CV, IRATA L2 blaster and painter looking for work

I am currently available for work
Serial No: 7633

List top 5 skills: handyman, irata
Short Bio:

I'm IRATA L2 rope access technician, I live in Poland, now I work for one of only two polish IRATA operators companies - Climbex SA.
You have a full list of work I've done at my CV but I would like to briefly describe last ones.
Climbex isn't company that cleans windows, our work are far more "harsh and difficult". Most of Climbex work takes place in power plants, ironworks, cement and paper factories, etc. - these are very dirty works. Most of time during last few months I spend in Bogatyna power plant where me and my friends were vacuuming construction and equipment. We use KOKS MegaVac vacuum loading system - Climbex is only one company in Poland (and one of the few in Europe) with so much hardware to do such work. We were vacuuming main building construction, every pipes, interior of cyclons, siphons, boilers, air smoke ducts and elektrofilters.
One of my most interesting work was vacuuming and water cleaning of one elektrofilter in Skawina power plant. First stage was vacumming the interior of elektrofilter's funnels with use rope access (about 8 meters height). Very requiering was entry to the each funnel (there was a total of six) - I had to squeeze between electrodes and steel partitions of elektrofilters. Second stage was cleaning electrodes, partitions and funnels by water with use firehose, water from funnels was sucked out by our KOKS MegaVac turned into wet suck mode.
I work for Climbex for six months and it's time for change. I spent two weeks in Aberdeen making offshore tickets - I completed BOSIET and MISTcourses. Additionally I completed OPITO Blaster/Painter course to gain knowledge about safe blasting and painting.
I'm rope access technician experienced in industrial rope access, familiar with lots of construction around, hot pipes (some extremely hot - 700 C), sharp edges etc.
I want to develop, learn new things and gain offshore experience.

Painting job half to half with construction fixing – a lot of grinding and tightening the screws of superstructure with most expensive hand tool I’ve ever carried, electric torque wrench: http://www.losomat.co.uk/en/products/electric-torque-wrench

• Wall insulation with light–wet method (17 m h) – 160 m2 in a very difficult access – it was expansion gap between

After that just pointing/grouting (using Point Master and standard methods), delicate sand blasting, preassure cleaning (inside also), exterior acid cleaning, color merging, painting of earlier removed clamping rings, impregnation, clamping rings montage and finally done 150 m2 in EIT+ research center in Wroclaw.
