Its a steady run, done for by Oceanex for many years. They have have several vessel, newish, and a older one. About ten years ago, i was impressed by the equipment and support when I went onboard touring. Ive never heard anything negative, or many comments at all except for my own, positive observations.

Greetings, I am also interested in some information regarding this companies fleet.

I see they have postings for engineers and junior engineers, and none for Engine room assistance?

Does this company use non licence junior engineers for day work as engine room rating? Also what's the pay and schedule like? Is it similar to what's offered in the Great Lakes $400-470/day?

Thanks for the help

I don't know the answer to your question Chief, but most Canadian companies have been been pretty successful at crewing to the minimum manning, which is usually holders of CoC. You would think that keeping ratings would be a great place to start a career, and ascertain individuals of value to the company, but that doesn't seem to be the case anymore, and perhaps the reason with the overall shortage of engineers.

I believe Oceanex does have ratings in the engine room, but bare minimum, preferring to hire outside contractors for special projects.That's been my experience in that market.
