On completion of a seven year engineering Cadetship and achieving the Class 1 Engineering Certificate in Denmark, Carl ventured out into various different engineering roles across the globe.

This included a noteworthy summer onboard the world famous ‘Nella Dan’, visiting all of the Australian Antarctic bases and the east coast of Greenland. Carl moved into a new role, in a Danish ‘energy conservation group’, which worked alongside industry giants to help reduce their energy usage. This kickstarted the European energy debate back in late 1980.

In the early ‘90s Carl and his wife took the challenge of moving abroad and calling Australia home. During the first 14 years in Australia, Carl worked at multiple different power stations in remote locations including Western Queensland, Indonesia and PNG. After returning back to his Maritime roots in 2006, Carl has worked in various engineering roles in worldwide dredging and towage, maintenance super intendency in multiple tug companies.

Carl was approached back in 2009 by MSQ to become an accredited surveyor. Completing the accreditation’s necessary and the ELV and LV electrical categories, Carl received his surveying qualifications to conduct various vessel surveys for both MSQ and later AMSA.
