how we work

io is a pioneering development consultancy that is differentiated from the traditional front-end offering.


We are a joint venture between Baker Hughes and McDermott with the mission to work in the early front end of projects, bringing our specific techno-economic expertise integrated with the access to technology and execution know-how of our parents and partner organisations.
