A longstanding member of the H2 community died in May 2022 after a serious illness: Volker Blandow. The former employee at Ludwig-Bölkow-Systemtechnik GmbH (see also report on p. 42) had a major hand in the fact that LBST has made a name for itself as a hydrogen engineering firm far beyond the borders of Germany. With his great wealth of knowledge and his conscientiousness, he has made a fundamental contribution to advancing the energy transition and the transformation now taking place in the direction of a hydrogen society. Condolences were expressed from the many institutions for which Blandow had so diligently worked over the years – LBST, Green City AG, TÜV Süd. The passing of Volker Blandow has left a great hole.
