Polarcus successfully achieved last month the important recruitment milestone of 100 employees, ahead of schedule, including the experienced maritime and seismic crew required to operate its first 12 streamer seismic vessel to be launched this autumn.
Paul Hanna, SVP Human Resources, commenting on the milestone achievement said: "By offering a first rate compensation and benefits package, together with the opportunity to be a part of an exciting and dynamic team, we have been able to attract an extremely talented and multi cultural workforce of industry professionals. The Polarcus story has clearly struck a positive chord throughout the industry resulting in a high level of enquiries and applications."
"This is a fantastic achievement" commented Rolf Ronningen, CEO Polarcus "and clearly demonstrates that we will be ready as planned for our first operations. In particular, the calibre of the maritime and seismic crew recruited will help us ensure that we meet the high targets we have set ourselves for both service delivery and environmental performance."
