Tell us a little bit about yourself! 

My name is Espen and I come from Arendal. I graduated from NTNU in Trondheim with a Master’s degree in Marine Technology in 2013 and have since worked for Global Maritime in Stavanger, before moving back to Arendal with my family this spring. On the 1st of August, I started working for Sevan SSP, as a Senior Engineer in the Marine Analysis department.  


What makes Sevan SSP an attractive workplace for you?   

A high level of competence and lots of expertise among the employees, as well as a good concept that I am confident will be relevant for not only the current designs but also future applications. In addition, the relatively small size of the company means short reporting lines and that everyone can make a difference in shaping the future of the company. 


What are your expectations in Sevan SSP?  

I’m very much looking forward to new challenges and diving into more advanced marine analyses and combining this with my previous experience. I have already met the Arendal office team and I look forward to meeting the rest of the team.  


Why work with marine analysis? 

Working with marine analysis, one can play an important role in many phases of a project and have a specialized skill set understanding the interaction between water and structures. After working with marine analyses for some years, I gradually moved more into the execution of marine operations and management roles. Now I am ready to challenge myself on more technical aspects again and I hope marine analysis will give me the opportunity to combine practical experience with analytical skills to deliver good solutions. 


How do you enjoy spending a day off?  

Most days off are spent with my family, and often outdoors with my kids. Moving back to Arendal, I also hope to be able to spend more time boating and kayaking in the summer season and skiing in the winter. 


Do you have a fun fact about yourself?

My first experience with designing and building floating structures was with my friends as kid; building rafts out of empty barrels, ropes and other building materials we had at hand. Unfortunately, we didn’t know much about stability and structural integrity then. This meant the use of the rafts were quite limited, and we ended up in the water countless times during building and when trying to use the rafts…  

Sevan SSP is excited to welcome Espen to the team. We are looking forward to getting to know him, learn from his experience and work with him on our future projects.
