My final project there was to make a PLC control of a hydrogen
generative cell at an experimental village
on the north-west coast of Denmark.
My first job as an engineer was at Tæknival's
industrial automation department 1995-1999. It was a good workplace with a lot of young creative employees and high hopes
for a bright computerized future in Icelandic industry. I worked on several development projects like IT4Food (Information
Technology in Food industries) and QimIT (Quality Index Method for IT). We automized a dousin factories, fish farms, water
plants, hydro-power stations and the main oil terminal in Iceland. |
the autumn of 1999, me and two colleagues in the IA department baught the department out of Tæknival and founded our
own company - Logic . We continued working for various solutions in industrial automation, but the seafood industry was getting a decrease in
profits these years. This led to a dramatic decrease in automation and new investments almost came to a halt in many factories.
We then merged Logic with Naust Marine in 2002, a couple of experienced guys in specialized trawler equipment manufacturing
in Iceland. |
In 2002 I went to school again for Executive Masters degree
in Business Administration (MBA) at the national university. I made a lot of good friends there and business partners...
I continued working at Naust Marine, with a few private projects in consulting for seafood industries
and the Blue lagoon
skin care products factory.
The summer of 2004 i got my MBA degree and joined Nortek
, to become the technical manager of the company. I have a couple of jolly guys working for us - I try to control their efforts
to create a good working environment with some nice opportunities for personal development and carrier. We are working on
various projects for future developments - to beat the competition ! |
I have also been known to give part time lessons in the three
main technical schools here, the machineries and sailor's school (http://www.fti.is), Electrical continuing education (http://www.raf.is)
evening classes (http://eftirmenntun.vsfi.is) and the Technical University which has now merged with
