Nauru Ocean Resources Inc (NORI) in accordance with its exploration contract for polymetallic nodules is offering two (2) at-sea engineering training opportunities to candidates with an engineering degree from an accredited educational institution and interest in marine engineering and the seafloor minerals industry.
The at-sea internship will assist with the testing of NORI’s nodule collection and riser system.
Exact dates and duration will be confirmed closer to the mobilization. The current estimated timeframe and durations are:
1) The first opportunity will mobilize in Europe for Atlantic testing in late December 2021 and the campaign will take place from January – February 2022; and
2) The second opportunity will mobilize in Mexico for the Pacific testing in June 2022 and the campaign will take place from June – August 2022
