Project Engineerbeta GmbH, Berlin
beta GmbH is an energy contractor which supplies customers with heat & electricity from small CHP plants in domestic areas. As a contractor beta GmbH carries out consulting, planning, financing and operation of the energy systems. In addition beta GmbH operates their own heating stations.
Among other tasks I manage and monitor maintenance optimization of the existing heating stations as well as the entire planning of new projects.
In my daily work I am also mainly responsible for the regulatory framework of CHP plants. This includes the EEG, EnEff, EnEv, KWKG, EnStG, StromStG and EnWG.
Project EngineerTheilen Maschinenbau, Varel
I projected belt dryer systems for applications in the chemical and food industry worldwide. My tasks included establishing quotations and engineering dry processes. I managed projects from start to finish. Part of it was defining the project's goal with the customers on site followed by the specifications of the dryer system. This also included choosing component suppliers and change management.
As part of the “Callux” project, a on-road test for domestic fuel cell heating systems, I evaluated and summarized the results of the project.
TraineeInstitut für Solarenergieforschung, Hameln
For the “KES” (Kosteneffiziente erdvergrabene Heißwasserspeicher) project concerning the cost-efficiency of land buried warm-water storage systems for one- and multi-family houses I evaluated test results and erected a prototype.
TraineeExxon Mobil Production Deutschland GmbH
Working alongside apprentices extended my basic practical knowledge in electrical and mechanical engineering. Based on these experiences I decided to study mechanical engineering.
Master of ScienceCarl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg
During this international study program I obtained practical and theoretical knowledge about renewable energy systems. The program included a 2-month internship abroad. I specialized in “wind energy systems”.
Master Thesis (M. Sc.)
The thesis examined a specified wind hydrogen storage model using MatLab. Overspeed's part in the government funded “HyWindBalance” project was to provide a feasibility study.
Overall M. Sc. grade: 1.70
Bachelor of EngineeringJade University of Applied Science, Wilhelmshaven
Beside further knowledge in classic mechanical engineering I learned about heating, air conditioning, photovoltaic and solar thermal systems.
Bachelor Thesis (B. Eng.)
Institut für Solarenergieforschung, Hameln
My objective was to analyze the usability and temperature stability of a sealing compound used in the flat plate collector. In a high temperature test stand I analyzed its ageing behaviour in stagnation. In order to examine the temperature profiles, I simulated construction variations of the flat plate collector in Heat2.
Overall B. Eng. grade: 1.83
TraineeUniversity of Victoria, B.C., Canada
As a part of “West Coast Wave Initiative (WCWI)” I researched wave energy systems. In SimuLink I implemented a model of a single motion wave energy converter with a hydraulic power take-off system.
Work & TravelNew Zealand
Working, traveling and living in another country broadened my view.
