MEMBER NEWS: STC INSISO adds to its portfolio of North American clients with latest contract win

Aberdeen-headquartered, STC INSISO has announced a contract win with Pilot Water Solutions (PWS) to deliver its investigation and assurance product, COMET Investigate.

The United States based water midstream operator wished to improve their understanding of undesirable events and near misses, and ultimately reduce incident frequency, which resulted in its team’s decision to purchase STC INSISO’s root cause analysis tool.

PWS joins STC INSISO’s growing portfolio of clients based in North America which includes Cummins, McDermott and Texas based oil and gas operator, Western Midstream.

STC INSISO specialise in helping businesses across a range of industries to control risk and assure operations. Although the majority of the team support their international customer base from the company’s Aberdeen headquarters, several staff work remotely from overseas locations.

While the company continues to pursue further opportunities in North America, consideration is also being given to recruiting a Business Development Manager in the Texas region.

Mark Rushton, Chief Executive Officer at STC INSISO, said: “It is an exciting time for the company as we grow our presence in North America and welcome another valued international customer. I am extremely proud of the team behind COMET, which has existed for just over a decade and continues to evolve each year in terms of the product’s capabilities and the range of clients which we serve.”

In addition to the contract win with PWS, STC INSISO now has a commercial and innovation partnership in place with Texas-based, McDermott. The engineering and construction company has contributed to the development of invaluable functionality within the COMET platform and assisted STC INSISO in winning new business.

COMET Investigate is a world-leading methodology, training package and online solution for incident investigation, root cause analysis and incident prevention, built by a team with over 400 years of investigative experience and heritage. For more information, click here.

AREG is the original energy transition organisation, working on behalf of members to empower the energy supply chain and champion its expertise. Please get in touch if you have any questions or would like to find out more about membership.

AREG has played an important role in the growth of Scotland’s renewable energy sector, engaging the supply chain and developing the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. However, we are only at the very beginning of the transition that AREG was established to both lead and support so there are still opportunities for companies to get into the constantly evolving renewables supply chain. We look forward to continuing our work together as renewables builds on its place as Scotland’s main source of power, and as we seek to deliver real change in the crucial areas of heat and transport.

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has worked closely with AREG since its formation. The recent progress in the developments of offshore wind projects by Equinor and Vattenfall are as a result of the work of the group over many years. The north-east is known as the oil and gas capital of Europe. At the Chamber, we believe the region must evolve its position to being recognised as the energy capital. Whilst hydrocarbons will continue to be essential in driving our economy for years to come, the generation of renewable resources will play an increasingly important role in providing cost-effective power, innovative development and economic growth.

The enthusiasm and dedication of the early group that would become AREG was fundamental in us choosing to launch All-Energy in Aberdeen. The first tiny show was held in 2001, and AREG’s Chairman at the time, Jeremy Cresswell, played such an active role that I often describe him in terms such as All-Energy’s ‘midwife’. All-Energy is now the UK’s largest renewable and low carbon energy exhibition and conference in terms of number of attendees, space booked, and number of exhibiting companies. As AREG became firmly established, their presence and support for the event grew spectacularly over the years. We thank them most sincerely for their invaluable input.


Vattenfall has forged a strong working relationship with AREG through the development of the European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre. AREG has worked tirelessly on behalf of the North East and it can take enormous credit for the growth of sustainable energy in the region and the path it has cleared for the region to capture further investment.


Aberdeen City and Shire is emerging as a key location for renewables by successfully transferring its world-class oil and gas expertise into the sector and AREG has done much to advance this through a broad range of initiatives. It has acted as a catalyst in driving further investment in the local economy by engaging with companies, Government, public bodies and existing projects and we have been pleased to support their efforts. Scottish Enterprise will continue to engage with AREG as we increase Scotland’s use of renewable energy.
