Siddhartha Saha

Siddhartha has been working in the petroleum downstream sector for more than eighteen years. He started his career as a refinery process engineer in 2002, and has been with Axens India since 2009. He has worked in process design, technical services and sales before taking up the current position.

Mai Phuong DO
Managing Director
Axens South East Asia
Mai Phuong Do

I first joined Axens in 2004 as a Process Engineer. Over the years, prior to my current position, I have enjoyed the different experience as Project Manager for Biofuel Technology, Technology Manager for conversion technology for the worldwide market, and finally Technology Advisor for the Asia Pacific region. Having close contact with clients by providing support and solution to them and contributing to the professional network in the industry to address technology challenges, transformation, and to prepare energy transition are my main sources of motivation and satisfaction throughout those work positions. 

As Managing Director for Axens Regional Operations Centers in Malaysia, my main objective is to ensure Axens’ growth in the region while providing a high standard and motivating work ambiance for all our employees so that they will be able to have the same work satisfaction as I am.

Cyril Collado
Group Manager, Technical Services
Axens India

Cyril is the focal point of all requests for technical assistance from the twenty plus refining and petrochemical industrial sites in India. With a single-minded focus on customer satisfaction, apart from managing and deploying his team of seasoned experts, Cyril makes it a point to devote a good share of his time working at sites himself, shoulder to shoulder with refinery engineers - tackling start-up of grass-root units, replacements of catalysts or discussing performances.  

Cyril started his career in 1999 with the R&D department of Axens’ Parent Company IFPEN, in Paris. In 2005, he moved to Axens technical services department and participated in various grass root and revamp commissioning projects. Before moving to India in 2018, Cyril was in Axens’ South East Asia subsidiary, responsible for hydrotreatment and hydroconversion units in the Asia-Pacific area.

Yew-Hong LAI
Project Manager
Axens South East Asia

I have been working for Axens SEA since 2014 and ever since, enjoyed overcoming the challenges encountered throughout the many projects involved, dealing with various customers from different regions across the globe. By solving problems arose during the projects, I gained substantial knowledge and priceless experience.

Having delivered these projects successfully, I consider such job satisfaction not easily found elsewhere and has always motivated me to continue striving for more in the years to come in the company.
