Spirited researcher in the field of renewables ever since he joined the Nergica team, Simon is also a field engineer who cares about concrete issues. Having worked as both head of quality control and programmer for numerical control machines, he is quick to understand the real constraints that can have an impact on research.
Imaginative, creative and versatile, Simon successfully designed a compressed air injection system for a diesel generator turbocompressor. Additionally, he was instrumental in planning and installing a wind lidar system for research purposes in Quebec’s Far North. It is precisely this type of activity that has enabled him to improve renewables deployment in microgrids and further reinforce his expertise in wind power in cold climate conditions.
As a blues lover and outdoor enthusiast, this seasoned mechanical designer has definitely found in the Gaspé everything he needs to live out his passions.
