Below are some comments from our Operational Readiness Team (ORT) – Offshore Installation Manager (OIM) , Hans Dirksen, which speaks for itself.
With ORT in Korea
I am about to complete my first hitch as new ORT member in Korea with the 96K Drilling vessels new build project. A couple of years ago I was for one of our competitors’ 96K new build Drilling vessels at SHI shipyard in Geoje already. During this hitch I met several former colleagues. It was notable to hear that all of them mentioned that our new build vessels look “better” than theirs. Once I completed my first tour on our vessel I recognized their remark. Indeed, our vessel looks more thought about, user friendlier, more ergonomically. Not all this piping on the upperdeck (makes the deck available), well thought about office plan on navigation deck, a spacy engine control room. These are just some of the many positive differences I noticed. I am looking forward to come back to Korea next hitch and help to prepare DS1 to be ready to sail away.
Enjoy the updates and Pictures. Stay Tuned.
