Early Careers – Meet Mario Bovero

How would you describe life at Apollo?

Apollo has a great work environment. The atmosphere is relaxed yet still offers a wide variety of challenging projects that test your knowledge base while also allowing for plenty of learning opportunities. We get a good mix of short and medium length projects.

Tell us about your favourite project you have been involved with at Apollo?

My favourite project was the Innovate UK funded maritime decarbonisation project where I drove the conceptual development of a floating fuel depot that had the capacity to deliver low carbon fuels to support vessels in the future ScotWind supply chain. It was good to be part of a longer term project and to be involved in the various stages of development, from background research to contacting suppliers. Throughout this period I also had plenty of chances to present my work internally and externally at conferences and exhibitions.

What makes Apollo stand out compared with other similar companies?

Apollo has a good company culture where they don’t just talk about doing things a certain way but they actually act upon it. They are open to honest feedback and transparent in the way they communicate changes to workers.

What activities have you been involved with outside of engineering at Apollo?

There’s been plenty of non-technical activities at Apollo such as STEM outreach at local schools and community centres. Apollo supported me in continuing my school volunteering after finishing university and hence I became a STEM ambassador and made my own DIY wave energy experiment which I went on to present to schools around Aberdeen city and shire.
