Of course, they can.

Nathalie Van Driessche started as a service technician in MHI Vestas Offshore Wind back in October 2016. She explains that even though many thinks of her job as a man’s job, everyone is required to prioritize safety. That’s what makes women and men equal in this job.

To Nathalie, knowledge sharing with her colleagues is very important:

“MVOW wants us to learn. Everyone has their own qualifications, but everyone is given the chance to learn more”.

However, knowledge sharing is according to Nathalie also about sharing ideas, plans and personal issues. Life on the vessel builds trust between Nathalie and her colleagues. They don’t just work together – they live together.
