FEB student Floris Boekema has won the Service Logistics Forum Graduation Prize for his thesis on the condition-oriented production and maintenance of offshore wind farms. According to the jury report, Boekema’s thesis stood out positively because of its scientific quality, innovative character and the concise writing style. Boekema compensated for the lack of a case study with an extensive sensitivity analysis, presenting valuable recommendations in this way.

efficient logistics for wind at sea
. Boekema is a student of Industrial Engineering and Management and received the prize during the recent Service Logistics Summit 2017.
