ANKER’s project execution systems and tools are used at all global offices to maintain consistency in the delivery of each project. Knowledge On-line is a repository and forum that allows employees to access information and technical experts to solve problems from any location around the world.

All of ANKER's projects are managed in accordance with the general requirements of the company’s Operating System Requirements (OSR), ANKER’s quality document that outlines how projects are managed to ensure successful delivery.


Projects OnLine is part of the ANKER suite of tools.

ANKER uses Projects OnLine, a project collaboration and document management tool for engineering, procurement and construction management services projects. ANKER’s project execution solutions are a set of highly integrated processes used across all phases of a typical EPC and maintenance project. The solutions are enabled by a solid, data-centric foundation that enables multi-office and multi-party execution and rule-based automation.

Using the Sustainable Project Delivery process, ANKER works with our customers to:

Bridge the gap between our customers’ commitments to stakeholders and project delivery
Identify and manage the full suite of business risks that may impact our customers’ projects and operations
Ensure projects are aligned to our customers’ corporate sustainability goals, and;
Support decision making when trade-offs exist between technical, social, environmental and financial performance

During early project alignment we work with our customers to identify their corporate and project goals, non-technical risks and stakeholder commitments. Our integrated engineering, estimating and non-technical specialist teams then identify opportunities that help achieve our customers’ goals, manage their risks and address their commitments. We then work with our customers to implement profitable and sustainable opportunities and communicate improved performance metrics.


Typical achievements include:

Waste and emissions reduction, increased production efficiencies, energy and water savings, reduced environmental and social impacts within operations and improved stakeholder relationships. This process helps our customers realize their sustainability goals, enhance their social license to operate and demonstrate tangible value to their shareholders.

Through our proprietary project delivery systems we integrate sustainability enhancing systems, tools and expertise into our customers’ projects, enhancing project risk management and converting their sustainability objectives into profitable project outcomes.
