"Over the years I’ve seen the nature of our work change. Where initially we did a lot of exploration work, we’ve now moved into renewables and investigate if a site is suitable for the construction or expansion of offshore windfarms."

"One of the strangest things we found while reviewing the data, was a shipwreck in front of the Norwegian coast!"
We weren’t expecting to find anything special on the seabed, but suddenly there it was. Nobody knew a vessel sank there, so it felt kind of special to be the first to find out and report it. I don’t know if the wreck was salvaged or if it still sits there at the bottom of the sea. It will surely hold some secrets!
I’ve been working on this vessel -the Fugro Galaxy- for seven years now, and during those years I’ve really gotten to know the crew. When you live together on a vessel for longer periods of time your connection expands. We do not only talk about work, but the time spend together on board actually makes for great friendships as well.

This crew also hangs out during our time off and I've made some great friendships here
During those years on board I’ve seen the nature of our work change as well. Where initially we did a lot of exploration work, we’ve now moved into renewables and investigate if a site is suitable for offshore windfarms. This means we also take on new equipment and we are challenged to keep on learning. Apart from the technical challenge of handling new equipment I am also challenged when I am asked to train and mentor when new technical crew joins us on this vessel.
