Background

Finch Hatton has been established in 2006 by Pieter van Dijke. Pieter is best characterized as an unconventional man, born and grown up in the Netherlands, who doesn’t like a status quo but is fascinated by opportunities and possibilities. Mostly structured and sometimes even impatient he likes to visualise where the organisation and its people should be going in the long term and strives to capture that both efficiently and effectively. For this man concrete decisions are more important than just discussing matters. He make decisions on an objective impersonal basis but always in an open and sociable manner.

Education

His education starts with Mechanical Engineering at the Institute of Technology Vlissingen, followed by International Technological Development Studies at the University of Technology Eindhoven, all in the Netherlands. For his Master's thesis he executes a research project in Tanzania, for the Energy Utility TANESCO, and traverses this enormous country to look into the future possibilities for Mini Hydro Power Plants.

Professional Experience

Pieter's career starts in 1997 with four succesful years in projects & production management at ALCOA, the ALuminium COoperation of America. In 2002 he shifts to the world of Renewable Energy as Business Developer for Offshore & Onshore Wind Energy. Since 2006 he works as an independent Project Developer and Construction manager in an international network. His first project in renewables is the first Dutch Offshore Windpark Egmond aan Zee, as project developer and later on as construction manager. In the years after many other onshore and offshore windparks will follow.

Currently he works together with other professionals, both in the Netherlands and Tanzania, East Africa. All committed to take care of your interests in the fields of business development, tendering & contracting as well as project management during the constrution and implementation phase.
