"I was able to discover potential that I never thought I had. And I found it while balancing my personal life and looking after my family."
Nathan is a commendable engineer. He's referring to the energy transition; a global effort to switch to sustainable sources of energy to save our planet. It’s complex, but the opportunity to be on the front line at Worley propels Nathan out of bed each morning.
"I enjoy solving problems. And that’s exactly what we do here. I enjoy technical problems the most, but it’s always fun to think outside the box for commercial, people, academic and other project-related challenges. The sort that naturally emerge when you’re tackling something as big as the energy transition."
For Nathan, the journey started in Bristol. He joined Worley at the turn of the century, just as his home country’s appetite to explore cleaner sources of energy was growing.
"The first project I was involved in for Worley was a hybrid combined cycle and solar parabolic trough power plant funded by the World Bank. That opened the door for me to get involved in the renewable energy program for US."
