Amprion depends on the know-how of its personnel. Experts therefore pass on their accumulated experience and knowledge to younger colleagues – a process not limited to technical questions.

»During the energy transition the tasks of a grid customer manager have steadily increased in number and above all become more diverse. We expect new personnel to have the ability to focus separately on each individual customer. Against this backdrop we often have to come up with new solutions for any given project, and that is when the experience of long-standing employees and the ideas of new personnel complement each other ideally. Thorsten Schlüter ensures that the whole process runs smoothly. He has already begun supporting customers to take the strain off the team.«

Head of Grid Customer Management

»Every plant project is different, which is what makes my work so interesting and challenging. I certainly cannot replace Rainer Jäger, with his wealth of experience. But before his departure I will endeavour to absorb as much of his knowledge as possible. He is always ready to listen and tries to answer every question. I can draw particular benefit from his network of contacts. It is hugely valuable to be introduced as his successor to all the project participants. This transition process is very well organised at Amprion.«

»For 34 years I’ve been occupied with the dynamics of the continental European interconnected system. During this continuous learning process I have been able to draw again and again on my own experience and contacts built up over the years. With the advent of new technologies we have to take a fresh look at fundamental questions of system stability. This task now falls to my younger colleagues. It gives me great pleasure to be able to pass on the knowledge I have accumulated over the years.«

Prof Dr.-Ing. Eckhard Grebe, 65

Grid and Systems Analysis

»The fundamentals of systems engineering and stability analysis make for an extremely exciting subject area. In Germany the experts in this field can be counted on the fingers of two hands, which is why I was so keen to work with one of them at Amprion. Dr Grebe has passed on a great deal to my colleagues and me. To ensure that no valuable details get lost, in our department we have laid down uniform standards governing knowledge transfer, and in-house experts support us in their implementation.«

»After almost 36 years working as a substations project leader I am currently teaching my successor the ropes. Knut Kremp is taking on a complex, major task in the conversion of the St. Peter substation. He brings with him the necessary technical expertise. Where I am happy to help him is with the project-specific details and personal recommendations. I am certain that he will be able to overcome the challenges he faces - a good feeling to have.«
