──What made you join jSEO?
I came across the Shizen Energy website when I was looking for a new job after retirement. I was drawn to the PURPOSE of the company “we take action for the blue planet” and wanted to work with people with the bright smiles on the website. I also like the blue uniforms, which are designed with the corporate color.
──What is your previous working experience?
I worked as an electrical engineer for a power company for about 40 years, and when I visited Germany about 20 years ago to research recycling technology for electric power materials, I saw solar panels installed on the roofs of housing complexes and factories, and large wind turbines at wind power plants spinning powerfully. I felt that someday I wanted to work in renewable energy myself.
──What is your job description?
I provide technical support and oversee safety measures, especially for extra high-voltage electricity solar power plants that are connected with power company transmission lines.
──What do you hope to accomplish at jSEO?
I want myself to grow with the company, and not rest on my past experience or knowledge.
I enjoy working with my colleagues (crew) who have diverse nationalities and experiences, and I really enjoy getting a lot of ideas and inspiration from them.
──What social problem do you think needs to be solved?
I feel that marine pollution caused by microplastics is a very serious problem.
I believe that marine pollution is quietly progressing without us realizing, and that measures are still insufficient.
I think it’s important for each one of us to try to reduce the use of plastic products and stop littering. I try to sort garbage properly and recycle.
