20 years of Moventas expertise
Pertti Penttinen, Moventas’ Head of Engineering, began his career at Moventas in 1999, and has been working in wind turbine gearbox engineering since then. Pertti has worked as a Designer, Project Manager, and since 2015, he has been leading the Moventas Engineering team.
In 20 years, a lot has changed. Actually, change is something Pertti especially appreciates in his work: “During my 20-year career at Moventas, there has been just few days similar to each other. And those have all been sick days”, Pertti laughs. Pertti embraces change, as it maintains interest and motivation.
Both the job, and the industry have changed dramatically over the last 20 years. Turbine sizes have grown, working tools have become more advanced, and the team has multiplied during that time. When Pertti started, their team consisted of five people. Since then, the team has grown tremendously, and Pertti’s wind turbine gearbox experts are present around Moventas and partnership locations globally.
The past 20 years have taught Pertti a lot. But what advice would he give to a new employee? “You need to have a constant desire for learning. The whole wind industry is continually growing and evolving”, Pertti says.
