TSC Subsea, a global specialist in remotely deployed subsea NDT inspections for the energy industry, is entering 2023 with plans to target new markets in the Middle East, Africa and South East Asia.
The strategic growth plans follow one of the company’s most successful years to date, in which the company established new bases in Brazil and Australia and grew its global workforce by more than 30% in response to increasing demand for its tools and services . The year also marked the company’s entry into new sectors, including offshore wind and flow assurance.
Staff growth continued a trend set in the previous year, when TSC saw headcount increase by more than 40% in 2021. The growth trajectory is expected to continue over the coming year as new regions come online and activity continues to accelerate across all sectors.
2022 also saw the development of several new innovative technologies that provided solutions in the subsea sector, including the Acoustic Resonance Technology (ART) vPush, an industry first in acoustic deep water hydrate sensing, and winner of the Best Subsea Project award for 2022 of the Pipeline Industry Guild.
As the market continues to embrace advanced diverless inspection solutions, the company is seeing rapid adoption of the new solutions it is developing, and many campaigns now span multiple TSC technologies.
Following the success of the first wind industry campaign on behalf of Ocean Breeze Energy GmbH (OBE) to perform critical diverless weld inspections at the BARD Offshore1 wind farm using its ACFM® Node ScannerTMTSC continues to adapt and develop Subsea solutions to support the offshore wind sector.
Growth in 2H22 was led by a new leadership team with Stuart Kenny as new president and Rhys Slattery as operations director at the company.
“I am excited to see the success achieved in 2022 and the continued impact it will have in supporting our ambitious 2023 growth plans,” said Kenny.
“Having established ourselves as the market leader for the subsea supply of ACFM and ART, we were proud to launch Advanced Ultrasonic and Pulsed Eddy Current capabilities in 2022. We strongly believe that these additional NDT modalities will take TSC Subsea to the next level of our growth strategy. .
“With expert knowledge of all NDT methods and a team of expert mechanical design engineers, we are perfectly equipped to provide solutions for the most challenging integrity problems. In the coming year, we will maintain a strong focus on growth in all our regions and through the continued development of our technologies. We currently have a number of solutions in development to address the many market challenges facing the energy sector and we look forward to bringing them to market.”
