From May 2023, Kristofer Dingwell is working as a risk engineer at Nilsson Energy. As Nilsson Energy has a long-term aspiration to strengthen our own competence in relevant areas, Kristofer's expertise is a valuable piece of the puzzle in the development of our process safety work.
Safe and reliable hydrogen systems are our highest priority, and in the role as risk engineer, focuses on managing and minimizing potential risk. This includes reviewing the safety of the systems and installations we provide, that we comply with European directives such as ATEX and that we can implement CE marking of our systems.
Kristofer lives with his wife and three children in Stenungsund, just north of Gothenburg. He has a master's degree in chemical engineering and a licentiate degree in process engineering. Previously, Kristofer worked at the petrochemical company Borealis in Stenungsund, where he held a couple of positions during his 12 years in the company, as process engineer and senior researcher.
