Here at 1CSI, it has been all hands to the pump putting the final touches to the TIAMATTM ultrasonic inspection tool. Whilst we have been in the thick of it, most things have taken a back seat, but we just had to take a moment to let you know some exciting news for 2022. In January, we were thrilled to be nominated as finalists for the Subsea Expo Awards in the Cross Sector innovation category!

Subsea Expo Award Finalists – Cross Sector Innovation category

Cross sector innovation is a new award category at the Subsea Expo Awards for 2022. We felt that it was a perfect fit for the work we have done to develop, build, and commercialise TIAMAT.

In the development of TIAMAT, we have brought together international expertise from across the robotics, subsea, underwater technology, and precision manufacturing industries. The collaboration we led will soon bring our game-changing subsea inspection innovation to life.

TIAMAT – Innovative multi phase array subsea inspection technology

Our next-generation alternative to traditional ultrasonic inspection techniques, TIAMAT is a portable, compact, easy to deploy system, developed to provide reliable, multi-phase array ultrasonic subsea inspection. From the beginning, we have focused on increasing the quantity and quality of inspection data collected on a normal run. For a sneak peek at TIAMAT in action, read our blog post from 2021 or visit the NZTC YouTube channel.

Subsea Expo Awards 2022

The awards ceremony, organized by the Global Underwater Hub, will take place on February 23, 2022, at P&J Live in Aberdeen. The awards coincide with Subsea Expo, which will return to Aberdeen in 2022. This year’s event has the theme of Oceans of Opportunity and will debate and examine how the industry can capitalize on the opportunities within the blue economy, estimated to be worth $3trillion by 2030.  

Recognising cross-industry collaboration in innovation

We are so proud of TIAMAT and, whatever the outcome, just to be nominated as Subsea Expo Awards Finalists is a great honour. This nomination has come as a result of the truly collaborative nature of our development process, and TIAMAT’s genuine cross-industry applicability.

Good luck to all of the nominees on the night!
