Getting to know our Technical Manager - Debasis Behera

Debasis Behera has been working with Unique Group since 2019 as Technical Manager for its Survey and Marine divisions in Mumbai, India.

Q1. How long have you been working in the industry?

I have been working in the industry for over 13 years now. My experience ranges from installation of all microprocessor-based equipment through to maintenance, calibration, and setting up of all hydrographic equipment. Prior to joining Unique Group, I worked in diverse roles for companies such as IIC TECHNOLOGIES PVT. LTD., SM CONSULTANT BHUBANESHWAR, GMIPL, EGS SUREVY INDIA PVT. LTD. among many others.

Q2. What does a typical day for you look like at Unique Group?

While no two days are the same, I would say a typical day is spent in the development of Project Technical Specifications and warehouse maintenance. I also oversee the smooth operation of onsite jobs for different survey and marine clients. This requires attention to detail and involves interaction with the Sales teams which I thoroughly enjoy.

Q3. What are your key areas of specialisation?

Project management as well as the maintenance, calibration, troubleshooting & setting up of all hydrographic equipment are my key areas of specialisation.

Q4. What is your favorite learning experience at Unique Group?

Each day is a new learning experience, be it business-related or working with a newly launched product line. There is a multitude of systems and products that the Group deals with, and so, each day brings an interesting learning experience.

Q5. What sustainability initiatives are you implementing as an individual?

In an era where there is a major focus on climate change and environmental issues, it is important for every individual to think about the various sustainability initiatives they can implement in driving the change towards a more sustainable future. Personally, I have greatly reduced plastic consumption and the usage of printed papers.

Q6. Tell us about your key achievements in your professional career (ideally one).

One of the key highlights of my professional career was being a part of SAVA 2017 in Finland when I was working with IIC TECHNOLOGIES. Being a part of the technical team, I managed the mobilisation, planning, online survey & processing, and the presentation of data. Considering the time restraints and numerous challenges for finding out the route for waterway navigation at an unknown location, it remains one of the most challenging projects I have been a part of.

Q7. Tell us about a key project you worked on at Unique Group.

Recently, we successfully completed a geophysical survey project for a reputed organisation of the Indian Government. Working with a team of scientists during this project was highly educational and satisfying.

Q8. What do you specifically do to maintain the professional/personal life balance?

I strongly believe that successful people plan their work and then work their plan. There is a constant work-life balance achieved if you follow this mantra. We have one life, and so have one date planner. This is the tool by which I turn my priorities and goals into reality.
I am a result-oriented person which means I often find myself spending more time on the execution of projects. My productivity is in relation to customer satisfaction. And I believe that by making our personal life a priority, our productivity and effectiveness on the job will also increase.
