Tetra Tech Acquires Applied Science Consultoria (Brazil)

Tetra Tech, Inc. announced that it has acquired coastal and oceanographic consulting firm Applied Science Consultoria Ltda. (ASA Brazil) based in Sao Paulo, Brazil. With the acquisition, ASA Brazil has changed its name to Tetra Tech. The firm has about 50 employees and provides oceanic modeling and engineering services primarily to offshore oil and gas companies.

“Brazil’s oil is primarily located in deep water. This complex environment ideally aligns with Tetra Tech’s coastal and oceanographic expertise. The addition of ASA Brazil’s local knowledge and scientific expertise is an important next step in our Latin American expansion,” said Dan Batrack, Tetra Tech’s Chairman and CEO.

This transaction is Tetra Tech’s second acquisition in Brazil, following the acquisition of the Brazilian mining engineering practice of CRA Engenharia Ltda. in June 2012. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. ASA Brazil is joining Tetra Tech’s Engineering and Consulting Services business segment.

66kV Offshore Wind 2015

The only networking event on 66kV array grids.

66kV Offshore Wind is a technical event for experts in the wind industry. The goal is to provide a clear path to commercial implementation of 66kV array grids. By exploring developer requirements, WTG capabilities and equipment certification, we hope to reduce both uncertainty and time to implementation for 66kV offshore wind.

The conference aims to:

  • Evaluate project requirements to select 66kV inter-arrays
  • Explore turbine requirements for use in 66kV systems
  • Review certification procedures for higher voltage equipment
  • Evaluate the technology and cost impacts on transformers, cables and switchgears
  • Understand the need for reactive power compensation in offshore substations
