“I have been at the frontlines of the wind industry for 15 years, leading the charge in the US and watching the industry mature year after year. We’re still at the early stages in the US and there seems to be a bit of disconnect in terms of what needs to be done. Politically, it’s driven by the green transition but we need to be equally driven by the economic side for the transition to actually become real.

It’s our job to help customers be where they need to be in order to help achieve sustainability from both a green and a commercial perspective. Working with tool solutions, it’s really important to me that we always consider how we can add real value for our customers. We have to analyze how we can bring down costs and complexity across the lifecycle of a tool – every chance we get. Essentially, our job is to help lower overall service costs and enable smarter solutions.

What we can do is create real standardization by drawing on the knowledge and skills of our entire organization. With standardization, the industry can rely less on subsidies and I believe this will help ensure the long-term success of the wind industry. If you use standardized tools that require the same competencies, then everyone lowers their costs. It becomes easier to train people, you raise safety significantly, and you make it easier to produce and procure specific tools.

For me, being part of the green transition means to build excitement around the wind industry. Looking at carbon energy, volatility has been very high. It’s very much driven by people making fantastic money and then all of the sudden, they have no jobs. Wind offers consistency and as people begin to see that, the industry is becoming more attractive.

A platform for impact

Danhydra has given me a platform to build great teams and impact people, the community, and the industry. That matters a lot to me. I have worked for Danish owned companies for 15 years, and I think we can really learn something from their approach to work life balance. Combine that with a challenger mindset, and I think we’re really on to something.

We need to move fast though, and we need to continue challenging the industry. The way I see it, you have to rock the boat when the boat needs rocking. We’re at a point with the global energy crisis where every moment matters. The sooner we act, the better the impact – even if we’re just small cog in a much bigger wheel house.
