“Do you have an idea that you just can’t get out of your head?”: That was the motto for the “Jugend forscht” youth science competition in Germany this year. It was the sixth time that the North Hesse regional rounds for new, young researchers took place at SMA. The date? February 23rd. The number of competitors? More than 90 children and teenagers who participated and presented their ideas to a jury of experts, setting a new participation record. Let’s slow down and take things one step at a time. 😉
If there is still a job out there that is strictly limited to men, being an electronic engineering technician is definitely not it. After all, there are just as many women as men who have a steady hand and a good eye for things, and, in my line of work, where we deal with small currents, that’s essential. It’s also why we’ve earned the German nickname “Dünnströmer.”
With experience in sales and marketing in various industries including telecommunications and technology and electronics, Kitti Thananithikul – or P’ Koe as he is called by the SMA team – is a Sales Manager at SMA Thailand and also part of the Sales Team. His goal in joining SMA was to find and create a new customer base by himself within three to six months. After the first three months, P’ Koe received a large order from Gunkul Engineering for a 31.5 megawatt power plant project. From the first day up until the end of his first year, total sales from all projects reached 140 megawatts. In his own words, P’ Koe talked about his sales strategy below.
In Kassel, ice hockey reigns supreme. The ambience around the rink, the sheer speed on ice, and the players’ passion are only some of the things that define the unique spirit of the fastest team sport in the world.
The first PV diesel project in the megawatts was commissioned in Thabazimbi in November 2012 and, as a future development engineer, I was granted the opportunity of being present for the commissioning of this flagship project.
It’s Saturday, 8:22 in the morning. Truth be told, it’s just about the right time to roll over and go back to sleep, except I’m standing around on track 3 at the Willibahnhof train station while I wait for the train that will be taking me to the protest “Wir haben Agrarindustrie satt” in Berlin.
