Nicola Boulet

Nicola BouletFranceI graduated in 2009 from the Ecole Centrale Marseille, France, with an MSc degree in Naval Engineering. My graduate education included a final year spent in the Ecole Centrale Nantes to develop my skills in naval architecture and hydrodynamics.

My first professional experience was as deputy Planning Engineer in DCNS shipyard in  Brest,  France,where I had the opportunity to experience the specificities and constraints of field works. During two months, I was in charge of the follow-up of specific tasks related to the heavy maintenance of the training ship of the French Navy.

My next position was as Structural Intern Engineer in Bureau Veritas offices, during four months. This position gave me an exposure to a totally new kind of floating structure as well as an opportunity to work for the first time in the Offshore industry.
Now I have been working for almost five years as Naval Engineer within DORIS Engineering, a French engineering company based in Paris. I have been involved in several projects, ranging from offshore windmills installation engineering to offshore unit anchoring system design, at different stages of design and engineering development. I am currently working as Lead Mooring Engineer on a very exciting project for the deep waters of the Gulf of Guinea (offshore West Africa), coordinating a design team, with various cultures working together and many challenges to overcome.

These experiences have allowed me to enlarge my competences by continuously learning new things. I have been given different responsibilities in design positions as well as in coordination positions, in various technical domains and above all, in an international context.

It has been so far a very exciting and challenging career with great opportunities to learn more through very enriching experiences.
