UESI provides specialized engineering, consulting, inspection, maintenance, repair, and construction services to customers worldwide.  Our services cover assets located both above and below the water and support operating facilities as well as facilities undergoing decommissioning.  We have the capability and resources to respond rapidly to emergent work, perform large scale turnkey projects, and support multi-year service contracts. 

UESI provides multi-disciplined consulting and engineering services and is able to address a wide range of challenges facing the industries we serve.  Our in-house resources include professional engineers, expert consultants, divers, inspectors, technicians, and construction specialists.

UESI Inspection plans are developed in cooperation with the Owner, Operator, or Licensee so that they are specific to the needs of the facility. Inspection programs comprehensively assess a structure and its operating components.  Data is compiled to address both maintenance and regulatory issues and create a targeted maintenance or repair plan.

UESI has extensive experience in performing repair and maintenance work on wood, steel, and concrete structures.  With our in-house engineering capability, we are able to address the design/build needs of complex repair or maintenance requirements.  With our highly skilled dive teams and construction specialists, these services are easily applied to challenging problems often facing facility owners and operators.  

UESI offers some of its most specialized services to the nuclear power industry.  We regularly perform nuclear safety related services under our NUPIC audited 10 CFR 50, Appendix B, Quality Assurance Program.  These services include maintenance, retrofits, spent fuel pool services, coating assessment and application, work on reactor vessel internals, underwater ASME Code welding, plasma arc cutting, electronic/exothermic cutting, specialized coating and corrosion control services, nondestructive examinations, ASME Section XI, condition assessment & failure analysis, and training and qualification services.  The level of rigor and integrity with which UESI approaches its nuclear safety related work carries over into all of our services.

Our Commitment to Safety

At UESI we believe that – ‘Safety is No Accident’.  The safety and health of UESI employees, customers, and stakeholders is crucial to the success of any project and stands at the center of UESI’s core values.  UESI’s commitment to safety ensures that we meet or exceed all OSHA and Association of Diving Contractors International (ACDI) standards applicable to diving and marine construction.  UESI management ensures that employees and their supervisors understand their role in protecting themselves, coworkers, customers, the general public, and the environment against harm.  

Every UESI employee has ultimate ‘Stop Work Authority’ to halt any unsafe work activity. We are dedicated to providing a safe workplace where employees feel free and empowered to report any and all safety concerns.  UESI’s management is committed to promoting a safety culture that ensures a safety conscious work environment.  Nothing a manager or supervisor is doing is more important than addressing a safety concern.
