Med Vert Silvija Seres

I denne episoden av #LØRN snakker Silvija med Operations Director i CoreMarine AS, Ben Fitzgerald, om marine-teknologi. CoreMarine ble grunnlagt av et kollektiv av subsea- og marine-ingeniører som har til hensikt å utvikle teknologier og effektive løsninger for hav-industrien. Teamets erfaring er fra olje- og gassindustrien, og det arbeider mot en fremtid innen bærekraftige hav-næringer. I podcasten diskuterer Silvija og Ben blant annet norsk tang, og hvorfor vi bør spise mer av det. Ville du spist middag under havet? 

What are you doing at work?
We’re building CoreMarine to service the whole ocean economy with smart engineering solutions. Specifically, we’re using large motion data-sets to come up with predicative ship response models and algorithms. 

What are the most important concepts in marine technology?
Transfer of tech and of knowledge, and transfer between the marine sectors, but also transfer between industries.

Why is it exciting?
It is the same as the radical transparency concept by Ray Dalio and Bridgewater – where employees are able to be open and honest about their thoughts about the business. It creates a fast-moving and adaptive business where many people share thoughts and ideas together.

What do you think are the most interesting controversies?
Australia’s lack of support towards innovation and renewables, and its apparent re-investment into coal.

Your own favourite projects in marine technology?
The underwater restaurant we installed in summer 2018 in southern Norway.

Your other favourite examples of marine technology internationally and nationally?
The floating bridges project by Statens Vegvesen for the E39 in the west coast of Norway.

What do we do particularly well in Norway of this?
Everything. I have the benefit of seeing this from the perspective of an Australian. Both the Australian and the Norwegian economies are reliant on a single resource for the majority of their GDP. In Australia it’s iron ore or minerals and in Norway it’s oil. Both resources experienced significant declines in the last five years, but the policy response from both governments has been poles apart.

A favourite future quote?
A man is about as big as the things that make him angry.

Most important takeaway from our conversation?
Stay curious. Learn, share and follow other industries. For their knowledge, tech and processes.

We’re building CoreMarine to service the whole ocean economy with smart engineering solutions. Basically future proofing ourselves as ‘mechanical’ engineers, a mash-ups of new tech and old engineering to benefit from both and bring our engineering into the new age.

Refleksjon

Lær av industrier du ikke selv er i. Hvordan skal vi lære av industrier som enda ikke er rammet av ønsket om å dele sine suksess?
