As a result of a £300,000 investment in its ground breaking armoured cabling line earlier this year, Hydro Group Plc has secured £2million worth of new defence contracts for 2015.

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 and extensive product offerings to the industry at the Underwater Defence & Security Conference in Portsmouth this month.

The recent six-figure investment extends Hydro Group’s product line, equipping the company with armouring expertise, to offer custom-designed single and multi-layered steel armoured cables in galvanised improved steel and corrosion resistant steels.

Last year, Hydro Group was awarded a prestigious £2million 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.
