Leadership isn’t about forcing development.
It’s about finding strenght to create.
Anouk Dijkstra, the youngest descendant of the Dijkstra family. Has been sole succesor of the familybusiness since 2013. At the end of 2017 she became majority shareholder of Prevesco when she bought (and paid for) the shares of the company. Her vision is explained by three elements: 1. innovation has to be intrinsic, it comes from within. 2. spending capital is focused on the effect of the investment, instead of stroking the ego that you have taken initiative. 3. training is key.
Aside her role being CEO of Prevesco, she gives her leadership as President to two Nationwide associations: ‘The Royal Dutch association of Refrigeration’ (knvvk) and to employers organisation: ‘Jong Management’. Which means that she has a quick feeling with the industry with the innovations that they are now investing in (knvvk) and has a good connection at the highest managing board level of the country (JM)
Uniflow. The revolutionary innovation in thermodynamics.
What are we talking about? Droplet separation technology.
A development that raised the performance for NH3 by 200times and for CO2 600times ánd we managed to get the level of performance independent of the medium. That’s contrary to the conventional technology; a technology with an inconsistent performance per medium.
With Uniflow technology we went from 2ppm (R717) with conventional technology, to 0,01ppm with Uniflow. For R744 we went from 7ppm to 0,01ppm.
3 things that is being solved with this technology:
We are faster, simpler, more innovative and have lower costs. We effectuate reduction of CO2 emission by 25.000kg per 1MW and foresee in the necessity of using new techniques.
The headache of system engineers. It lowers CO2 emmissions. We have improved the performance of an highrisk component ánd have standardized the design of the hardware. Also, the efficiency of the component that is directly connected to Uniflow increases by using Uniflow technology. We effectuate reduction of CO2 emission and foresee in the necessity of using new techniques.
Besides the technical innovation, Uniflow has standardized the design of the (separator) vessel. We use capacity ranges, standardized design. It is simplified and it significantly saves engineering costs, maintenance costs and energycosts. On our online calculation tool the separator can be calculated, selected and inquired within 5 minutes.
The biggest advantage of the capacity range is a broader tolerance of the performance of the separator vessel, it improves the steady performance.
“uniflow is a revolutionairy innovation in conventional droplet separation technology”
What Prevesco is about:
to simplify in a revolutionary way.
We focus on innovation in Deeptech. That means, innovations that provide a significant solution to societal problems and challenges that we face. Often products that need capital and leadership in order to grow into the next phase of a business. A good idea often comes quickly but it takes time to turn it into a succesfull product or even business. It requires focus to take an idea from paper to a product with a solid track recod, with an healthy revenue model. Our concept? We guide our innovations through the pilot phase, which means the products are up and running in the field, the revenue model has been tested and the concept is ready to scale. We sell the innovation at that point to generate our own capital to invest in the next innovation in deeptech.
