  • 03/03/16--19:40: MINI ROV NEEDED NORWAY
  • If you think the 'Moby Dick' ROV is hydrodynamic, then I'd question the validity of all the other claims... It looks like a flying brick...

  • 03/03/16--19:40: ROV search
  • we are using various deeptrekkers here in norway where it can get pretty rough, we have no problems within reason when it comes to dealing with strong currents. The people we are working with get a big surprise when they see the deeptrekker in action.
    As for the controller, it's perfect for an ROV of it's class the video output is very good quality. we often connect it to a 12" screen if it's available on the boat but you don't need to. Also there is a cool small DVR which you can connect to the controller for recording.
    I've been very impressed with the deeptrekker along with everyone else in the aquaculture industry in norway.

    This is just an update if you guys that registered an account worry about your data. The corporate website and the user profile system are two different systems and run on different servers. Hackers are interested in publicity and want there info up on sites with most traffic. As someone mention also, our software team are currently working on revamping the TalentXP system and this can result in some SSL errors. These should be resolved shortly.

    Also, for you information, the data and userinfo you have at our servers are encrypted with a 512 bit algorithm that most secure sites and banks use today.... Ok, enough tech talk....

    What we guaranty is that R.D.S Talent are alive and kicking during these dark times in the industry as we have reduced our footprint and went into "survival mode". All our policies are still the same and we cant wait to prove it to you once the industry picks it self up. We do actually have 3 live requirements at the moment should you feel like working a bit Smile

    1. Fiberoptic jointers with UJ & PGU certs
    2. OIM with fiber optic cable repair, lay and ploughing experience
    3. Deck hands with fiber optic cable and repair experience

    The client have informed us that Asians, or people that resides in Asia are preferred.

    Let our lead personnel coordinator Mr. Ben Perry know if you are interested at

    Our sincere apology if this gave someone a scare.

    Best regards
    R.D.S Talent

  • 03/05/16--20:37: Who left the industry?
  • I know 4 people who have properly retired , 2 who are sitting it out in pre retirement and 6 others who have started new careers onshore and they are happy doing 9-5 so unlikely to return when things turn round ,
    and several agencies that have passed away unlamented .

    I would say good luck but in the end .............. You are still an agency. Your data base will still be filled out with Non experienced personnel trying to get a job by any means ............ On the sidelines to push if necessary even if it makes a few dollars and not large amounts of profit. It will be a Business and not a non profit charity competing with all the other agencies of which some have been around for the last 25 years with load more contacts and now trusted for one reason or another ..... Mainly the day rate , Paid on time and looked after before during and end of Contract.
    The good thing that happens when our industry goes 'Titsup' is that 'ROV schools' and agencies go down the pan when it gets tough and ROV Operators go direct to the Freelancer which means more money in our pockets ......... Not yours ! Very Happy

    Why would anyone who has gained this information through hard work, years of experience and sacrifice share it for free?

    I do not think it is a reasonable request.

    Honestly, if you have to ask, best to start another business.

    Well, as the original message was 15 months ago and their website still has

    As RDS Talent is still in a pre launch state, certain functionality like the Login / Register, Vacancies etc are not yet operational. Our software team are working on getting all our web and smartphone applications up before the 2015 high season...

    I would suspect that they are either rushed off their feet or have been unable to find any work for the talented pool of people. If you have jobs available, why aren't they on your website.

    Why does your website have full contact details including an actual physical address, rather than a form to fill in for info. It's stuff like that that makes people suspicious and not trust companies and agencies.

    It would appear the website is based in Dublin, Ireland, the company appears to be based in Bangkok, Thailand, Ben Perry CertRP

    Sadly someone will take it. There are a load of people spent a lot of money on courses and want to get in. Although how they will get experienced guys at that rate not sure. I worked in a zoo with big cats once does that count?

    With the Divers requirement gets me a 3.1U costs 5000USD + to get that cert plus costs of location and hotels etc and a Diving cert costs thousands more as well for a Part 1 HSE or ADAS Part 3 or similar Cert etc. And to work normally as a 3.1U you would be experienced Bubble Head as well to get the job in the first place not on your first dive.

    But its the Dream of going in Sat which keeps those rates down longer these days as you need to do twice as much experience before doing your Sat Ticket there is no other reason why someone would take that job even if you come from the poorest of countries a 3.1U cost 5000USD the same dollars everyone uses.
