Recently established Aberdeen-based subsea integrity consultancy, 1CSI (1 Consulting Subsea Integrity) 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 established in April by Matthew Kennedy and Aleksandra Tomaszek and offers solutions to global subsea challenges. This, includes, but is not limited to, fit-for-purpose assessments of deep water flexible risers through the inspection of concrete coated subsea pipelines, to ROV deployed examination of subsea welds inside offshore wind turbine monopiles.
Matthew Kennedy, the company CEO, holds over 30 years of experience within the nuclear, renewable and subsea integrity industries. Most recently, he spent ten years at Oceaneering where he delivered numerous international projects. Matthew was also the originator of Neptune, an innovative ROV deployed, subsea ultrasonic inspection tool. Neptune’s design has since been replicated and continues to be deployed on flexible and rigid pipeline inspections in deep water locations around the world.
Of the 1CSI launch, Matthew 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. We believe that there’s a real gap in the market for our expertise and we’re excited about the many potential projects and challenges that could benefit from 1CSI.”
Aleksandra Tomaszek is the consultancy’s Chief Operating Officer and has been working in the oil and gas sector since she achieved her MBA from the University of Aberdeen in 2011. Her latest role was a Subsea Integrity Project Manager at Oceaneering.
Aleksandra said: “As well as offering realistic solutions, we believe that sharing knowledge is key to the future of our industry and appreciate that often impartial advice is required. Being well-versed in the field of subsea integrity, industry innovations, trends and the current offerings, we’re excited to offer sound advice built on many years of experience, and encourage those looking for market-leading consultancy to get in touch.”
