CSI also has a long-term agreement with a design engineer to perform calculations, designs and drawings necessary for repairs when required.
Anthony Langenhuizen has unique expertise in high pressure cylinders and cryogenic tanks. For nearly 40 years, he has been able to perfect his knowledge and execute projects of all sizes. He is an important player in advancing the field of tube trailer and cryogenic tank repair. Throughout his career, he has worked closely with clients and manufacturers to develop services tailored to their needs. He remains at the forefront of new practices and regulations to maintain a high level of quality and safety in the field of cryogenic gas transportation in North America.
Patrick Laplante has extensive experience having worked for several years in the chemical industry. Jean-François Gauthier was able to use his engineering training to advance the operation and maintenance of cryogenic equipment.
Together, Patrick and Jean-François have participated, directly or indirectly, in all LNG projects in Quebec since 2010. They were involved in the first ferry bunkerings of Société des Traversiers du Québec in Matane. They also took part in the first deliveries of LNG to power natural gas generators at Stornoway Diamonds’s Renard Mine in northern Quebec.

Finally, through its experience, the company offers consulting services on operation and maintenance of equipment and special projects related to liquified or compressed industrial gases.
CSI is very proud to be one of the few businesses in Quebec and Canada working in the cryogenic repair market which is able to compete with United States manufacturers and repair shops. Other than parts that cannot be sourced in Canada, the cryogenic valves for example, CSI is committed to sourcing parts locally and promote suppliers and vendors located in the vicinity of its shop.
