Me, a perfectionist? I don’t really have a choice. In our job everything has to be accurate, otherwise no one knows what is really going on during the works. Surveyors provide detailed maps and volume calculations for dredging projects. The operation colleagues base their entire dredging strategy on this information. Hence, it should not surprise you that we perform some of the calibrations five or even six times in order to work as accurately as possible.
Immediately after my training I worked on a reclamation project in Uruguay. Almost all possible dredging techniques were used there, which made it very instructive and interesting. I soon gained the confidence to work more independently on a few smaller projects, which gave me an enormous boost.
