Christoffer Schou Christensen is a System Test Engineer at Blue World. Being a part of the Test and Platform team, Christoffer is working with what he believes is the perfect combination, the green transition and working in the field.
Christoffer first heard about fuel cells during his studies within Technology Management and Marine Engineering, but they never really learned about the theories behind it. To learn more, he took the opportunity to be an intern at another fuel cell company, where he gained solid knowledge of fuel cells and their usage.
The tasks Christoffer had as an intern really opened his mind and interest in fuel cells, as he had the opportunity to combine two elements, he was enthusiastic about; to support the green transition and working with the integration of fuel cells in cars.
When Christoffer started in 2019, one of his firsts tasks was to help integrate and install all the inside equipment in the container city which Blue World has built as a smart solution due to lack of space at that time. He explains that being able to learn new things every day, and get to tinker with pumps, valve gear, and test while still learning all the theory of fuel cells are amazing.
Dynamic team spirit
The team Christoffer is part of is called Platform and Test. The primary work tasks he is working on are test and optimisation of Blue World’s products. He is optimising what is already working and also not yet working, to continuously optimate and make the products operate more effectively. He is primarily working together with Control Engineers and is currently the only Mechanical Engineer in his team. Therefore, he is the one to install the equipment and get it going before his colleagues create programs and control systems for it.
Another task Christoffer has, is being responsible for the Mechanical Engineer interns. He highlights that as a company they also feel responsible for educating future talents within fuel cell technology, but also to help shape their understanding of how it is working in a company, and the fact that it is international makes the daily work even more interesting.
