Anna, Refinery Manager
Following her first job as a process engineer, Anna has been taking on different roles at Nynas, including production manager and since 2015 as refinery manager. “The job of refinery manager gives me the opportunity to combine my great interest in technology with leadership and business development,” she explains.
Perform and contribute
Anna's area of responsibility includes all aspects of the refinery business in Gothenburg. Her mission is to develop competence within the organisation and to make sure that the conditions are the best possible for each and every employee so that everyone can perform and contribute.
“It’s no coincidence that I’ve chosen to stay so long at Nynas”, says Anna. “The company’s greatest asset is competent and motivated employees, but there’s also a wonderful team spirit here. I look forward to helping contribute to Nynas’ continued development.”

Ludwig, Process Engineer
During his time studying at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Ludwig had the opportunity to participate in a visit to Nynas Refinery in Nynäshamn. He was impressed by both the facilities and the ongoing development projects. "It was just as I had imagined a workplace for a process engineer should look like. When I saw that there was a vacant position within the Nynas trainee program in the spring of 2021, I never hesitated to apply," he says.
Driving Improvement Projects
After completing the one-year trainee program, Ludwig started his new job as a process engineer in the Process Technical Service department. He doesn't regret it. "Besides interesting tasks and a positive working atmosphere, I have fantastic colleagues, which makes the daily work both enjoyable and educational. The job as process engineer encompasses a variety of tasks with the overarching mission of monitoring and streamlining the operation of process facilities. "In plain language, this means that, in addition to overseeing the facilities I'm responsible for, I also need to identify problems and, when necessary, initiate and lead improvement projects.
Alongside his main responsibilities, Ludwig is in charge of coordinating full-scale testing in the facilities and collecting data for CO2 and energy monitoring. Right now, however, the primary focus is on the major maintenance and inspection shutdown. "I'm really looking forward to it, especially considering that many of the projects I've been involved in will be implemented during the shutdown," Ludwig concludes.
