    Well I am wondering what there going to bring out next , Since its no longer a case of having FOET / HUET & EBS we now have CA-EBS plus MIST then some clients also want HV certs plus there own on line courses and now
    shoulder measurements .

    At this rate there be asking you for money for a survival suit ! Its funny as on many of the projects over in Asia you wear full PPE on the chopper " No Hard Hat but Boots and Overalls " Next problem is Slip on boots or Lace up boots .
    I think Europe was only Lace up boots but in Australia it was slip on boots .

    I think we are in the wrong job guys it should be how to milk extra money out of offshore workers .

    I am selling a Control Van for a Comanche ROV. It has everything inside ready to connect it to the vehicle. Includes monitors, video switch, PDU, joysticks, DVRs, transformers, a/c system, some spares, etc. It also has the tether and the surface TMS and crane.

    It is practically the ROV system without the vehicle. It can work for other sub-Atlantic ROVs.

    Interested?, please email me to operaciones@grupohgmsa.com

    Thanks.

    The CA-EBS from what I understand is classed as a SUBA device and whole new set of rules have to be followed and at present OPITO have not released guidelines for use in the helicopter training tank, so the old type EBS is still being used.

    On a job in Mexico, the client insist on everyone wearing Mexican Safety Boots. They where murder on your feet and of poor quality, I am sure they where both different sizes. I pushed the sole off the boot after only having them for three months. Another guy got threatened with being run off for wearing his UK lace up boots.

    Maybe making everyone pay for their food offshore would be the way to go. It would help on the obesity problem offshore. The Armed Forces now have to pay their mess bills despite it being free and part of the wages in the distant past.

  • This is someone sitting at home trying to get CV's in with no actual work on offer. Why? I don't know.

    Why not just not issue super size Survival Suits without a measurement?

    What % of persons really have a shoulder width of over 22inches working offshore? In NSea sectors anyway?


    I would bet its less than 15% of the work force


    22inch shoulder width is quite a size

  • 04/29/15--18:14: Working in Danish Sector
  • Looking for a bit of advice, I'm a UK resident and normally operate through my own UK Ltd. I'm going to be working in the Danish sector soon, but have been given two choices on how to be paid- either gross (and I have to do all the tax stuff) or net (and the agent sorts it out). What do most people do? Is it simple enough to keep right of Danish tax?

    Cheers

    It will help you get a JOB with a small Diving company which has ROV,S If the ROV Manager is a Diver and see's your CV for sure it will help you change to ROV's that type of company is the one you should be looking for if you are more than a Bubble head.

    So try to get work with a company which has small Eye ball ROV's and let them know your interest while Diving and work It that way.


    If you are Mechanical Hydraulic Electrical Technician etc then easy to change to ROV just contact the Company's down the Gulf area.

    I don't know how the course is viewed in the states so can not comment there.

    Apply for work with Oceaneering

    Neither. They are low light Black and White cameras. They will work with either the CCIR or EIA standard. They are a 1v P-P signal.

    Dear industry professionals,

    One of your peers has shared his user experiences on Geo-matching.com. Take a look for yourself and share your own experiences.

    "The Deep Trekker DTG2 Worker ROV is an amazing device. I spent a lot of time researching these mini-ROV's and the DTG2 Worker was by far the best. The ROV offered the simplest out of case setup in my opinion. Pull the tether spool, controller and ROV out, do a quick systems check and you're device is ready to go."

  • I was getting an extra $50 a day in Angola for risk pay. Nothing to rave about but better than nothing and its relatively safe. So, its just an extra $50. Take your malaria meds and have your yellow fever shot.

    Another cute trick is often times the client will pay for a business class flight to get you to the job site. Your agency/employer etc, gets you an economy ticket and keeps the difference. The difference makes up a considerable chunk of your wages - so at the end of the day, they are paying far less for you than they are charging the client - which is about 2- 3 times the rate of what they are paying YOU.

    Well I was a little wrong with my estimate above

    It is just under 3% of the work force who have done this check already out of 60,000 persons who are over the 22inches width.

    Its not about suit size. Its about people not being able to get out emergency exits and blocking it for others.

    Thanks for the info guys. Yes, unfortunately is does appear slow offshore. I'm looking into some electronics certificates now per some of the other threads on this site. Just gotta keep moving forward and getting better.

    I am looking for where IMCA states the expiry of Certificates for personnel interested in ROV Positions.



    IE the usual guidance IMCA give regarding how long a particular competence for a grade can be given? Subject to them being graded at that Position.



    And if anyone has any information about what different providers give on there Certs would be helpful like how years before that grade expires on there competence Cert.

    Doesn't seem so very recently to me when the date is 2012. Although I have to admit I would not work for those rates then but now, with the current decline I would.
