Subsea integrity specialist 1 Consulting Subsea Integrity (1CSI) has marked the launch of its business with a move into premises at the James Gregory Centre in the Aberdeen Innovation Park, Bridge of Don.
The company was formed just last month by Matthew Kennedy and Aleksandra Tomaszek.
It is focused on delivering solutions to a wide range of global subsea challenges.
Mr Kennedy, chief executive, has more than 30 years’ experience in nuclear, renewable-energy and subsea integrity work.
Most recently, he spent 10 years working on international projects at oilfield service firm Oceaneering. He is also the originator of Neptune, an innovative subsea ultrasonic inspection tool.
Neptune’s design has since been replicated and continues to be used on flexible and rigid pipeline inspections in deepwater locations around the world.
Mr Kennedy said: “Our industry is emerging from one of the most challenging in its history and 1CSI is an example of a start-up company, backed by sound and extensive experience, which offers a way to increase operational efficiencies in line with the new oil price.
“We’re delighted to have moved into our new office, a fantastic base from which we’ll be able to grow and deliver sound solutions which save time and money.”
Ms Tomaszek is the consultancy’s chief operating Officer and has been working in the oil and gas sector since she achieved her masters degree from Aberdeen University in 2011.
