Meet Petur Martin

Petur Martin joined KJ-Elráð in 2008 and has been a part of the company ever since, including after KJ-Elråd merged with SMJ in 2014.

On a daily basis, Petur Martin works on project management, automation, such as BMS/CTS and SRO, and general electrical engineering.

At times, project management takes precedence, where his responsibilities often include coordinating and planning, as well as communicating with clients and the industry at large. Other times, he gets the opportunity to delve deeper into his area of expertise. He says the best part of working at SMJ is the variety and the exciting, challenging nature of the tasks.

Petur Martin has been part of the journey from when there were only three people at KJ-Elråd to now, where he has over 50 colleagues, including those in different countries. He describes the journey as thrilling and rewarding, and he is proud to have been part of the growth over the past years.

Meet Kristian

Kristian is an engineer based at the Tórshavn office. He graduated as a mechanical engineer from Aarhus University and joined SMJ as an intern in 2020, later securing a permanent position.

Kristian’s daily work revolves around aquaculture projects, where he contributes to designing RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture Systems) and supporting systems for smolt stations in the Faroe Islands and neighboring countries. Leveraging his education, Kristian has developed the skills to take on significant responsibility in constructing systems at smolt stations.

He is particularly skilled in BIM (Building Information Modeling), where, among other responsibilities, he plays a major role in how SMJ utilizes tools like Revit. Early in his tenure, Kristian demonstrated initiative and courage in leading this area and now assists his colleagues daily with BIM/ICT issues. He is responsible for the internal BIM/ICT network group.
