NDT inspections specialist TSC Subsea has opened a new base in Rio de Janeiro as part of its plans to expand across Brazil and further into Latin America.
TSC Subsea had so far supported Brazil remotely but decided to open a permanent base in response to increased operations.
The company, which has bases in the UK and Norway, appointed Fabio Puga to the new role of country manager.
Puga will recruit a country-based team to progress the company’s plans for strategic growth across the region
TSC Subsea said it is currently working on multiple long-term contracts with major operators in Brazil, one of which was recently extended for another year, and has also identified numerous opportunities for growing its technology and solutions in the wider region.
”We see huge potential for TSC Subsea in the Brazil market as there is a strong demand for deep and shallow water remotely deployed advance inspection technology that provides high accuracy inspections to maintain operators’ asset integrity,” said Paul Cooper, president of TSC Subsea.
“This is in line with our goal of improving both technical safety of the assets and HSE for personnel by reducing the needs for diver deployment.”
