How do you enjoy spending your free time?”

I enjoy the great outdoors, going on hikes, runs, or all other physical activity in general. My guilty pleasure has always been video games, and I used to be an avid E-sport professional.

What is your favourite feature of the ScanReach OWC network?

“One of the key aspects i like about the OWC is the flexibility. the ability to connect to various elements onboard, such as flowmeters, people, assets, and cargo. This allows for real-time data collection and monitoring, which can significantly improve operational performance and safety measures. In addition, the OWC network supports the development of innovative performance enhancement measures that would otherwise be hampered by complicated and expensive cable systems. This flexibility to innovate can be a game-changer in the maritime and offshore industry, helping to drive competitiveness and sustainability.”
