Hydro Group Scoops £2 Mln in Defence Contracts

Hydro Group has secured £2 million worth of new defence contracts for 2015.

This announcement comes as a result of a £300,000 investment in its armoured cabling line earlier this year.

Graham Wilkie, Sales Director at Hydro Group, said: “We are currently one of few companies in the UK to offer this cutting edge technology. The new armouring line demonstrates a significant advancement in our capabilities and skill set, and further enhances the scope of work we can offer the industry.”

The Aberdeen headquartered company, a global design and manufacturer of underwater cables and connectors for the subsea and defence sector, is showcasing its new machinery at the Underwater Defence & Security Conference in Portsmouth this month.

“The Underwater Defence and Security Conference is a key platform for showcasing our capabilities to the defence sector, providing the underwater community with a unique opportunity to understand evolving threats, as well as emerging and future technologies,” commented Wilkie.

Last year, Hydro Group was awarded a prestigious £2 million defence contract to aid BAE Systems in equipping the UK Royal Navy with its future long term nuclear submarine deterrent capability. The Group’s expertise and experience resulted in it being selected to design, develop and qualify a range of connectorised through hull penetrators, highlighting the significant capabilities of Hydro Group’s engineers, and the extensive product range the company offers.

“The demand for complex and challenging designs has grown in the last few years. This has resulted in our engineers applying their extensive knowledge and capabilities in materials and applications, developed over 30 years, to provide the highest quality solutions, designed for each environment,” concluded Wilkie.
