Yvonne Zwiers- Wind Turbines Project Manager, Ørsted
I'm an offshore wind turbine project manager, so overall I'm responsible for everything to do with getting the wind turbines installed, out at sea, and producing power.
This includes managing the contract; following health and safety; making progress on time and staying within budget. I also manage any risks the project may present.
I love the excitement of building these huge turbines in a challenging environment, especially dealing with such a large scope of activity and only a small team. It means I have a lot of responsibility during that process.
Getting the job done is very motivating and satisfying.
Initially I thought working in renewables and in a 'green' industry was a nice to have- because I thought the biggest part I would like is the huge structures we're dealing with.
After getting into the job I found contributing to the well-being of people and our planet actually meant more to me than I thought, so now I wouldn't want to miss that.
