Offshore Life Snapshot: Diversity Edition

Cultural diversity is the norm in the offshore industry. This blog entry was written approximately 62 nautical miles off the Niger Delta of Nigeria on a vessel manned with personnel from Nigeria, Denmark, the Faroe Islands, South Africa, Scotland, Trinidad and Tobago, England, Canada, India, and the USA. This cultural diversity is compounded by the cultural diversity within each of the nations represented, but no more so than Nigeria. There are an estimated 521 languages and over 1150 dialects and ethnic groups within Nigeria.

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”.

Hurry up and wait

/
If you work in the offshore industry you have not only heard this phrase, you have lived it. An industry with such huge opportunity at play – such risk and reward – forces us to be prepared at a moment’s notice. This back and forth force pushes us to make sure we are never left with a hot potato at the end of the song. When your turn comes you better be ready to rock.

The W-Team

/
In 2015 a crack inspection unit was sent offshore by their company for a complex subsea mooring inspection. These men promptly departed Canada to the Gulf of Thailand and onwards to the open seas off the southern Malaysian coast. Today, highly sought by operators across the globe, they survive as subsea inspectors extraordinaire. If you need a mooring inspection, if no one else can help, and if you contact them, maybe you can hire the W-Team.

Ongoing offshore operations

/
Welaptega operations are in full swing as our team of engineers are busy completing projects around the world. Using Welaptega's suite of tools, our team are inspecting mooring systems, gathering data and analyzing results to ensure that any unexpected damage or accelerated fatigue is detected and diagnosed.

Pass, Shoot, Score!

Welaptega recently scored an opportunity to support youth and the local community with a donation to the Brookfield Atom 1 Elks hockey team. The monies donated supported participation in the Bedford Tournament where the Atom 1 Elks team went undefeated in all three games. This winning streak continued and they secured the silver medal in the Middleton Tournament and were invited to play at the Halifax Scotiabank Centre during the Hockey Day in Canada celebrations.

Social skate with the Welaptega team

/
With winter still in full swing, a few of the Welaptega team decide to make the most of the most recent cold snap and used their lunch hour to go skate (and in some cases stumble) their way round the local skating rink.

World Cup fever at Welaptega

/
As Welaptega continues to work on projects around the globe, from routine mooring assessments to complex MFPA inspections we took a moment today to bestow the much coveted World Cup Sweeper award to Darlene Theriault, who was backing the Germans for success.
