Field Technician

EEL’s field technicians work around the world on geotechnical and geophysical
projects and are a key part of our team.

Field technicians are responsible for keeping our equipment in full working
condition on the site that they are assigned to. This includes ensuring parts pass
the manufacture’s daily tests and EEL’s routine tests.

Field technicians are also responsible for mobilising, demobilising, and operating
our geophysical and geotechnical equipment. This includes, but is not limited to,
recorders, hydrophone arrays, positioning and levelling systems, cone penetration
test (CPT) systems, and vibrocorers and box corers.

When not in the field, technicians are based at our headquarters in Beccles, Suffolk.
Here they support our technical services manager, maintaining, servicing and
preparing equipment for projects.
