What kind of projects are you working on now?
I have continued as a senior design engineer for Norwegian projects and, when time allows, I also support the sales team. At the moment, I’m working on a 66 kV substation project, where the switchgear and control equipment need replacing. Another project we have in the pipeline is based on VEO’s modular substation solution, so the scope varies. Every project requires several site visits, so I also get to see quite a lot of the country.
Would you recommend the expat life to others?
Definitely! Working in another country through your own organisation is a fantastic opportunity. You don’t have to start from scratch – the job is already there, and the local colleagues help you with anything you need. So, if anyone is thinking about going – just do it!
