CSA Ocean Sciences Inc. (CSA), a US-based marine environmental consulting firm, today announced a new partnership with Cepemar Soluções Ambientais (Cepemar) to serve the growing needs of the ocean and offshore industries in Brazil and South America. The partnership will operate under the banner of CSA’s Brazilian subsidiary, CSA Ciências Oceânicas (CSACO).
“This is an exciting development for the CSA group of companies as Brazil is an important part of our growth strategy,” said CSA CEO Kevin Peterson. “As we seek to build our capabilities in the region, Cepemar’s successful track record and reputation as an industry leader in providing environmental solutions ideally complements our international subject matter expertise and network of operational hubs.”
Founded in 1970, CSA brings 50 years of marine environmental experience to the partnership, including eight years of operating locally through CSACO. Cepemar contributes over 40 years of success as a leader in providing integrated onshore and offshore environmental management solutions in Brazil.
“There are a number of core synergies between CSA and Cepemar,” according to Nelson Saldanha, CEO of Cepemar. “By pooling our resources, equipment and expertise, CSA Ciências Oceânicas will offer clients a fully-integrated approach to marine environmental consultancy here in Brazil and throughout South America.”
The new partnership will focus on the Brazilian nearshore, offshore and deep-water energy, infrastructure, and scientific markets by offering a comprehensive portfolio of marine consultancy services that include oceanographic, geophysical, environmental data collection, processing and analysis as well as environmental baseline and environmental impact studies.
CSACO will operate from a new office in Vitoria, in the state of Espirito Santo, Brazil.
