Message from our MD

I hope that you and those close to you are keeping safe and well during this difficult time.  We are all facing these challenges together, both as a nation and as an industry.

The global pandemic of Covid-19, and another drop in oil price, means our sector is set to be tested.

Since Cortez Subsea was founded in 2011, we knew that working together would be the key to our successes. We are continuing to work with our partners and customers globally, while monitoring government guidance very closely and updating our policies so we can provide this support safely.

Creativity during Coronavirus

It has long been accepted that to foster creativity we need to keep moving, change things up, switch locations.  Obama became famous for walking meetings to foster better solutions and conversations.

While finding a singular workspace boosts focus and readies your brain for work - having spaces designated for creativity is also helpful.  I don’t know about you, but not many people come up with their best ideas sitting at their desk.

Like the human eye, without the human risk

Mankind has been fascinated by the depths of the ocean since the dawn of time.  Greek mythology surrounding the Lost City of Atlantis is as well known today as it was in the days of Aristotle.  Scientists say more is known about the surface of the moon than our own ocean floor.

But technology in the energy sector advances at an astonishing rate.  Cortez Subsea was founded in 2011 and is now part of a three-strong group of companies with offices in the UK, Malaysia and Egypt.  Our sister companies, Deeptech and MCS, are specialists in remote operations and software which, coupled with our project delivery, brings our NuWave Inspection services into the digital age.
