Øivind Berggrav Project Controls Manager

Aker Energy 7016 Berggrav

Øivind is bringing to the company vast experience from working with mega-projects around the globe for 10 years.

To join Aker Energy, Øivind and his family moved back to Norway after living most of the last 10 years abroad in Singapore, China, Ireland and Sweden. Though back in his home country Norway, Øivind still enjoys a fast-paced, international working environment.

I was intrigued by the opportunity to join a new company, being able to participate in a start-up where you can contribute to shaping the company.

“I was intrigued by the opportunity to join a new company, being able to participate in a start-up where you can contribute to shaping the company. I believe a career in Aker Energy will offer exciting opportunities both in Norway and abroad, and I very much look forward to working with a group of highly competent colleagues,” Øivind says.

Øivind's educational background brought him early international experience, which has since shaped his career. He holds a Master of Science from NTNU in Trondheim, where he spent one year abroad as an exchange student at Ecole Centrale Nantes, France.

“I wrote my master’s thesis for a Norwegian company in China and started working there afterwards. Then I had a period back in Norway before I left to work on REC’s integrated solar manufacturing plant project in Singapore. I have been working with mega-projects around the world since then, where I have had a variety of project roles,” Øivind says.

He enjoys the ambitious working environment in Aker Energy, and the opportunity to work with colleagues from a range of different backgrounds and nationalities.

“Aker Energy is definitely the most exciting company to work within the energy industry right now – a new company with a new mega-project. Aker Energy has so far proved to be a great work place with opportunities for steep learning curves,” Øivind says.
