Aberdeen-based Hydro Group, a global designer and manufacturer of underwater cables and connectors for subsea, underwater, topside and onshore applications, is supplying products for a project underway by the Turkish Navy to build, what is said to be, the largest acoustic range in the world.
Hydro Group is manufacturing a full connectivity system for the Turkish Navy’s Acoustic Range, which is primarily for the calibration of systems, sea trials and exercises. The six-figure deal is one of a number of overseas projects the company has worked on recently as it steps up its international focus.
Commenting, Hydro Group Managing Director, Doug Whyte, said: “We have competed for tenders for a number of extremely interesting pieces of work this year taking place in the UK and internationally. Winning the contracts to supply a full connectivity system for what will be the biggest acoustic range built to date is very exciting and we hope it will lead to further work in the future.”
In addition, the Group says it has recently welcomed a number of visits by overseas delegations and politicians to its headquarters, as it sets about laying the foundations for expected growth of the company over the next 12 months.
