She led the pilot project from its first stages of various technologies assessment all the way to commissioning and year-long monitoring, including: 1) Presenting different business case scenarios and convincing senior management, shareholders and the tender board to adopt the project. 2) Leading all contracting and other parts of the project until first solar steam was produced. 3) Leading the monitoring period until technology was proven; provided consultancy to the team working on deployment. This project that was completed in collaboration with GlassPoint Solar, a global company with expertise in an innovative solar technology that was optimised for EOR, was completed on time and on budget and met all the targets set at the start of the pilot.
