Hendrik and Robert met through their wives in 2018. Besides their friendship they talked a lot about Hendrik’s dissertation at the chair of Prof. Knobloch. From the beginning, they both saw a big potential for customer solutions in the wind energy industry.
Hendrik and Faranak were colleagues at the chair of Prof. Knobloch and got to know each other more during these years discussing about their interest and competence. After sparking the idea of start-up by Hendrik, Faranak and Robert also met each other through Hendrik. Meanwhile, they got in touch with different companies longing for industrial pilots. The high accuracy of the fatigue prognosis convinced them to transfer the solution to industry.
Besides Hendrik’s Ph.D. dissertation and job at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum, Hendrik has profound knowledge in the area of construction engineering in which he holds a Master of Science and works self-employed in the area of construction surveys. Robert holds a diploma in economics and wrote his Ph.D. dissertation in the field of service innovation in the mechanical engineering industry. His doctoral father is Prof. Thorsten Posselt, director of the Fraunhofer Center for International Management and Knowledge Economy IMW. Robert has eight years of international industrial experience in the mechanical engineering and steel industry. Faranak wrote her Ph.D. dissertation implementing novel computational approaches and methods applied in structural engineering. Faranak has knowledge in both fields of structural and computational engineering owing to her Bachelor and Master of Science respectively. Programming is a profound competence but also an interest of Faranak.
The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015, provides a shared blueprint for peace and prosperity for people and the planet, now and into the future. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. They recognize that ending poverty and other deprivations must go hand-in-hand with strategies that improve health and education, reduce inequality, and spur economic growth – all while tackling climate change and working to preserve our oceans and forests.
With our service life prediction models we substantially help in the achievement of goals seven (Affordable and clean energy), nine (Industry, innovation and infrastructure) as well as 13 (Climate action).
