As part of Ocean Installer’s global growth strategy, the company has established office in Perth, Australia to meet client demand for subsea construction services.

"This is the beginning of our presence in another promising region in line with Ocean Installer’s growth strategy. The Asia Pacific- and Oceania region represent significant growth opportunities in the years ahead,” says Ocean Installer CEO Steinar Riise.

Ocean Installer has recently hired Bijan K. Mahapatra to lead the office in Australia. Mr. Mahapatra has more than 30 years of experience in the offshore subsea engineering and construction industry where he has held senior leadership positions working for companies like McDermott, Bouygues Offshore, Clough Offshore, Riise Underwater Engineering and more recently with SapuraKencana.
