Electrical and Control Systems Engineer
Athavan started in the solar industry in 2018. Graduating at the end of 2013 he started working on railway signalling systems and was responsible for the Melbourne metropolitan and suburban area. Notably he was involved in the regional rail link which was a multi-billion dollar project seeking to provide a railway network to the west of Melbourne as well as upgrade existing infrastructure.
From signalling he applied his skills to the building services sector as a project manager, designing and overseeing the installation of building management systems. During this time, he delivered projects all around Victoria ranging from large apartment buildings to military bases.
He now works in for CTP as an electrical and control systems engineer, using the knowledge he has gained from his previous roles, he provides a fresh perspective on problems to solve them in innovative ways.
