Cortez Subsea has strengthened its pipeline engineering capabilities with the formation of a new team in Cairo.
Six staff members have joined the company to deliver work globally and to position the company for further growth.
Managing director of Cortez Subsea in the UK, Alasdair Cowie, said: “We have enjoyed steady growth since 2019 when we were awarded a contract to lay the first ever mechanically connected pipeline offshore Malaysia.
“We also continue to build on our track record in delivering inspection campaigns worldwide.
“The team in Cairo means we can continue to strengthen our presence and adds additional skills and experience to our team. I’m delighted to welcome all of our new engineers on board.”
Among the new recruits is Mohamad Fathy who heads up the team. He said he was glad to come on board at a crucial time for the company:
“I am thrilled to have the opportunity to help deliver opportunities for the company. Cortez is in a strong position, having invested in its team and resources steadily this year so far.”
In support of project wins in 2019 Cortez Subsea currently employs 50 people in the UK, Malaysia and in Cairo.
Alasdair continued: “We have the flexibility to meet global challenges and our increasing focus on efficiencies helps us to meet our customer’s needs.
“We pride ourselves in collaborative working and have formed successful partnerships for doing business abroad.
“We are also committed to employing local nationals in the regions we operate and in supporting education and the industry in and around our areas of work to bolster our contribution to these regions.”
