Gerrit Jacobs is continuing his carrier with a commercial company Victron Energy supplying inverters and solar equipment. He will be engaged in market development of their products in South America and Africa. The company is based in Almere the Netherlands, but Gerrit wil probably work from his new base in Panama. This full time job will leave him no time to engage in Arrakis type of activities. We thank him for his valuable contributions and the nice time we have worked together. Regretfully we say him farewell and wish him very much luck with his new assignment. His valuable reports will remain on the Arrakis website.
