Baptiste Biet, Junior Project Manager
1 / What has been your career path so far?
I graduated from the Icam Bretagne general engineering school and then continued with a master's degree specializing in renewable energies and energy auditing at the same school in Nantes.
2 / Why did you choose LOUIS DREYFUS ARMATEURS Group?
I was eager to work in connection with offshore wind power, the LDA Group's Marine Renewables Energies (MRE) Department offered me a great opportunity to discover the sector through the field of offshore wind maintenance.
3 / Can you tell us about your current position and your missions? What do you like the most in this job?
Following my internship in the MRE department, I recently joined the PlenR team as a project manager in order to help the team develop its activities: wind studies, consulting, operation and support for the construction of onshore wind farms. From sea to land therefore, I was in charge of monitoring wind farm inspection projects for around 40 wind turbines in France, coordinating inspection teams and drafting audit reports to clients. For now, the input techniques related to wind turbine inspections are of great interest to me!
4/ 3 must-have qualities for this job?
Being organized allows you to properly prepare and monitor projects that overlap over time. Curiosity is an asset for keeping up to date with developments in the sector and advising clients in the best possible way. Finally, a good relationship is very important both with the teams and with the end customer to develop a relationship of trust and open up new opportunities.
5 / What are your hobbies and interests?
I am quite fond of sport in general, both on land (football, squash) and water sports (swimming, surfing). I also have a special interest in history.
6 / Are you a land or sea person?
I would say land but going to sea is always a pleasure for me!
7 / What is your motto?
I have no motto at all!
8 / Any anecdote or major fact you would like to share?
I had the opportunity to climb to the top of an onshore wind turbine at over 100m alt. and admire a magnificent view of the Champagne countryside!
Thank you Baptiste for this job interview!
