Proposal Coordinator – Marine

Fugro USA Land

Houston, TX

Job Description

In the ever-demanding offshore sector, asset construction is crucial. Because only when they’re properly constructed can assets work efficiently. And for construction at sea, positioning is a key parameter. With our construction surveys, project management, and positioning skills, we help eliminate the need for redesign during installation. Fugro’s Marine Asset Integrity uses the most stable equipment and software applications to accurately position and carefully construct your assets. To make sure they’re running safely and efficiently, they need regular inspection and monitoring (I&M). Through inspection, we find faults and defects before they become a problem. This prevents the need for costly major repairs. Or even costlier replacements. Whatever your challenge or concerns may be, we tailor our methods to your project. We believe that’s the best way of protecting and fixing the assets.

The Proposal Coordinator will be responsible to develop proposals and cost estimations for our Marine Positioning, Construction and I&M service lines under the guidance and advice of the Commercial Manager. You contribute to and are part of client meetings, business development activities, contract negotiation and bid strategy.
