Let us introduce ourselves! We are Richard and Linnea, the two trainees that started our journey at NKT in Karlskrona in September. Here at NKT in Karlskrona we produce, test and deliver high voltage cable systems enabling the transition towards renewables and green energy. NKTs global presence and large organization enables both professional and personal development. It's really exiting for a newly graduated student to be a part the large project shaping our future society.
I am Linnea, a former master’s student within electric power engineering at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg. It was my interest in high voltage technology and sustainability together with the openminded culture that encourages continuous development that made me choose NKT, and I haven’t been disappointed so far.
My name is Richard, I’ve done my studies at Lund University where I have a master’s degree in electrical engineering with a specialization towards energy and electric power engineering. My fascination of large projects and the transformation towards a sustainable future perfectly aligned with NKTs visions. Add to that the close proximity to the sea, and a sea lover like me was completely sold on NKT in Karlskrona.
5th Rotation: We are now 8 months into our journey as trainees at NKT.
Richard: I am currently following our tendering process with the Commercial and Tendering department. The high voltage power cable market is very hot and it’s a very interesting time to get insight into their work!
In order to produce the most attractive offer to our clients it is important that the commercial and tender department is kept up to date on the latest and greatest in NKTs development. It can be topics like cable monitoring systems that monitor the cable after installation and through it’s lifetime. Investments, improving our production or our installation method. How variations in material prices impact us and how the market develops around the globe.
All of these subject and many more have to be considered when tendering for a project and having or not having the latest information can win or lose a project.
This week we also got the opportunity to visit our material lab. The material lab is where cable materials and properties are studied on a very accurate level. With their equipment they can detect and analyze the smallest of damages or deviations. Our cables are extremely sensitive and the material lab continuously monitor the quality. With their expertise they are of course also crucial in development projects.
