Aberdeen-based subsea cable and connector specialist Hydro Group, has expanded its premises by investing GBP 2 million in a new 13,700 square foot bespoke facility, set to open in spring 2016.
The company currently occupies a 45,500 sq ft facility at the Aberdeen Energy Park, purchasing the additional 0.63 acres of development land from Buccleuch Property and Moorfield Group (Buccmoor LP) to enable it to expand operations and develop a brand new workshop with mezzanine deck.
Doug Whyte, Hydro Group Managing Director, says, “The new facility and additional space was required in order to diversify and develop our business. It has been a significant investment for the future of our company, helping us to open up new business opportunities and deliver major growth plans for the company.”
The development follows on from a GBP 300,000 investment last year in the advanced armour line, which extended Hydro Group’s product capabilities, enabling it to offer cable products to improve and support subsea operations.
“We are now able to manufacture mechanically protected cables which can withstand higher stresses in subsea and defence operations, and the extra space means that we can also offer greater capacity in size and overall lengths," concludes Whyte.
