LinkedIn: Roan ZwinkelsAs a Marine Technology Master’s student, you may not have expected me at the embedded systems department. Electronics and programming have however always interested me, and for that reason I have also followed a Computer Science minor. I believe the diverse set of skills I have acquired can be of value within the embedded systems department. That is why I am looking forward to delve into our project and to work within this different domain. During my studies in marine technology the challenge of the sustainability transition of the maritime sector is made very clear. Ships build today often have a lifetime for 30 years. Though these ships could be refitted, they were initially designed without taking the fuels of the future in mind. Who then, is willing to make the gamble to do this now, when the logistics for these fuels are not in place? It often goes back to the story of the chicken and the egg. With this team we can show that some fuels are not that much a ‘future idea’ anymore and that there already are applications for these innovations. Moreover, we gain experience with technology that has the potential to increase the sustainability of the maritime industry and we will take this with us in the rest of our careers.
