject of risk management. He is an active PIANC member and is part of the Dutch Water-Front committee dealing with maritime and water related projects including research and development in and of these fields. He is also a Member of the Royal Institute of Engineers in the Netherlands (KIVI).
Alex Capel received in 2002 his MSc degree in Civil Engineering at the Delft University of Technology. He specialised in hydraulic and coastal engineering. Alex Capel gained a wide international experience in the design of coastal structures like rubble mound breakwaters and quay walls. Furthermore he acted as a specialist in several dike and levee safety projects in the Netherlands. Alex developed skills in numerical modelling for ports and marina’s in relation to wave design conditions and morphology processes. Also the application of specialised computer software to define ship responses when berthed and optimisations to mooring layouts for Oil tankers and LPG/LNG vessels is one of his expertises.
Alex Capel currently acts as senior project manager for several international clients, who ask for physical modelling and numerical modelling studies within their projects. He is also the programme manager of the Coastal and River Structures Programme within Deltares’ Delta Infrastructure Theme. He develops new knowledge related to coastal structures within the R&D projects.
These projects involve amongst others:
- Rubble mound breakwater and rock revetments
- Scour protections
- Cost-optimisation and Risk Control in Designing
- Physical modelling of Approach Channel Refraction Processes
- Block revetments
- Wave overtopping reduction of Coastal Structures
Mr. A.P. Luijendijk has a wide experience in various disciplines of coastal engineering. As a project manager and team member, he participated in various projects related to hydrodynamics (waves, currents), coastal morphology (sediment transports, coastal impact, and scour) and coastal infrastructure (ports, groins, and breakwaters).
Mr. Luijendijk gained experience in working with advanced numerical modelling techniques in the field of tides, sediment transport, density driven flows, waves and wave-current interaction. His present role is as senior advisor in consultancy projects regarding hydrodynamics, waves and morphology.
Mr. Luijendijk is coordinator of the Coastal Engineering market team and related research topics. Such coastal engineering R&D projects include studies on the numerical modeling on aggregated time- and spatial scales, seamless modelling methods, input schematization reduction techniques, and uncertainty quantification methods. Countries of work experience are Angola, Cote d’Ivoire, Guinea, Guyana, Jordan, Netherlands, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, United States and European Union. In 2013, Mr. Luijendijk started his research with the STW programme Nature Coast focused on the Sand Engine pilot experiment. His research focus is on the physical feasibility of mega-nourishment concepts worldwide. In parallel he started his PhD research on seamless modelling for coastal morphological modelling.
Sampson is a competent hydraulic engineer/hydrologist with more than 13 years successful field experience in drainage, hydro geometry, bathymetry studies, groundwater modelling, hydrological reporting and analysis.
Excellent in surface and groundwater modelling test and data analysis, ensuring efficient level of drainage and sewerage works, carrying out work area inspections to ensure fulfillment with approved designs and agreed goals, coordinating with geotechnical contractors for quality assurance and quality control.
Sampson has MSc. Water Resources Engineering from KNUST, Ghana, and MSc. Engineering Project Management from Coventry University, UK.
Samuel is a Certified Member of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana (ICAG) and a holder of MBA in Finance. Samuel is an enthusiastic professional with an overall working experience of Eleven (12) years.
He is a certified IFC Trainer and has headed various companies in Ghana rising to a Group Finance Manager in the process for one of the group of companies he has managed. He is also a project coordinator who has handled various projects including the New Takoradi coastal protection works. He has an eye for accuracy and timing in execution of projects.
