In a collaborative effort to enhance our Quality Management System (QMS), Ocean Specialists, Inc. (OSI) has committed to pursuing ISO9001:2015 Quality Management System certification—an internationally recognized set of standards. A QMS is a set of policies, procedures, and processes required for the planning and execution of key business functions within an organization, primarily those that impact client requirements.
CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), a marine environmental consulting firm, and HWCG LLC, a consortium of 18 offshore oil and gas operators, collaborated on the design of a deepwater sampling and monitoring equipment program to support the environmental needs of the offshore industry. The equipment program remains containerized, on standby, and ready to be immediately mobilized in the event a deepwater blowout occurs in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.
OSI continue supporting the SACS project as part of our turn-key contract with Angola Cables and we are glad to see important provisioning agreements, such as with IOX, take shape ahead of the upcoming RFS phase.
IOX Cable and Angola Cables have announced the signing of a joint provisioning agreement aimed at developing and enhancing their respective network capabilities and services across the Americas, Africa, Europe and India. By partnering with Angola Cables, IOX is consolidating its position by extending its network to Europe, South America and North America for the benefit of its customers through cable systems operated by Angola Cables.
The installation of the first direct link between Africa and South America is nearing completion. The wet-plant installation is progressing in accordance to the plan and the cables will arrive in Brazil at the beginning of February 2018. Construction works of the landing station/data center in Fortaleza, Brazil is also progressing well.
OSI continues our support of Tonga Cable Limited’s subsea cable projects, which initially included the international cable and now includes TCLs domestic extension as well. Installation of the domestic cable to Ha’apai and Vava’u was successfully completed on Jan 10, with testing and commissioning planned for the coming weeks. Congratulations TCL Team!!!!
