Always Setting a New Course
You might think that building a wind farm is as easy as having somewhere to put the turbines, installing them and then just waiting for the breeze to come a-rollin. But there’s much more to it than that.
Whenever Equinor or any other company wants to build a new wind farm, a bidding contest takes place. Bids are based on how much it’s going to cost to build and operate the wind farm and what the price of the power will be.
“We’re trying to make sure that Equinor has the best tools to simulate what the total cost will be in an early phase," Mats Grønning Andersen says.
“Personally, I’m very happy to be working in a company where I have the opportunity to combine working with renewable energy and exploring new technology at the same time.”

“I feel a lot more inspired to immerse myself in the subject and learn more about it when I get to take part in deciding what technology we’re going to use. This freedom and the amount of responsibility we get really makes you feel a greater sense of accomplishment when we succeed.”
