WaterstofNet welcomes a new colleague, Tom Verlinden. He will become project manager for the Hydrogen Industry Cluster (WIC), aimed at developing projects.
Tom has more than 25 years of experience in the manufacturing industry, chemical industry, logistics sector and the port world. He obtained a degree in Civil Engineering, specializing in energy techniques at the KU Leuven. Within Atlas Copco he was operationally responsible for a project department, a purchasing department, a warehouse and an assembly department for mobile compressors and generators. At BASF Antwerp he worked on several large projects such as the construction of an intermodal train terminal and a broad optimization process for the entire site. He then woke up as a Mobility Manager at the Antwerp Port Authority.
“My great interest in energy systems, combined with my passion for sustainability, led me to WaterstofNet. I strongly believe that hydrogen is an important lever for the transition to renewable energy. Within WaterstofNet I can help shape this necessary transition,” says Tom.
WaterstofNet unites the hydrogen industry in Flanders and the south of the Netherlands through the Hydrogen Industry Cluster. Together with industrial partners, WaterstofNet detects and develops hydrogen projects. The cluster also aspires to extensive knowledge sharing and acts as a spokesperson for the authorities.
