Meet the Team – Chief Engineer Richard Odera

April 2019

Richard is one of our longest-serving crew members.  Schooled in Kenya before graduating from the Dar es Salaam Maritime Institute, Tanzania, he joined the SVS group in 2011 and has enjoyed steady advancement and progression to Chief Engineer through our career transition training scheme.

He has gained valuable experience across a wide range of vessel types and classes, successfully completing the appropriate professional courses and qualifications along the way. 

As well as serving onboard our fleet and becoming an expert in the care and maintenance of the Damen vessels, Richard has enjoyed considerable success ashore as a Technical Superintendent, responsible for the operation, maintenance and management of up to twelve vessels engaged in a variety of inshore, coastal and offshore projects. 

He has also managed and overseen a large number of Dry Docking projects for us.

Now one of our most qualified Chief Engineers, Richard is still very much a ‘hands-on’ character, regularly tackling the most complex tasks including major overhauls and main assembly replacements.

At home in Kenya he is part of a proud farming heritage, where his engineering skills are welcome and put to good use with the various agricultural implements and machinery. 

Equally at home at the controls of a tractor, or in the engine room of a sea-going vessel, Richard is a key member of the Admiral Offshore team and will be an important factor in our continued growth and success.

Admiral Offshore recognise the importance of investing in the training, qualification and employment from the workforce of the countries where we work, and have similar crew trained, qualified and employed from Ghana, Indonesia and now Nigeria.
