Mark - Offshore Wind Technician

hello, my name is Mark, and I am active as a Wind Technician or, as I call myself: Offshore Wind Turbine Technician for Oceanwide. As a technician in the wind, you are engaged in challenging, diverse and adventurous work, and working with the latest techniques and equipment makes it challenging. I have not always been active as a Wind Technician, which applies to every colleague I know. I came here because I have been active for years as an electrician for entirely different activities. But with my experience in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, I switched to the wind sector a few years ago.

I ended up in this profession through Oceanwide. I was looking for something new, and I was asked if this didn't suit me. At first, I wasn't quite sure if this worked for me, especially since I also have a mild form of fear of heights. But I can tell you that I've gotten over this by now; luckily, I'm adventurous. I still had quite a lot to learn in my early days, despite the experience I already had as an electrician and mechanic. For example, I had to deal with new mechanical tools with which I was not familiar. As a result of extensive training and the help of colleagues, I have mastered the profession.

I think you should have the following qualities:

  • You are a Technician at heart
  • Stress resistant
  • Adventurous minded
  • Extends to work in breakdown services or rotational services
  • You think in solutions, not obstacles
  • Eager to learn and stay up to date with the latest techniques.

I find the profession so challenging because no day is the same. For example, on one day, you are busy checking safety by, among other things, checking bolts and nuts, and on other days you are, for example, busy replacing parts that keep the turbines running. Besides that, I like the work. I think the job is in an essential and meaningful industry that helps everyone in their energy needs. The chance to make the world a little greener is important to me.

Therefore, offshore wind is very diverse for me, you keep learning, and you are working with the latest technologies. It is crucial that you are adventurous and have a no-stress mentality. For me, it is the best job ever, and I am happy that I have become active in the Wind Energy sector on behalf of Oceanwide.
