The methanol fuel cell technology is what drove Jens-Emil to Blue World Technologies. He wanted to work within green technology that can help make a difference in the green transition.
At the beginning of August 2021, Jens-Emil Høholt Jensen started as a Technical Engineer Intern at Blue World Technologies in our Platform and Test department. Jens-Emil has a background as an electrician and has been working as a Commissioning Engineer for two years before he started to study Marine and Technical Engineering. He has travelled all over Europe; in Denmark, Greenland, Germany, and Great Britain to install diesel generators, but now was the time for change:
The Platform and Test department
Jens-Emil is spending his internship in our Platform and Test department. He describes how during his internship interview, he talked about his competencies and which working areas he liked. Based on that Blue World decided which department would be most beneficial and educating for him to be part of:
Fuel cells are not on the agenda on MARTEC where Jens-Emil is studying Marine and Technical Engineering. Therefore, he has to apply theories and knowledge from different areas when working with fuel cells, but he believes it is a very dynamic and educational method of working with methanol fuel cells.
Language and education
Jens-Emil is a language student from his high school time, so the international environment and diverse cultures in Blue World were not foreign to him. In fact, it was a large reason for becoming an intern here:
The Platform & Test team consists of team members from different educational backgrounds. Jens-Emil is describing how being from different backgrounds creates a dynamic team as it provides a wide aspect and different views on how things are done:
Jens-Emil is learning a lot in the Platform and Test department. He explains that he has 10 weeks of internship here at Blue World Technologies, and that he is also using this time to get inspired for his topic on his bachelor thesis. Lastly, he states that future Marine and Technical Engineers should be focusing on green work, as he believes it is the future:
