Art Anderson Associates hires McKee as marine electrical engineer
- By WorkBoat
McKee will work in the firm’s Marine Division, and be responsible for leading and executing electrical engineering assignments for marine and vessel engineering projects. He will also provide additional support to the firm’s Facilities Division to accommodate surges in electrical workload.
McKee is a Washington-licensed professional engineer with a strong background in marine electrical systems. He began his career as a U.S. Navy electrician and following his military service, obtained his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the University of Washington.
In his civilian career, he has served in lead electrical engineer roles for notable projects like the U.S. Navy’s X-Craft, Washington State Ferries’ new 144-car ferry and repower of an Alaska-based cruise ship. Committed to personal development, McKee obtained his master’s degree in engineering management from St. Martin’s College, completed coursework as a certified energy manager, and is a certified Princeton Review instructor.
In his short time with Art Anderson Associates, McKee has already proven himself to be an asset for the firm’s marine projects, the firm says. He is currently serving as the lead electrical engineer for the repower of the AMHS ferry Tustumena, and providing support for modifications to the Pierce County ferry Steilacoom II and the NOAA research vessel Rainier.
“We are excited to add Sean to our team,” says Ralph Duncan, the firm’s vice president of marine and McKee’s supervisor, in a company press release. “His depth of knowledge in electrical power generation and distribution will further solidify the foundation we are laying to position the Marine Group and the company for sustainable growth.”
