No compromise when it comes to safety
PES had a great catch-up with Ola Svensson, Head of Project Department at MMT Sweden AB. The Swedish culture permeates this company, where safety and employee well-being are of paramount importance. This company has expanded from being a one-man band to an over 200 strong work force. Their survey solutions have expanded as has their geographical reach, meaning much to look forward to as we move to 2020.
PES: Welcome back to PES Wind magazine. Would you like to begin by explaining a little about the background of your organisation and how you currently serve the wind industry?
Ola Svensson: MMT has been in the offshore business over 40 years now. It started out as a one man dive photo company and is now a company with more than 200 employees with offices in Sweden, England, Norway and just recently opened up an office in Boston US.
We performed our first offshore wind farm projects in the Baltic Sea, approximately 20 years ago now and have served the renewables sector ever since. Our services have increased from Geophysical Surveys and currently include a wide range of services such as 2D/3D UHRS, UXO and Geotechnical Surveys.
PES: We know you work in a variety of sectors so how important is the wind & offshore renewables business to MMT?
