Position: Rigger Foreman

Introduction

Hi,

My name is Vlad, I am 39 years young and I live in Latvia. I’ve started my offshore career in 2007. Since that time I’ve been involved in different projects all over the world. I have visited five continents and some really remote places such as Tasmania, Tahiti, Azores, Faroe islands and it was a really great thing to do…
Most of these years I was engaged in wind farms jobs such as construction, heavy lifting, piling, grouting, cable pooling and even diving 😁 And the best thing about it was the people whom I have met and worked with. It’s really cool to be a part of a team having one aim, one goal and to work with a professionals. And at that point working with Helder Maritiem is the best combination for me. I am always confident that the office crew will take care of me as much as possible. So I can really focus on my job what is increasing safety a lot as a result.

So have a safe and productive 2021 🤓

Best regards
Vlad
