‘Working in the offshore wind sector was not a deliberate choice, but I am really enjoying it. Offshore wind is a relatively new sector and things are developing rapidly. There are still many things to be discovered, such as the best way to construct a large wind farm miles from the coast. This presents a challenge. I would therefore certainly recommend the offshore wind sector to young engineers. You are involved in future developments, the energy transition to renewable energy, and you are therefore doing something to help society in the long term.’
‘Van Oord is an enterprising company that is not afraid to opt for a certain direction, to invest and to really go for it. That is how the company started in the offshore wind sector and the department is still expanding. If you are not quite sure of what you want, you can follow a traineeship at Van Oord and try out various disciplines, such as engineering and operations. You can also change direction at a later stage; there is room for manoeuvre. You do not need to leave after two or three years, there are career opportunities within the company.’
