final project during Engineering school in Denmark, 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 an energetic workplace with a lot of
young creative employees and high hopes
bright computerized future in Icelandic industry. I worked on several
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.
In the autumn of 1999, me and two colleagues in the industrial automation department
baught the department out of Tæknival and founded our own company - Logic .
We continued working for various solutions in industrial automation,
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.
then merged Logic with Naust Marine
in 2002, our partner for many years,
a VAR for industrial automation systems, SCADA /HMI
and specialized trawler equipment manufacturing in Iceland.
Marine is a Value-Added-Reseller and developer of automized systems for ships,
/VLT winches and trawl control, power management in the engine room and more.
This also includes
reselling PLC's, SCADA systems, sensors and automation equipment /systems.
Marine now also has offices in Spain and Seattle (USA) for the marine technologies developed.
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 contacts and future business partners.
also do private projects in consulting for seafood industries and the Blue lagoon skin care products factory.
summer of 2004 i got my MBA degree and joined Nortek Iceland, to become the technical manager of the company. I had up to 20 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 carreer.
The company is a value-added-reseller with engineering, programming, installation and commissioning. We also worked
on various projects for future developments - to beat the competition ! |
