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.”

Kristina Pind Løvgren

Operations Manager

As Operations Manager at the Fredericia office in Denmark, Kristina has a lot of different job tasks, so two days are never the same. As an Operations Manager, she is responsible for managing the vessels in periods where the vessels are off contract. And during projects she is the deputy to the Project Manager. Kristina also supports the Project Managers in planning activities, including client visits on the vessels and in their decision making.

As Dual Officer (combined navigational officer and engineer) from SIMAC in Denmark and with a background working within the industry, Kristina joined the company in 2017 and has already worked on the Galloper and Borkum Riffgrund 2 projects. One of the things that really motivates her is that she is in close cooperation with the vessels. This means that she gets a lot of knowledge from the crew members and she uses this knowledge to facilitate and come up with new and improved ideas and routines – and thus is able to help drive and shape how vessels in the industry operate.

“It is very exciting to work in an industry that evolves in a way where clients and contractors have to constantly move closer together to make the projects come alive”

Axel Wullf Wathne

Engineer

Axel joined 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.”
