French term or phrase: pilote exploitant
Does anyone know what the meaning of 'pilote exploitant'?

I don't really have any context as this was in a table, but I think it might be an engineering job title, as there was a name in the next column.

The term appears in a technical specification

Explanation:
Not easy without more to go on, but large contracts often require a pilote to coordinate the work done by various parties. This person is often an external consultant, but here it looks as if it is someone from within the Client's ranks, assuming exploitant, being presumably the operator of the steel works, is also the Employer/Client of the contract.
