What at you currently working on?

Now I am working with acquiring and planning all interior outfitting job packages for Vår Energi. Also involved in the initiation work of the job packages. For me, the most important thing is being continuously in contact with the industry and the customers’ network.

What I find exciting about the job is that there are different solutions and challenges to be solved, all in accordance with the customer’s requirements.

What project are you working on and how is it going?

Currently, I am working with the HAP Balder project after a long period of planning and building up the time recording system for Vår Energi.

What dreams do you have?

My dreams are that we are awarded a contract with Equinor within Architect and Interior Outfitting. There is an endless backlog of maintenance. And that we have a strengthened department to complete this.

And that the Architect department can be handed over to some younger forces, and I, myself can be ISO Manager on an offshore installation the last years of my professional life. Have experienced to work as ISO Manager stand-in several times.
