Marine engineering technology company, HALO Maritime Defence Systems, has opened an office in Bahrain as part of its plans to expand its Middle East business portfolio.

Located within the Al Jasrah Tower in the Diplomatic Quarter, the office, which will be led by HALO’s vice president of business development Luke Ritter, is part of the firm’s move for investment in business development and building local relationships within the region.

HALO Maritime said it had an opportunity to rapidly expand its Middle East business portfolio by "taking advantage of the superior business climate" in Bahrain by lower operating costs, providing a local workforce with an array of valuable skills, and creating a position as a natural gateway to the entire region.

HALO will work on waterside security barrier technology to support infrastructure operators, who are faced with challenges related to waterborne threats.

“There are facilities throughout the Middle East such as Petroleum Refineries and Bulk Plants, Electric Power Plants, and Naval Bases, that have security perimeters on the water,” said Brendan Gray, president of HALO Maritime. “Investments are being made to secure these facilities, and we are well positioned to support these initiatives.”
