Birthday cake and BEMS; a day in the life of a project manager
Working in BEMS means going behind the scenes in some interesting places. Places the public wouldn’t normally get to go. From government buildings to behind the scenes at various tourist attractions. Visiting such an interesting mix of places keeps the role exciting, according to our Scottish Project Manager, Steven.
For Steven, the Western High-Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) Link is the most memorable site he’s worked on. It’s an undersea electrical link between Scotland and North Wales. And it allows a whopping 2,250 MW of power to be transmitted in both directions. Rumour has it, engineers working on the project in 2016 discovered an almost-intact wreck of a World War 1 German submarine.
