Sobi Thomas started his Blue World journey in 2019 and is now a Senior System Architect Engineer. He had extensive experience in the research of energy systems, however, he strived to use his knowledge in the industry.
Sobi Thomas is originally from India, where he completed his bachelor’s and master’s degree. Thereafter, his interest in fuel cells took him to Denmark. In 2014, he first started as a research assistant at the world-renowned Department of Energy Technology at Aalborg University, and after eight months, he got an opportunity to start his PhD in fuel cells in collaboration with the fuel cell company, SerEnergy. In this partnership, Sobi got to know Anders Korsgaard and Mads Bang, who then later Co-founded Blue World Technologies together with Mads Friis Jensen and respectively works as Chief Executive Officer, Chief Technology Officer, and Chief Commercial Officer.
HT-PEM fuel cells
After completing his PhD, he got the position as Postdoc at the same department. There he was responsible for supervising students alongside performing research in energy systems. When Blue World Technologies was founded, Sobi reached out to Mads Bang as he wanted to try something new after working with research for the past six years and to use his HT-PEM fuel cell knowledge.
Sobi started as a System Architect Engineer, and he works with system design, control development, and automation. He is involved in the software and control logic development for the system and core-component development at Blue World. Moreover, he is also developing test stations for fuel cells and reformers focusing on software and control.
Making a green career
In 2021, Sobi became a Senior System Architect Engineer. He is still working on the system level, but now he has more responsibility and is working closely together with the Chief Technology Officer, Mads Bang. Sobi is part of our Platform and Test team, and he explains that there is a great dynamic between the team members.
Sobi states that he really enjoys the intercultural environment at Blue World Technologies. The company has been good at accommodating the different cultures, as he does not notice the different cultures as much during the daily work, as everyone has a shared focus on the development of core components, and a shared target to solve the challenges that arise within the technology.
