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.

The Best Ideas can be Found in Unusual Places

The energy sector has made great strides in recovering reserves from the deepest depths of the ocean with advanced techniques and technologies.

The demand for more complex solutions to overcome challenges increases daily, as does the desire to develop them.

Investment in research and development (R&D) is key in driving the sector forward but it’s also important that existing technology from both inside and outside the industry is optimised.

At Cortez Subsea we pride ourselves in creative collaboration to provide the best possible service and utilise state-of-the-art technologies for quicker, safer and cleaner solutions.
