1. Summary (Cover Letter) - CV/Resume Part 1 [Mandatory]
I am applying for an ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN position in your industry. I have over thirteen years experience in offshore diamond-mining with De Beers Marine, encompassing drillships as well as subsea crawlers. All electronics on board the vessels I work on are my responsibility - a physically and mentally demanding job often involving long hours and hard labour. I love it, but I am bored with diamonds and would like to pursue new challenges in the offshore industry.
2. Work Experience - CV/Resume Part 2 [Mandatory]
I am an experienced instrumentation technician with a strong background in advanced hydraulics, pneumatics, and ROVs. I have been working at sea for over thirteen years on deep-water (over 100m/300ft deep) mining vessels for De Beers Marine. For this past year, I have been heavily involved with the commissioning and maintenance of a 270-ton undersea 'crawler' for mining that uses dredging technology at depths up to 150m(450ft) off the west coast of South Africa. I have experience in underwater technologies, particularly subsea connectors, cameras and lighting, depth compensators, and positioning and survey equipment. I also have extensive experience with 'Hyball' and 'Navajo' inspection ROVs. I have been working at sea for over thirteen years on deep-water mining vessels of which over ten years has been on several drillships, using converted drillships from Global Marine's "Glomar" fleet, among others.
I am responsible for all electronics equipment on the vessel and supervise two technicians and a trainee.
While the vessel I am serving on (The mv "Peace In Africa") was being designed and converted, I was assigned to the design team and was instrumental in many of the design decisions. Some of my larger contributions were the assistance in designing a retractable boom for holding the vessel-mounted acoustic survey equipment manufactured by SRD, and overseeing (on behalf of the owners) the conversion of the vessel's Engine Room Management System to a Yokogawa DCS based system for Lloyd's approval. The work was carried out at A&P Tyne's shipyard in Newcastle, UK.
