Meet Hans Jelle
Hans Jelle says: “I am Hans Jelle den Boer, 38 years old, married and father of two boys. I have loved technology from an early age. In 2012 I came across with Non-Destructive Testing and have been captivated by it ever since.
Before 2012 I actually knew nothing about the world of research in shipbuilding, pressure vessels, piping and rollercoaster parts, etc. So, as inexperienced as I was, I followed my first NDT course Magnetic Testing (MT). But over the years, I feel completely at home in the world of inspection. In between I worked for another two years at a pressure vessel manufacturer as Quality Control, but in 2020 I returned to MME Group, because of the flexible options and new job position as a Procedure Technician.”
"Within MME Group, I started as a Junior NDT Inspector. In a Caddy, I drove halfway across the country to perform Magnetic, Penetrant, Visual, Ultrasonic, Radiographic, and Eddy Current testing. Over the years, I have gained a lot of experience. That experience now serves me well as I write the procedures that my colleagues use in the field. In addition, I answer technical questions from a very diverse customer base.”
"I spend most of my time writing procedures and processing and keeping up to date with the latest standards. It's not for everyone, but I enjoy it and find it very interesting to dive into a standard and extract what is useful for the investigation. For example, to find out; What conditions are required? What specific requirements must be met according to the end customer? Or why is something not possible at all? In this way, I can help a customer well in the early stages of a project.”
"Occasionally, I still perform special NDT inspections in the field. This is often with an inspector from a classification bureau or with the customer. A while ago, for example, I was allowed to search for a leak in the engine compartment on a luxury yacht in southern France."
What makes you enjoy going to work every day?
“I have a nice varied job and I work in a great team who are all very experienced and helpful. Management is willing to think flexibly to combine your private life and work in a good manner."
