Our Story
After a career as a Fisherman from Esbjerg (June 1974 - January 1976) and as a Marine Fitter at the Esbjerg Harbor (January 1976 - January 1982), including the 3.5 years apprenticeship and 6 months as a Steel Shipbuilder at Odense Steel Shipyard Ltd. Lindø, John Bang Skaarup achieved a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering, Energy Technology, at the "University of Southern Denmark, Faculty of Engineering - Odense Teknikum" (January 1982 - January 1986).
After graduation John  worked as Offshore Surveyor at DNV in Esbjerg for a period of almost 10 years (February 1996 - December 1995), and with a solid background from DNV, John chose to start as an Independent Consultant in December 1995. The company was originally set up as early as October 1, 1995 under the name "Island Engineering".


From June 1996 to May 2007 our business area was expanded with "Fanoe Smokehouse", (Fanø Røgeri) still with "Island Engineering" as the main business. The "Fanoe Smokehouse" was operated as a restaurant and smokehouse with production, selling and serving of smoked fish. "Fanoe Smokehouse" was sold in May 2007, an the company name was again changed from the previous "Island Engineering / Fanø Røgeri" to the original "Island Engineering".

Since we are no longer resident on the Island of Fanø we changed our company name January 14, 2017 to the more contemporary and appropriate name "Bang Skaarup Project Services".
