A few months ago, I completed my Bachelor’s degree. It was time for a new challenge. I wondered, what would fit better than continuing with a Master’s degree? Well, I thought, applying the knowledge I gained throughout the years in a project that will actually become reality!
And so, I applied for the TU Delft Solar Boat Team. The ability to design, build, test and race a high-tech boat in one year felt like something I definitely wanted to be part of. The combination of hydrofoiling and renewable energy made it an easy choice. Showing what one can do with solar energy has been a great motivation for me already since we started. I see vehicles powered by green electricity as the future. This stimulates me to deepen my knowledge and insights of the drivetrain of the boat and to design it to make use of the energy with maximum efficiency.
