DUBAI, UAE -- McDermott International has renewed for a further 30 years the lease for its fabrication facility, marine base, and Middle East headquarters in the Jebel Ali Free Zone (Jafza) in Dubai.

The 58-ha (143-acre) yard has the capacity to perform over 8 million man-hours/yr of work, and over 50,000 metric tons/yr (55,115 tons/yr) of facilities, while also serving as the marine base to four work barges and a fleet of support vessels.
