Kelso Riddell is Managing Director of Ocean Instruments Ltd, which represents manufacturers of scientific instruments in oceanology, hydrology, topography and geophysics. The main ones are McLane Research Labs, Seapoint Sensors, Zebra-Tech, Nortek, Valeport, Aquaread and the Guideline Geo group (ABEM and MALA).

His previous company manufactures underwater navigation and positioning systems and oceanographic instruments. He has forty years of experience in submarine exploration projects, installation of platforms, coastal and deep oceanology from the arctic to tropical zones. His company was the first to manufacture a current meter with solid state memory, and one of the first acoustic doppler current profilers.

He has relationships with many instrument manufacturers for oceanology, hydrology and topography, so he can help with all kinds of projects, including land survey.

Kelso knows Cuba well from end to end. He is the only person who has been up the lighthouses at  the capes of Maisi and San Antonio.

In a manned submersible he has descended to 8,500m deep!
