Meet Govinda “G” Jagdeo, Project Engineer

Meet Govinda “G” Jagdeo. G is the newest member of the Welaptega Team and was hired on to fulfill the role of project engineer. He has been with us for just under two months now and his outgoing, optimistic and “can-do” attitude makes him a great addition to our team. Govinda is now offshore Australia working on one of our projects, but before he left we sat down with him to learn a bit more about who is really behind the man we call “G”.

Guess who's back?

Testing SAMIR Update

SAMIR (Semi-Autonomous Mooring Inspection Robot) testing is continuing with excellent results so far; we are getting the system ready for the offshore trial scheduled later this year.


We completed the prototype subsea sensor system earlier this year and in-air testing is well underway! The test bed is set up with samples to test data collection and deployment. SAMIR will be mounted onto and travel along the test pieces, collecting data as it goes. Once post-processed, the data will allow us to quantitatively evaluate the condition of the test pieces and demonstrate SAMIR’s capability
