About the translator
Johannes Christoffersen

Johannes Christoffersen, a native of Norway, was born in Kragero in 1931 and grew up in Skien. In 1964 he emigrated to the USA and moved with his family, wife and baby daughter, to New York where he worked for the Norwegian company, the Kvaerner Group, promoting Norwegian ship technology to the world shipbuilding market.
In 1978 he moved to the West Coast, settled in Bellevue, WA, and started his own company. The main activity was in partnership with other Norwegian and American companies to retrofit ocean-going tankers during voyages world-wide with Inert Gas Systems and Performance and Condition Monitoring instrumentation.
Now retired, Christoffersen enjoys sailing and hiking along with his photo hobby and the good life in the great Northwest with his wife Ragnhild and their daughter Marianne and her family, consisting of husband and two children, who live near by.
