McDermott International, Inc. has announced it has relocated its Subsea Center of Excellence from Epsom in Surrey to Bedfont Lakes office park near Feltham in London.

The move follows the recent award of the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim Natural Gas Project, located offshore Mauritania and Senegal. McDermott and BHGE were awarded subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) and subsea production system (SPS) equipment contracts by BP. The subsea engineering team as well as other support office areas from McDermott will be located in the new office.

“The relocation of our subsea office positions us well for the successful execution of recent project awards and enables us to expand our subsea offering to meet projected growth,” says Tareq Kawash, McDermott’s Senior Vice President for Europe, Africa, Russia and Caspian. “Our new office ensures we can deliver comprehensive solutions to our existing and future clients.”

McDermott is leasing approximately 4,180 square metres of office space. The building features a canteen, a gymnasium and surrounding parks and lake. There are currently 260 employees relocating with the potential to grow to approximately 350.

Bedfont Lakes office park is a business community served by a modern and efficient infrastructure which is home to a number of national and international companies. It provides an ideal working environment and offers a wealth of recreational opportunities for McDermott employees.

McDermott also has an office with approximately 300 employees in Paddington, London.
