What is your role at Parkwind?
As a project coordinator, I manage the planning of projects to make sure they’re on time, highlight risks of delays, and assess the impact of different events on projects’ schedules. I also work on setting the structure of managing interfaces in projects - the points of contact among project parties.
What is special about your team?
What’s special about my team is the diversity. I am coming from a civil engineering background, and I work with colleagues who have financial, legal, and technical expertise. As a team, we work on different projects, yet we usually gather on timely basis to share our ongoing work and challenges. We’re always motivated to get the best out of all different perspectives while making our decisions and solving problems.
Do you see yourself staying at Parkwind?
Challenges and learning opportunities make it interesting to be at Parkwind. It is very special by bringing learning and development opportunities to the people. I give an example about project coordination: we don’t only follow a standard approach, but we continuously assess such standard practice and keep improving towards reaching the most robust coordination approach that best fits different projects. Also, young professionals are highly encouraged to participate in different challenging exercises.
What makes your work challenging?
It is about coordinating the planning and managing interfaces among different parties in different projects which are usually located in different parts of the world. Applying best practices of coordination in different contexts and adapting to best fit specific environments remain challenging yet so interesting.
How do you support Parkwind’s mission of advancing wind energy?
Parkwind’s mission is to make offshore wind energy affordable and available to people. The fact that I participate in controlling projects to be on time and coordinate among parties to deliver the work makes me happy since the outcome isn’t just about finishing a project, it’s about creating green energy for the world.
