The Association of Diving Contractors International (ADCI) recently elected a new member to its Engineering Diving Committee — COWI Marine North America’s (COWI Marine NA) Joseph Acosta. As the first ever non-engineer to be elected, Joseph brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Committee. Joseph was also instrumental in getting COWI Marine NA accepted as a General member.
Joseph has been a member of the ADCI’s East Coast Chapter since 1996 and with COWI Marine NA since 2013, currently holding the position of Field Operations Manager. With over 17 years of experience in condition evaluations, non-destructive testing, timber coring, underwater still and video photography, and report preparation, Joseph has extensive experience working for private clients and governmental agencies, such as the US Navy and US Coast Guard. Some of his most recent and notable projects include the Excelon Mystic Generating Station Bulkhead repair design inspection in Boston, the Southwest Brooklyn Marine Transfer Station above water and underwater inspection in Brooklyn, and the Consolidated Edison Company repair design inspection of the 74th St. Generating Station in New York.
We congratulate Joseph on this amazing accomplishment and are proud that he is able to represent COWI Marine North America at such a prestigious and international level.
