What’s your background in Fred. Olsen Windcarrier?
I’ve been with the company for three years. Before I came on board, I was at university in Norway studying marine technology. I originally thought this would lead me into the Oil and Gas industry, but back in 2014 there was a huge oil market crash, which made me think about exploring different options. Also, as my generation has grown up to be more environmentally conscious, it felt natural to consider opportunities in renewable energy.
Fred. Olsen Windcarrier came to my university to give a presentation, with the aim of hiring one person from my class into the company. I was very fortunate that they chose me! So, I started as a project engineer, and after two very inspiring years I was offered a place on the Maritime Trainee program, which I’m currently completing now.
