Giovanni De Palo

Born and raised in Province of Trieste, I am linked to maritime environment from early age. This passion has grown over the years: first as an athlete of Olympic canoeing achieving results at the national level, then as an instructor, a position that I hold today too.

That link, which did not break even in my early career, and the persistent desire knowing why and how an object works have reached their maximum expression when I started studying Marine Engineering at the University of Trieste.

Later, when I was following a specialized course in “Techniques for designing fast hulls” I have had the chance to meet Andrea who allowed me combining studies with work experience in NavalHEAD, unique opportunity to increase my knowledge in this area.

In NavalHEAD, I mainly deal with the engine room construction, structures and main plant design in compliance with the rules, as well as the drawing of the relevant construction details.
