About Patrik Swanljung

Patrik grew up sailing (his mother put him under a sail to sleep as a baby!). A trained scientist, Patrik holds a PhD from the Royal University in Stockholm, several patents, and has 30 years experience in medical technology. Retiring from that field in 2001, he got a chance to combine his experience and his love of boating by starting a company making solar panels for marine use. This year Patrik finally decided to spend more time at sea and less in running a business, but he is still active part time in solar design.
