Tristan Murphy, student at Canyon Crest Academy in San Diego with oil filter systemPart of this program is giving students interested in Marine Technology the opportunity to experience the working world. Within six weeks Tristan was shown how the company works and what the responsibility of the engineering department are, from filing to building prototypes. During his internship at SIDUS Solutions, Tristan built an oil filter system designed to recycle the white mineral oil used in SIDUS’ pan & tilt units. The project was a success and the system he built is being used today. Tristan also visited NASSCO, accompanying Managing Director Leonard Pool, for the commissioning of the TAK-E 14 ship equipment that SIDUS supplies. This was a great opportunity to see how SIDUS’ equipment works in the field and have a tour of a shipyard. SIDUS Solutions hopes Tristan enjoyed himself and wishes him all the best for his future.
