We sat down with Nate to learn more about his work at Albireo Energy. Here’s what he shared:
What do you enjoy most about working on the Seattle Sound Transit account?
I’ve enjoyed seeing the Seattle transit system grow. Installing PLCs into the critical environments of the transit system allows for faster speed of response than DDC systems, and redundancy in the event that one PLC goes down. PLC’s are build to last, and through our work with Sound Transit’s Emergency Ventilation System, we’re ensuring the safety of public transportation customers and staff.
Why do you like working at Albireo Energy?
I love working with my team. Everyone that I’ve worked with has a shared passion, and a common goal to develop our industry. The learning mindset is a big factor for me — we’re all growing and learning about new automations and technology. That’s one of the biggest reasons I’ve continued my career with Albireo Energy for as long as I have.
