I started at TWD as an intern in 2013. TWD is a sponsor of the LAGA rowing society where I was a
member, so I was already familiar with TWD as a company. When I was looking for an internship during my Msc Civil Engineering, I applied at TWD.
Within two years I became a Project Engineer. A Project Engineer at TWD will manage various projects. I played a central role in the entire project cycle and was directly responsible for the accurate execution of the projects. During a project I was always looking for pragmatic solutions for complex and immediate problems. The first project that I took on as a Project Engineer was the HSD deployment frame for the Wikinger OWF in 2015.
After 6 years since my first start in TWD, I had been promoted to Engineering Manager at TWD. This means I’m responsible, together with a fellow Engineering Manager, for the entire discipline of Mechanical Engineering. Being an Engineering Manager, I now have a wide range of tasks. Any given workday might include sketching, brainstorming, calculating, planning, budgeting, supervision of Designers and Engineers, and client- or site visits. Furthermore, I am also responsible for the coaching and training of the Engineers and Designers.
What I like most about working at TWD is the hands-on mentality, the alternation between short and longer projects, the steep learning curve, and working with so many different nationalities.
Looking at the future, I hope I will be able to design more large mechanical constructions that can make installation of offshore wind farms, or constructions in other markets, more efficient.
