I will be vacating my current position in April and thought I would put a note out to see if anyone would be interested. I’m leaving on good terms, trying to find a equal time spot to be home with the fam more.
Seattle Wa based job, vessel operates in Bering Sea based out of Dutch Harbor
Requires min Chief Engineer Uninspected fishing vessels unlimited HP, no STCW or TWIC req
Vessel is 240’ Pollok factory trawler, 5000 hp Bergen ME, Ulstien red gear w/1800kw shaft gen, 2ea. 1200 KW cummins gensets. Common switch board with woodward GCP30 controls. All engine controls are Automaskin. 150ton R-22 refrigeration plant mycom screw comp. 200mt RO.
Pretty much the entire vessel is automated via networked PLC’s, this was done in house by the other current CE and a previous one, DNV certed and all. It’s probably one of the only boats out there that has system controls programmed by someone experienced in actually using them everyday. You can run or access pretty much everything from one of 4 touch screens in the control rm.
Pro’s - Decent pay, comparable to GOM large OSV, contract w/ guarantee, Great crew, no drama very professional, Company spares no expense on maintaining vessel (It literally gets repainted every 6 months, learn to love needle guns) no issue supplying spares etc, Lots of equipment and systems to work on, never get bored.
Con’s - Its a 2-1 rotation, 8 months on the boat a year, this may change in the future but for now this is what it is. Limited benefits
If you are interested or want more details email the head of HR Ruthie Anderson firstname.lastname@example.org
I can answer general questions about the boat or position via PM, but none about pay etc.
