A Message From the CEO

/
We are a small company, but we are a Global company. We have travelled to every corner of the world, so we get the big picture. We are not naive and we know better than most that affecting change is no easy task. It takes courage, it takes smarts, it takes caring, it takes perseverance – but I think above all we have come to realise the most powerful and resonant force is personal – how each of us chooses to live this life. The choices we make every day as individuals in our personal and professional lives – the choices that sustain our integrity, our respect, our honesty, and as importantly our empathy and humility.

Meet SAMIR

/
SAMIR – Semi-Autonomous Mooring Inspection Robot Unlike most acronyms ‘SAMIR’ actually means something. Beyond the acronym for ‘Semi-Autonomous Mooring Inspection Robot’, Samir is a Sandskrit word for ‘Amiable’ companion.

Pass, Shoot, Score!

/
Welaptega recently scored an opportunity to support youth and the local community with a donation to the Brookfield Atom 1 Elks hockey team. The monies donated supported participation in the Bedford Tournament where the Atom 1 Elks team went undefeated in all three games. This winning streak continued and they secured the silver medal in the Middleton Tournament and were invited to play at the Halifax Scotiabank Centre during the Hockey Day in Canada celebrations.

Welaptega Makes the Rounds in Brazil

/
Next week Welaptega heads to Brazil to meet with various operators, ROV contractors, and potential agents. As our capabilities and capacity grow, we are able to provide more markets with improved operational resilience. With more than 20 years of mooring inspection experience under its belt...

Subsea Cleaning Kit

/
Our Chain Flail cleaning system has been used in offshore operations worldwide since 2010. The system is designed for efficient cleaning of heavy marine growth from mooring chains and other subsea components. A need has surfaced to allow more flexibility in the cleaning head and to reduce the vibration experienced by ROV manipulators during deployment.

Winter Weather and North Sea Projects

/
When members of our operations team head for offshore projects in warmer climates, in the likes of Abu Dhabi, Australia and West Africa, there is the added bonus these projects bring with them of having some agreeable conditions that contrast the snow-ridden streets and sidewalks of Halifax.
The Importance of Well-Trained Inspection Personnel

The Importance of Well-Trained Inspection Personnel

/
With oil prices falling 50% in the past six months, operators are finding efficiencies to reduce operational budgets. One of the best ways to reduce routine OPEX for floating production units is by making efficient use of ROV vessel time and identifying anomalies before they become major risks.

Welaptega Data Collection System Upgrade

/
Mooring system integrity verification requires the acquisition and collation of a number of diverse data sets from inspection tools including subsea and in-air systems. We collect a wide variety of data offshore from subsea ROV-based measurement systems, sensor packages and cameras.

Social skate with the Welaptega team

/
With winter still in full swing, a few of the Welaptega team decide to make the most of the most recent cold snap and used their lunch hour to go skate (and in some cases stumble) their way round the local skating rink.

Oil Price Speculation

/
It’s like the weather in Canada in winter – everyone is talking about it! The oil price. What is it about that perennial yoyo that brings the speculators out in all of us? Opinions are rife – ‘its for the long-term’, ‘it’ll recover by summer’, ‘it’s Putin and the Ukraine’. And as Welaptega is in the international energy game it seems everyone canvases you like you must have sayer-like insights. Ha.

Welaptega achieves ISO 9001:2008 certification

/
The quality management system established by the Welaptega team for certification to the ISO 9001:2008 standard evolved naturally, organically and elegantly from core processes which were developed over the past 10 years to ensure the integrity of our mooring inspection services.
