Press release   •   May 24, 2019 08:30 CEST

46 MARTEC students stopped by ESVAGT's suits department on their tour of the shipping company's premises.

At the beginning of May, 46 students from the maritime training school MARTEC participated in a visit to ESVAGT.

The visit included a tour of the ‘Esvagt Innovator’ and a stop at ESVAGT’s workshop and suits department before rounding off with a presentation about ESVAGT at the office and another vessel tour – this time on the ‘Esvagt Celeste’.

Laura, Chief Officer on the ‘Esvagt Innovator’, described daily life on board the vessel and the many different tasks which the ‘Esvagt Innovator’ performs for Hess on the South Arne field. The students were very impressed by the vessels’ condition and not least the zest and positive atmosphere they were met with on board.

This resulted in applications which started rolling into ESVAGT’s recruitment database shortly after the students had returned home. ESVAGT has received applications from a mix of ordinary seamen, skilled able seamen and HF Søfart (ordinary seamen with a Higher Preparatory Examination Course) and already during the visit, some of the students clearly expressed that they hoped to be invited to a job interview, held at MARTEC this week.
