Tony Cato

Master, Bold Tern

With over two decades at sea under his belt, ten of which have been in command, Tony is the Captain of Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s purpose built jack-up vessel Bold Tern. As Captain, Tony has responsibility for the safety of the vessel, the crew and cargo on-board.

To date, Tony’s highlight at Fred. Olsen Windcarrier has been command of Brave Tern during the installation of the first U.S. offshore wind farm. It was the first transatlantic crossing for a wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) and was loaded with five GE nacelles. The passage across was meticulously planned and perfectly executed. The voyage lasted 16 days, travelling over 3,800 nautical miles with plenty of sunny weather off the Azores and Bermuda.

Tony enjoys working on board Fred. Olsen Windcarrier’s vessels because they have great facilities including a full gymnasium which he uses on his downtime to prepare for Total Warrior events.

Tony holds an Unlimited Master Mariner’s Certificate of Competency issued by the UK Maritime and Coastguard Agency and has a background working on global trading tankers for Shell, before moving into renewables.

“It’s fantastic watching the evolution of the offshore wind industry, each step forward brings new challenges and keeps my role diverse and exciting.”

Alexandra Koefoed

Senior Project Manager

As a project manager, Alexandra expects the unexpected and thrives on working with clients to find solutions to issues – technical, logistical or otherwise. An Ocean Engineering graduate, she started with Fred. Olsen Windcarrier in 2014, coming from a renewables technology development role within Fred. Olsen Limited, which she joined in 2010 from the oil & gas sector. Her move into renewables was a conscious choice, her objective being to make a personal contribution, if only in a small way, at a time climate change was slowly hitting headlines and awareness was growing about the need to do things differently. She is motivated by the fact it is a young industry and there is still a lot to achieve, her next big task being to head the Fred. Olsen Windcarrier scope for the 350MW Wikinger Offshore Wind farm.

 

“Being a Project Manager requires flexibility, a people focus and the ability to overcome challenges – being able to thrive when under pressure helps too.”

Axel Wullf Wathne

Engineer

Axel is a relative newcomer to Fred. Olsen Windcarrier, having arrived at the company in January 2015 from the engineering consultancy side. He has specialised in marine and harbour structures and has a particular geotechnical competence. He gets involved in projects early, contributing to tenders, and then as the project responsible engineer, typically for the planning phase and throughout the offshore campaign, when he is responsible for the engineering team’s deliverables to each specific project. His remit includes determining the fastening and lifting requirements, ensuring vessel stability as well as ballast and jack-up feasibility. He feels a lot of individual ownership with each project, taking responsibility and enjoying a freedom with the company, where he is encouraged to look at different or more efficient approaches for clients.

“Here in Windcarrier the environment is to make things work better, so innovation and creativity are encouraged and if we see opportunities we should chase them.”
