Arie Overduin Senior Mechanical Engineer

Professional Overview:

Arie comes to Ingenia with 30 years of combined experience in Australia and his country of origin, The Netherlands. Arie holds a Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and specializes in both design and project management scopes in mining and water.

With specialist knowledge in GRE/GRP fibreglass tanks, equipment and pipelines, he brings a wealth of knowledge to the team. He has seen some serious action in these industries, being involved in projects like e.g. Santos GLNG (Central QLD), BHP Olympic Dam (Regional SA), NCIG Coal Terminal (Newcastle, NSW) and the Adelaide Desalination Plant (Lonsdale, SA).

Enjoying taking a fundamental approach and asking basic questions has regularly led Arie to come up with new and inventive solutions. A number of provisional patent applications regarding mechanical and hydraulic driveline solutions have been the result of this approach. Combined with a drive and passion to deliver high quality outcomes this translates most often in substantial added value to a project.
