Scott is a Haligonian (hails from Halifax) who spent his summers kayaking competitively and his winters at the hockey rink. After high school, Scott received a Certificate in Applied Science from Acadia and then graduated with a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering from Dalhousie. The decision to pursue a career in engineering was an easy one for Scott since his father and uncle are both engineers and from an early age he has been interested in learning how things worked (picture the toaster in a million pieces).
After graduating from Dalhousie, Scott headed south and for five months he backpacked his way around Latin and South America. From Guatemala to the southern tip of Argentina, Scott experienced everything from scuba diving and sand boarding, to sled dog excursions and mountain climbing. Says Scott, "My time spent abroad was a life changing experience and a trip I'll never forget."
During his time working with Encana, Scott was involved in company engineering surveillance and coordination of the mechanical-based equipment and packages for the Production Field Centre (PFC). As part of his role on the Deep Panuke Project, Scott travelled to San Diego to participate in a factory acceptance test for key PFC equipment including a gas turbine generator being used to power the platform and the feed gas compressor. Scott continued to oversee mechanical elements through the design, build, and testing phases to be ready for installation.
Being able to stay in his native Nova Scotia and work on the Deep Panuke Project meant a lot to Scott. "The ability to work on such a large scale project, encompassing companies from all over the globe was quite incredible. It was an opportunity to gain exposure to a very unique and technically advanced industry and work with people who have tremendous amounts of experience and knowledge. I valued this phenomenal career opportunity to grow and develop my skills as a mechanical engineer."
Building on his experience at Deep Panuke, Scott moved on to join Welaptega Marine Ltd. in January 2011 as a Business Development Engineer. His role will involve supporting the business functions as well as offshore project work around the globe.
