Kristian Ravn, who comes from the position of Managing Director at Semco Maritime Norway, has joined Universal Foundation, a Fred. Olsen related company, as Managing Director this month.
“I have a strong belief in the Mono Bucket and have been impressed with the professionalism and drive of Universal Foundation during the years of development, design and testing of this innovative product,” Kristian Ravn said.
“I am sure that the technology will provide a strong contribution in bringing down costs for offshore wind farms, at the same time reducing risks and environmental impact.”
Kristian started his career at MT Højgaard before spending ten years at ABB, starting in 2003 as a structural engineer and working his way up to Vice President of the Denmark business unit.
During his time at Semco Maritime Norway, Kristian was responsible for the “Think New!” strategy, an innovative drive to make the company a more cost-effective alternative to larger Norwegian competitors. Semco Maritime is an EPCI-contractor for the offshore Oil and Gas sector.
“Kristian is innovative by heart and has extensive experience in large scale project deliveries. We feel he is the perfect fit with Universal,” Rolf Normann, CEO of Fred. Olsen Ocean said.
Kristian has an MSc in Structural Engineering and holds a certificate in Business Administration (HD-O), specialised in innovation.
