With their extensive ambitions, Sunlit Sea is a central player in the field of floating solar power. A glance at the evolution they have undergone across their entire technology stack supports this.
A team from Kodeworks has been central to this development, and is today working on segments like hardware design and software development for monitoring, maintenance and optimization of power production. Rune in Kodeworks has worked on the electronics and sensorics of the float modules, and shares his experience in Sunlit Sea
In Sunlit Sea, I’ve gotten the chance to discover solutions to problems. I’m not just implementing a function to satisfy a unit test, but instead I get to solve real problems, which requires me to utilize my full professional knowledge. I’m quite simply an inventor, producing real stuff. Here, I’m free to explore possible solutions and together with my colleagues, we find out how to e. g. establish a data stream of moisture measurements from the inside of a metal construction.
As co-founder of Sunlit Sea, Kodeworks has been part of the picture from the very beginning, in 2019. As a startup with huge ambitions, and in a demanding, interdisciplinary field that has yet to mature, there are a number of challenges that need to be overcome in order to write a success story.
