Now working for Allseas

Posted by Ingmar Hendriks on 9 January 2014

Since the 31 of december 2013 i have ended my employment at CGI, and thus also stopped working for ESA Galileo, to find a new challange that better suits my ambitions. I have found a new position within the company Allseas as an embedded software engineer in their innovations department in Eindhoven.

Allseas is one of the largest offshore pipelay companies with 2000 employees. The company is privately owned by founder Edward Heerema.

Founded in 1985, the Dutch firm Allseas is headquartered in Châtel-Saint-Denis, Switzerland, and has offices in The Netherlands, Belgium, USA, Australia, UK, Portugal and India.

Allseas operates three pipelay vessels (the Audacia, the Lorelay and the Solitaire), one support/trenching vessel (the Calamity Jane), one survey ship (the Manta), and one pontoon (the Tog Mor). Allseas in 2007 took the decision to build a new pipelay and offshore platform-removal ship Pieter Schelte, which is scheduled to enter service in 2014. At 382 metres (1,253 ft) in length and 117 metres (384 ft) in width, it will be the largest ship by area ever built.

My work includes ofcource programming but also electronics and thus building new solutions for the process of laying pipelines or other ship operations.
