  • Welcome to Althen IIoT, Patrick
12 October 2022
Form 1 October Patrick Sheppard joins our growing IIoT division and will focus on wireless condion monitoring. May we introduce him to you?

Patrick is a highly driven MSc Student Sustainable Energy Technology at TU Delft. He also fatastically served as Team Captain of the award-winning Delft Hyperloop Team for the past 12 months. He is a fantastic new member to our growing IIoT Team. Together with Bernd Rietberg and Joris Lieftinck, Patrick will be helping and advising you about Industrial Internet-of-Things Sensor Solutions and our IIoT Condition Monitoring Solutions in particular.

Captain Team Delft Hyperloop

Together with 37 more students, Patrick worked for a year to design and build the Helios I, already the sixth vehicle of the Delft Hyperloop Team. On home soil Delft Hyperloop eventually won the Complete Pod Design Award for the best overall hyperloop system. A special feature of the Helios 1 was that the prototype floats under the rails using magnetic levitation. No other student team had yet been able to do this.

Althen IIoT Condition Monitoring

Althen is a pioneer and one of the larger partners in terms of IIoT Condition Monitoring applications. Abnormal vibrations or high temperatures of machines can indicate a (coming) failure or breakdown due to component imbalance, misalignment, wear or improper use of the machine(s) in question. Such factors can now be effortlessly identified with our wireless IoT measurement system. Without manual measurements or expensive wired equipment. Patrick will come to lapse our IIoT Team alongside his studies and will actively engage in sales.

In his spare time, Patrick is a enthuiastic player of the Ultimate Frisbee Club, Force Electro from Delft. We are extremely delighted with Patrick's arrival at Althen, and would like to take this opportunity to wish him every success, and above all a lot of fun. Do you have a question about our IIoT applications or perhaps a question for Patrick? Naturally, we would be delighted to hear from you.
