In which area do you work at Ramboll and what are your responsibilities?I work as Lead Consultant in Offshore Wind Project Development & Advisory. As a team we develop large offshore wind projects together with our clients - from A-Z. The tasks are very diverse and include project management and direct contact with the client. My team is currently working for the largest offshore wind project on the US East Coast, Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind. As an US American working and living in Europe, it makes me quite proud to support such a ground-breaking project in the US.
What makes working for Ramboll special to you?
Ramboll is well-known as one of the key consultancies in offshore wind having contributed to the foundation design of over 60% of all offshore windfarms globally. Ramboll was one of the pioneers in the sector and created an impressive knowledge base for wind farm development and operation. The sector matured tremendously in the last decade – and so did the clients. It’s not only about engineering anymore we also bring in the needed commercial excellence.My team is working very closely with the clients – often starting even before the dedicated development areas are auctioned off. We are supporting with early-phase development, market-entry strategies as well as technical and financial due diligence. We are literally shaping our future by enabling the green energy transition.
What are your goals? What would you like to achieve with your team?
We are currently experiencing significant growth in the offshore wind market worldwide. And Ramboll is very much a part of this development! For our team, this also means constant growth, getting new colleagues on board who contribute with different expertise. Our team is truly global which enables us to be close to the local markets which also benefits our clients. Over the next decade more than 200 GW of new offshore wind capacity will be installed. And Ramboll is ready to support – along the whole value chain. It is simply amazing to be part of that journey.
