Providing MetStations to oil rigs and platforms
I have worked up from installing met stations on oil rigs to become a project engineer – working onshore managing the build and design of offshore met stations and oceanographic buoys.
I am also involved with both software and website design to display these data in realtime on www.fugroweather.com.
My Typical Day
Check existing projects are still ‘live’; and check progress of projects
I come in and check on any systems that I am involved are still running. Check support emails as am involved in frontline support.
Check on status of project build sand necessary paperwork involved.
What I'd do with the money
Provide Raspberry PI based weather stations
Providing raspberry PI based weather stations to school we enable the learning of instrument interaction and display of data and learning of coding.
